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”.
Alessandro Glorio, of Café Gelato in Norwich, met Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormick, the stars of the film Good Luck To You, Leo Grande. They both enjoyed a well earned treat of Italian gelato during the shot of the new film.
The man was delighted to start a conversation in Italian with Emma.
Mr Glorio said: “The day of the filming we had an unexpected surprise, Emma Thompson came in. There was another surprise, she started to speak with us in a very good Italian.
“We immediately felt at ease with her, a lovely easy going person and a really expert of Italian gelato. Adorable.”
