DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS OSCAR WINNING ACTRESS?

She’s ducking to avoid the rain as she runs into a runway show during Fashion Week in New York. We had NO idea that this was Emma Thompson! We’re so accustomed to seeing this English actress play delicate Victorian women in literary adaptations or smart matronly characters with a sense of humor, that this off-camera style is a pleasant surprise. She’s been promoting her new movie The Children Act (she plays a judge) and in the course of doing so, she admitted that Donald Trump once called and asked her out on a date…

WHAT IF EMMA THOMPSON HAD SAID “YES” TO DONALD TRUMP?

Only in America can you learn about how your future president used to try to pick up women when he was single! Back in 1998 when Donald Trump had split with Marla Maples and had not yet met Melania, he was trying to hook up by phone. Talkative actress Emma Thompson told this story to a European magazine: She received a call out of the blue in her trailer on the set where she was filming Primary Colors. “Hi – it’s Donald Trump here- I just, you know, wondered if I could offer you some accommodation in one of my Trump Towers- they’re really comfortable.” He continued “I think we could get along very well- maybe we could have dinner some time!” Surprised Emma politely and diplomatically declined, but wishes she had taken him up on the offer. “Think of the STORIES!” (Frankly, we are surprised by Donald’s attraction to a smart and entertaining woman like Emma.)

TOM HANKS HAS THE WALT DISNEY LOOK DOWN PAT

Walt Disney has always been one of our heroes, and who better to play him in a movie than Tom Hanks? That explains why Tom has been promoting “Cloud Atlas” with that peculiar mustache. “Saving Mr Banks” is the story of Walt’s 20 year pursuit of the film rights to author PL Travers’ (played by Emma Thompson) novel “Mary Poppins.” Disney’s daughters adored the book and he promised to turn it into a movie. He developed an interesting relationship with Travers through the years of negotiation. We look forward to seeing vintage Disneyland. (Above are some photos from scenes filmed at Disneyland.)

EMMA THOMPSON IS NOT A TYPICAL ACTRESS

We love Emma Thompson, for quietly and without fanfare, adopting a desperate teenager from Rwanda and giving him a life and a future. The photo above shows proud Emma and her husband Greg Wise at the graduation ceremony at the University of Exeter where her adopted son Tindy got his degree. Tindy (real name Tindyebwa) was an orphan and child soldier who fled Rwanda when he was sixteen. With Emma’s guidance he learned English and has excelled in school. He plans to get a Masters degree in politics.

EMMA THOMPSON: GENEROSITY WITHOUT FANFARE

We couldn’t help being impressed by Emma Thompson’s good heart. We didn’t know that five years ago she “adopted” a sixteen year old boy who was a homeless Rwandan refugee. She brought him home to live with her family and has been paying for his education. The young man (pictured above) named Tindyebwa Agaba, is now in his second year at Emma’s alma mater, Cambridge University , aiming toward a degree in politics. He plans to become a lawyer and return to his country. Generous Emma gave him a life.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
