Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Entertainment -

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.
