Emma Thompson Gets Real About Anorexia & Weight Issues in Hollywood

Emma Thompson is speaking out about the demands in Hollywood for actresses and actors to be very thin.

“There was a wonderful actress in a film I did called Brideshead Revisited,” she said. “The producer said to her, ‘Will you lose some weight?’ And I said to them, ‘If you speak to her about this again on any level, I will leave this picture. You are never to do that’….It’s evil what’s happening there, and it’s getting worse,” Emma said on the TV program Skavlan (via Us Weekly).

“The anorexia, there’s so many kids, girls and boys now, and actresses who are very, very thin into their 30s, who simply don’t eat. They don’t eat! Sometimes there are just some subjects that you absolutely have to make noise about because it’s so tedious and it’s gone on and on,” she added.

Emma Thompson Says Donald Trump Asked Her Out

The Beauty and the Beast actress said she was in her trailer when the phone rang and the voice on the other end said, “Hi, it’s Donald Trump here.” She added, it was “like a moose has just entered my trailer,” (via Page Six).

Emma Thompson Says It's 'Too Soon' to Revisit Her 'Love Actually' Character Without Alan Rickman

We already knew that Emma Thompson will not be in the upcoming Love Actually short sequel and now she’s explaining why her character won’t make an appearance.

In the classic holiday movie, Emma‘s character is married to Alan Rickman‘s character. Sadly, Alan passed away last year and writer Richard Curtis said it would be too sad to revisit the character so soon.

Richard wrote to me and said, ‘Darling we can’t write anything for you because of Alan‘ and I said, ‘No of course, it would be sad, too sad,’” Emma told PA.

“It’s too soon,” she added. “It’s absolutely right because it’s supposed to be for Comic Relief, but there isn’t much comic relief in the loss of our dear friend really only just over a year ago. We thought and thought but it just seemed wrong but to revisit the wonderful fun characters of Bill Nighy and Hugh Grant and Liam [Neeson] and all of that; that’s fantastic but obviously what would he have done?”

“Both of them would be in therapy by now and I would be working on some kind of ward. It was absolutely the right decision,” she added.

These 'Love Actually' Characters Won't Be in the Reunion Special

Everyone is so excited about the Love Actually reunion that is being filmed to benefit the Red Nose Day charity event, but sadly some of the beloved characters will not be featured in the special.

Alan Rickman sadly passed away over a year ago and a tribute to the late actor has not been planned, director Richard Curtis reportedly has said.

“You know, dealing with Alan is very complicated, so not really,” Richard told the Press Association (via Huffington Post) about including a tribute.

“We’re not doing everyone. We’re doing about two thirds of people,” he added. “[Emma Thompson] isn’t in it. She just can’t do it.”

Emma and Alan played a married couple whose marriage was strained by the end of the film.

Another character we won’t be seeing is Laura Linney‘s Sarah.

You can look forward to seeing Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rowan Atkinson, and more in the special though!
