All Hail Emma Thompson

Everyone is having their say about Harvey Weinstein. But nobody has put in their 2 cents (2 pence?) quite like Emma Thompson. She’s just telling it like it is — bluntly, eloquently, and honestly. BBC Newsnight has been releasing quotes and clips from tonight’s interview with her, and they are FIRE:





“I don’t think you can describe him as a sex addict - he’s a predator”

“I spent my twenties trying to get old men’s tongues out of my mouth”

And perhaps the most damning, regarding whether there are others like Weinstein in Hollywood: “Of course, many. Maybe not to that degree. Do they have to all be as bad as him to make it count?

Is this where we all rise up and say YASSSS QUEEN?
