In a sea of somber red carpets full of stars intent on getting the perfect photographs, Emma Thompson is a breath of fresh air. The Oscar-winning actress and writer never misses an opportunity to ham it up in front of the camera, be it cuddling up to costars, photobombing on the red carpet, or simply grabbing the nearest drink. She even famously brought a pig and a pint along with her when she got her star on the Walk of Fame! Famously outspoken, she is just as likely to make headlines for weighing in on social and political issues as she is for tossing her heels over her shoulder on stage. It’s no wonder everyone wants to get up close and personal with this beloved thespian. Just see these photos for proof!
