Thompson tackles political issues
Actor Emma Thompson says she actively uses her fame to talk about political issues. The 58-yearold, who will next be seen in upcoming film Alone in Berlin, is very vocal about her passion for the environment and feels it’s her responsibility to use her profile to talk about these things and try and make a difference, reports metro. co.uk. “I just do it because it seems natural. Everything is political. So I’ve never, ever done any of these interviews without it becoming a political discussion because that’s what life is. It would be dull if all we did was talk about films,” Thompson said. The actor makes sure her political views are fully backed up with information from various sources.
