Thompson in Pie-Throwing Fracas

26 January 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Emma Thompson sparked a pie-throwing melee during her appearance on talk show Late Show With David Letterman Tuesday night when she hurled a creamy dessert at the veteran host. The Howards End Oscar-winner threw a pie at co-star Angela Lansbury in her latest film, Nanny McPhee, and was explaining to Letterman what the experience was like. She recalls, "Proudest moment of my acting career, really. I didn't know that pie-throwing was so cathartic. It's heaven throwing pies. But they have to have weight to them - heavy cream." Letterman stunned the actress by producing a cream pie and challenged her to test her skills by throwing a pie at his face. The shocked actress stood up, took aim and threw, managing to cover half of the host's face with the pie, while the show's house band played Rule Britannia in the background. Thompson set off a chain reaction of cream pie throwing involving bandleader Paul Shaffer, the show's announcer and a cue card holder, which ended with Thompson herself getting a pie in the face from Letterman. »

Thompson Keeps Oscars in the Bathroom

17 January 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Emma Thompson keeps her two Oscars in her bathroom because she is embarrassed to show them off in a more prominent position in her home. The 46-year-old won the Best Actress Academy Award in 1993 for her role in Howards End and a Best Screenplay statuette for her 1996 Sense And Sensibility script, adapted from Jane Austen's classic novel. She says, "They look far too outre anywhere else. They're great big, gold, shiny things. They're up there tarnishing quietly along with everything else I own, including my body." »
