British actress Emma Thompson had to bare it all for her upcoming film Good Luck To You, Leo Grande and the 62-year-old actress admitted it was a “challenging” thing to do.In the drama-comedy, Thompson plays a widowed schoolteacher who hires a younger male escort to enjoy a night of pleasure and self-discovery and in one scene, her character completely disrobes in front of a mirror.
She talked about the experience on Saturday (Jan 22) during the Cinema Cafe discussion at Sundance Film Festival, where the film was showing.“It’s very challenging to be nude at 62,” said Thompson. “I don’t think I could’ve done it before the age that I am, and yet, of course, the age that I am makes it extremely challenging because we aren’t used to seeing untreated bodies on the screen.”Read more: CNA »
