Emma Thompson was interviewed alongside her co-star Emma Stone, by Mark Heyes on Lorraine on Wednesday and she revealed the underwear she had to wear beneath her character’s costume was ‘like a torture item’.
She said: “It’s like squeezing a tube of toothpaste in the middle, if you squeeze it hard enough then things will come up and go down and make the shapes. But it’s like you’re dealing with a Plasticine person”.
Italy: Cruella record at the box office! The movie by director Craig Gillespie grossed 450 thousand euros over the weekend! 🎉🎉🎉
Emma Thompson is the antagonist and we rarely see her in a villainous role absolutely but she is able to play the bad guy for once.
“I drew on the life, obviously. I think if my husband were in the room, he’d say, no acting required, really. I had such fun doing her because I think I’ve been asking for quite a number of years if I could be a villain, a proper villain. I spent decades playing what my mother used to call, “Good women in frocks.” And, now I got to play a really evil woman in frocks. But, oh boy the frocks. I mean they wore me, actually, I had just the best, best time. Every time Em and I would come on set, we’d just look at each other and walk around each other like we were sculptures or works of art or something, which we were”.
Emma talks about the plot! 😍
Arrogance is bliss. You don’t become legendary by being nice.
