Emma Thompson & Michael Caine Speak Out Against 'Social Media Actors'

Emma Thompson and Michael Caine attended a royal reception for British Academy Award winners last week in London, England, and made their thoughts known about actors getting cast due to large social media followings.

“We’re casting actors who have big [social media] followings so the studios can use their followings to sell their movie. The actors are becoming attached in the sort of business way to their social media profiles, and I think that’s a disaster,” Emma said at the reception (via The Telegraph).

“These days, they just say, ‘I’m going to be an actor because I want to be rich and famous.’ And then they do a little part on television and everyone knows who they are. They can’t really act… I knew I wasn’t going to be rich, I knew I wasn’t going to be famous, I knew I wasn’t going to be a movie star, I just wanted to be a good actor, that’s all,” Michael said. “They’re very young now. I was 30 before I became well known. I’ve watched it ruin people. By the time they’re 30, they’re through.”

Emma Thompson Writes Touching Tribute to Frequent Co-Star Alan Rickman

Emma Thompson just wrote a very touching tribute to her friend and frequent collaborator Alan Rickman, who passed away on Thursday (January 14) at the age of 69 from cancer.

“Alan was my friend and so this is hard to write because I have just kissed him goodbye. What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humour, intelligence, wisdom and kindness. His capacity to fell you with a look or lift you with a word. The intransigence which made him the great artist he was – his ineffable and cynical wit, the clarity with which he saw most things, including me, and the fact that he never spared me the view,” the 56-year-old actress said in a statement to Just Jared.

“I learned a lot from him. He was the finest of actors and directors. I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to do with his face next. I consider myself hugely privileged to have worked with him so many times and to have been directed by him. He was the ultimate ally. In life, art and politics. I trusted him absolutely. He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again,” Emma concluded.

Emma and Alan worked together on several films including Sense and Sensibility, The Song of Lunch, The Winter Guest, Judas Kiss, the Harry Potter franchise, and Love Actually.

Emma Thompson Constructs Giant Polar Bear Statue to Protest Shell's Arctic Drilling

Emma Thompson and her fellow protesters construct a giant polar bear outside of the Shell building to protest Arctic drilling on Wednesday (September 2) in London, England.

The 56-year-old actress also helped place giant paw print stickers on the outside of the building. The stickers contain the names of seven million people who signed up to support the movement.

In addition, the polar bear statue is just feet away from the front entrance to the building and will remain there until Shell’s drilling window ends later in the month.

“Shell haven’t been listening. Shell have ignored the science. They want to drill in the Arctic up to the year 2030. It seems to me a monumental act of selfishness and greed. We cannot go on extracting oil in the way that we have,” Emma said about the Arctic’s fragile environment. She’s also urging people to “get the f*ck involved” in the movement.
