Emma Thomp­son is fed up with fat-sham­ing

Metro USA (New York) - - Gossip -

Emma Thomp­son, fem­i­nist queen and for­ever Pro­fes­sor Trelawney in my heart, is tak­ing on body-sham­ing.

The 57-year-old ac­tress ap­peared on Swedish talk show “Skavlan,” and not so fondly re­called a time when her co-star was crit­i­cized for her weight. “There was a won­der­ful ac­tress in a film I did called ‘Brideshead Re­vis­ited.’ The pro­ducer said to her, ‘Will you lose some weight?’ And she was ab­so­lutely ex­quis­ite!” She threat­ened to quit the film if the pro­ducer brought it up again. Get it, girl.

Dear Dum­ble­dore: May we be graced with Emma Thomp­son’s pres­ence for­ever and ever, amen.
