    Default Emma Thompson vs. Miramax

    Weight/body issues and Hollywood unfortunately seem to go hand in hand. I heard that two time Oscar winning actor Emma Thompson threw some of her star weight around (pun intended) with producers at Miramax, where she is working on an upcoming version of Brideshead Revisited. It seems that Miramax was demanding her costar, Hayley Atwell, drop a few pounds. It happens all the time; a studio asks an already fit actress to slim down for a role, but Emma provided a little reality check to the situation and took matters into her own hands.

    Hayley explained the situation to the First Post like this:
    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. I told her why and she hit the roof.
    The next day, Emma called the producers and threatened to quit her role if they forced Haley to lose weight. The studio quickly relented. Look for the two actresses in the upcoming film version of Brideshead Revisited.

    i love emma thompson!
    her co-star looks fine, she has a great figure.

    on a shallow fashion note, her dress is a wee bit too long - it needs to hit her right on the knee or right above it - and that combined with the shoes make her legs look a bit stumpy.

    I don't see a problem with Hayley's weight at all. Maybe by Hollywood standards she could lose weight. By normal standards, I think she looks great.

    I really wish that studios, etc. would stop trying to create this image that their stars are just naturally stick thin because no normal person can survive that way.

    Her legs are stumpy - flesh coloured shoes would have kept the eye from immediately going to her fatty ankles.
