Emma Thompson doesn’t always find it easy to accept her own body. She admitted this at a press conference.
Emma Thompson (63) does not always feel comfortable in her own skin. The actress admitted this in an interview at the Berlin Biennale. “Women, try to stand in front of the mirror, take off your clothes – and don’t move. Just accept it and don’t judge yourself. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” the Brit quoted the Mail Online as saying Press conference of their new film “Good Luck to You, Leo Grande”. According to Thompson, “Women have been brainwashed their entire lives to hate their bodies.”
Thompson compared herself to her character Nancy from the new tragic comedy. While the actress is constantly trying to make herself look better, Nancy has stopped. Nancy is a 55-year-old teacher who, after the death of her husband, hires a callboy to experience orgasm for the first time in her life.
