Happy Birthday, Emma Thompson

This British dame is the only person to win an Oscar for both acting (for her housekeeper role in 1993’s The Remains of the Day) and for a screenplay (for her 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility). She’s a shapeshifter, for sure, also playing the kooky Sybil Trelawney in the Harry Potter franchise and the cheated-on wife and prime minister’s sister in Love, Actually. She has always struck me as so honest and real—ever more so at 60 (like me). 1140-emma-thompson.web
