Emma Thompson departs in style from a Sydney theater after a Q&A for her latest movie.


After the Q&A for her new movie, Emma Thompson departs in style from the Sydney theater.

As she left Sydney’s Cremorne Orpheum theater on Friday, Dame Emma Thompson was beaming and appeared incredibly glamorous.

She was present at a Q&A session for Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, the obscene comedy-drama in which she stars.

The renowned actress, 63, strips off for her part as a 55-year-old who develops a relationship with a younger male sex worker, played by Peaky Blinders actor Daryl McCormack.

The outfit Thompson was wearing included a chic black unbuttoned jacket, a black shirt, vibrant neon gold leggings, and brand-new black shoes.

She completed her ensemble with a chic bob cut, fiery red lip gloss, and glowing foundation that perfectly complemented her own radiant skin.

In anticipation of seeing the two-time Oscar winner in person, eager Sydneysiders lined up, and Emma did not dissapoint.

The Sense and Sensibility actor warmly greeted fans and even extended a hug to one fan’s young daughter who was star-struck.

Emma recently found herself in the middle of a controversy over her upcoming film, in which she will play Miss Trunchbull from Roald Dahl’s Matilda in a big-screen musical adaptation.

When the trailer for the eagerly awaited movie was made public last week, there was discussion as to whether Emma was the best choice to play the central figure in Dahl’s well-loved 1988 novel.

Some commenters have called Emma’s use of body prosthetics, which she wore to play Karen in Love Actually while donning a similar suit, “offensive.”

The fact that Emma Thompson wore a fat suit in Matilda is offensive, a critic tweeted.

However, the fundamental flaw is that almost every woman Dahl created is either a sugar-sweet, pretty, kind-hearted Miss Honey or a haggard, evil (and, in his opinion, physically repulsive) Miss Trunchbull.

I adore Emma Thompson, said someone else.

She is amazing.

“However, there are many incredibly gifted plus-sized actresses who are routinely overlooked and should be considered for these roles instead of making a thin actress wear a fat suit,” the author writes.
