Emma Thompson puts on an animated display in glittery magenta blazer at movie photocall in Berlin

Emma Thompson looked in high spirits as she attended the Good Luck to You, Leo Grande photocall in Germany on Saturday evening.

The playful actress, 62, tugged on her co-star Daryl McCormack’s tie at the 72nd Berlinale International Film Festival Berlin at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Germany.

The screen star turned heads in an eye-catching glittery magenta blazer that sparkled under the lights, which she wore over an elegant black jumpsuit.

She paired the colourful ensemble with a pair of chunky black boots and added a pair of hoop earrings. 

Her short hair was artfully tousled and she finished her look off with a slick of raspberry-coloured lipstick. 

The film tells the story of Emma’s character who is a retired widow who hires a young prostitute named Leo Grande, in the hope of enjoying a night of pleasure and self-discovery.

It comes after Emma reflected on living with both her mother Phyllida, 89, and daughter Gaia, 22, during the Covid lockdown.

She admitted she is ‘grateful’ for her body but is ‘depressed’ about her thighs as she discussed witnessing the ageing process in her mother. 

In an essay for The Guardian, Emma wrote about the connection between the three of them and how they both affect her own self-image.

Emma wrote: ‘Instead of grieving my mother’s ageing, instead of envying my daughter’s youth, I find I am buoyed up and calmed down by turn.

‘I’m grateful I can still get up a hill and I’m depressed about my thighs.’

Emma said she enjoyed the ‘miraculous luxury’ of living with both her mother and daughter as the ‘umbilical connection’ between them ‘tugged’ at her.

The actress wrote that living between them is a mixture of joy and grief, adding that her daughter ‘thrums’ with energy and she must have done that herself once. 

The essay comes after Emma recently discussed what it’s like to be an actress in her sixties, saying she is against having cosmetic surgery. 

She said ageing is ‘completely natural’ and said the urge to avoid the appearance of it is ‘collective psychosis’. 

Speaking to The Wrap, she said: ‘Why would you do that to yourself, I simply don’t understand. 

‘I do honestly think the cutting of yourself off to put it in another place in order to avoid appearing to do what you’re actually doing, which is ageing, which is completely natural, is a form of collective psychosis. I really do think it’s a very strange thing to do.’

Emma added that this is not a new opinion and she has always felt that way, saying she is a ‘militant feminist’ when it comes to women’s bodies.
