"It is evil what is going on out there and it is getting worse", Thompson continued. "Sorry, do you want me to be an actress or a model?"

I'd hereby like to nominate Emma Thompson for Queen of the World, please. "Can you imagine? Every time I go to Los Angeles I think "Oh god I am too fat to go there.' I think they are saying to me when I arrive 'You are fat and you are old". Then the doctor we spoke to says this conversation should not stop with celebrities.

"I went round to Emma's one night and she was getting very angry that I wasn't eating all the food she was giving me".
