Dame Emma Thompson was all smiles and looked ultra-glamourous on Friday as she exited Sydney’s Cremorne Orpheum cinema.
The acclaimed actress, 63, goes nude in her role as a 55-year-old woman who forms a relationship with a younger male sex worker, played by Peaky Blinders star Daryl McCormack.
Thompson was clad in a stylish black unbuttoned jacket, black shirt, eye-popping neon gold leggings and box-fresh black shoes.
She accessorised her look with a stylish bob cut, fiery red lip stick and glowing foundation which beautifully complemented her own natural glow.
Excited Sydneysiders lined up for the chance to see the two-time Oscar winner in the flesh and Emma did not disappoint.
The Sense and Sensibility star cheerfully greeted fans and even reached out to hug the toddler daughter of one star struck individual.
Emma was recently at the centre of a debate surrounding her next movie, which sees her donning a ‘fat suit’ for the role of Roald Dahl’s Miss Trunchbull in a big screen musical adaptation of Matilda.
With the release of the trailer for the anticipated film last week came a debate about whether Emma was the right casting for the key character from Dahl’s beloved 1988 book.
Some commenters have said Emma, who wore a similar suit to play Karen in Love Actually, wearing body prosthetics is ‘offensive’.
One critic wrote on Twitter: ‘Yes, it’s offensive about Emma Thompson wearing a fat suit in Matilda. But the initial failure is that almost every woman Dahl wrote is either a sugar-sweet, pretty, good natured Miss Honey or a haggard evil (and in his mind, physically disgusting) Miss Trunchbull.’
Another stated: ‘I love Emma Thompson. She’s amazing.
