Emma Thompson graced the cover of this month's More magazine.
What We Love About Emma: Besides being a tireless advocate of causes, Emma Thompson is an advocate of women's bodies. With the recent media frenzy over Jessica Simpson's weight, we admire Emma for standing up to Hollywood:
When she was filming Brideshead, the producers asked 25-year-old Hayley Atwell, who was playing Julia Flyte, to lose weight.
“I went absolutely ballistic,” Thompson says. “She didn’t need to lose weight, and it upset her deeply. It was an evil thing to do.”
Thompson threatened to resign, but the producers backed down.
Now she feels justified: “She looks so beautiful and womanly, you think, that’s what God intended!”
Amen to that, Emma.
