Who is emma thompson dating
Her first major film role was in the 1989 romantic comedy The Tall Guy.In 1992, Thompson won multiple acting awards, including an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award for Best Actress, for her performance in the British drama Howards End.In 1993, she received double Oscar nominations; for Best Actress for her acting in "The Remains of the Day" and for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of a campaigning lawyer Gareth Peirce in "In the Name of the Father".It is 18 years since Emma Thompson and Sir Kenneth Branagh, the golden couple of British cinema in the early 1990s, announced that they were separating amid rumours that he was having an affair with Helena Bonham Carter. Bonham Carter is said to have begun her affair with Branagh in 1994 while starring alongside him in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, which he directed. Branagh has been reluctant to discuss the break-up of his marriage to Thompson, although he said in 1998: “It's always sad, marriages breaking up.This was followed by parts in such films as "Dead Again" (1991), "Peter's Friends" (1992), and "Much Ado About Nothing" (1993).Her next film "Howards End", which featured her as lady Margaret Schlegel, won her a Best Actress Oscar. Thompson met Branagh in 1987, when they were both appearing in a BBC mini-series called Fortunes of War, and they married two years later.“I do sometimes wonder about whether there are alternatives, and about whether our fury and rage and disbelief and horror about infidelity is quite realistic,” she said.
She first came to prominence in 1987 in two BBC TV series, Tutti Frutti and Fortunes of War.“I've had so much bloody practice at crying in a bedroom, then having to go out and be cheerful, gathering up the pieces of my heart and putting them in a drawer,” she said. But I refuse to be affected over issues like this by how the world at large appears to feel.” Thompson, who is the only person ever to have won Oscars for both writing and acting, is now married to Greg Wise, an actor and producer whom she met on the set of the 1995 version of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.However, Thompson struck a more reconciled note about the fall-out from her relationship with Branagh in a new interview. The couple have one daughter, Gaia, 13, and a son, Tindyebwa Agaba, 26, a former child soldier from Rwanda whom they informally adopted when he was 16.Miss Winslet later helped get the couple together after Miss Thompson’s divorce from Brannagh came through.Miss Thompson confessed how her 43-year-old husband had been to consult a white witch when he was filming Sense and Sensibility and was told he would meet his future wife on set - and presumed this would be Miss Winslet.
