A bit of Emma wisdom

When I was an undergrad and had just read The Sense & Sensibility Screenplay & Diaries by Emma Thompson, I developed a huge girl crush on her. (Huge.) I loved her intelligence and sense of humor and most of all her down-to-earth way of seeing things. So of course I would get a kick out of this quote attributed to her. Enjoy life as it comes, right?

(via hip hip gin gin)

P.S. Remember how she did her 1996 Golden Globes acceptance speech for Best Motion Picture Screenplay in character as Jane Austen? (Fast-forward to about 1:08.) And how could I forget her as Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing?

    1. I have to rent a copy of Much Ado About Nothing this weekend just to watch her spar with Kenneth Branagh’s Benedick. And Kate Beckinsale is such a baby still in that movie.
