to have just realised how amazing Emma Thompson is?

We watched Beauty and the Beast and I told my husband, "you know, out of everyone there, you'd really think Emma Thompson is Mrs Potts".

Then I realised every role she's ever been, she gets lost in it. She becomes the character.

That's rare.

I agree, she is a fabulous actress.

Fairyliz Wed 05-Apr-17 20:22:16

Is that you Emma?

I love her. She really is an amazing actress.

GeekGoddess Wed 05-Apr-17 20:25:03

She is fabulous. There are only a handful of actors who are always fabulous, but she is one of them.

Professionally I agree. Which is why I avoid interviews etc with her because it ruins the spell!!

AteRiri Wed 05-Apr-17 20:28:58

Fairyliz - I'm more Emma Watson than Emma Thompson :P

I also remembered one of the very few times I shed a tear while watching a movie - when she found out that Alan Rickman's character gave her a CD (instead of a necklace) in Love Actually.

She used to live near me - and a friend worked with her. Unsurprisingly she's really nice "in real life"

Yabu to have only just realised grin

She's one of my favourites. She's very convincing and draws you in to her characters.

I love Emma Thompson. Have you seen her on QI? She was very funny.

Oysterbabe Wed 05-Apr-17 20:35:00

She is wonderful.

She's awesome. Loved her in sense & sensibility

Chippednailvarnishing Wed 05-Apr-17 20:37:33

Great screenwriter too.

HermioneJeanGranger Wed 05-Apr-17 20:38:41

I love Emma Thompson! She's wonderful.

JustSpeakSense Wed 05-Apr-17 20:41:53

Every role she plays seems written just for her, she is incredibly talented.

Love her...absolutely love her.....but her accent in beauty and the beast was fucking atrocious! I was so looking forward to her in it but it was shit!

TooManyTrolls Wed 05-Apr-17 20:45:23

Oh dear, I find her really annoying and too much of a fake leftie 'luvvy'

I've no personal gripe with her and I'm sure she is lovely etc but her voice drives me nuts. 😂 and I really can't respect anyone who want to marry luvvy supremo Ken Branagh. Bleugh. 🤢

BTW I've no beef with lefties

rubberducker Wed 05-Apr-17 20:46:20

I agree with legopiece - generally love her but thought she was really annoying in beauty and the beast, what was that accent about??!

MessiIsTheBest Wed 05-Apr-17 20:49:12

Her portrayal of Gareth Pierce in In The Name Of The Father was good

user1489261248 Wed 05-Apr-17 20:49:31

She's bloody wonderful.

Loved her in Love Actually. Her portrayal of the cheated-on wife was amazing.

She made me laugh when she said she's a character actress because she's not pretty! PMSL! Silly girl! grin She is very pretty!

Have to agree with a pp though; her accent in 'Beauty' wasn't great.

BitOutOfPractice Wed 05-Apr-17 20:49:43

Nanny McPhee. That's a great kids film that I loved too. She's fab. She always seems like the kind of woman who'd be a great friend and a good laugh in the pub

JessiCake Wed 05-Apr-17 21:07:30

Oh I was just coming on to praise her for Nanny McPhee! Fabulous films and she's great in them too.

Her accent was dire in B and the B though.

I sort of have to like her as a lot of people tell me I look a bit like her (I don't think I do) and I do think she's a good actress.

My friend used to live near her and she was v nice apparently. She lives/d over the road from her own mum. Friend also knows her sister who is nice too.

Toomanytrolls I'm with you. Don't like her. I saw her H being interviewed, he was promoting a TV drama he was in. He then proceeded to talk down to the interviewer and told them that they didn't have a TV as it was beneath them. Condescending twat.
