The British actress is sometimes unrecognizable in her films. The proof in pictures.

A Golden Globe, a BAFTA Award and an Oscar. All won in 1993 thanks to the film Return to Howards End. Here is part of the prize list displayed on the counter by Emma Thompson. Since her debut in front of the camera in the 1980s, the British actress has had a string of successes, even paying herself the luxury of making a lasting place for herself in Hollywood. A success story that she owes to her talent but also to her ability to completely transform for roles. The proof with Nanny McPhee. Rebroadcast this Tuesday at 9:10 p.m. on M6 (and followed by its sequel, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang), this feature film signed Kirk Jones features an unrecognizable Emma Thompson. In this film, which marks his second collaboration with Colin Firththe actress leaves the glamor in the closet and appears hideously borderline, at least in part of the film.

On the occasion of the dissemination of this work which “assumes its dated spirit as The Baudelaire Orphans Where Harry Potterbut without offering the fantastic and spectacular dimension of the latter” (read Isabelle Danel’s review here), a look back at the sometimes improbable looks of Emma Thompson. In recent years, the actress particularly likes to transform, and she is not the only one: if you like “chameleon actors”you should like these articles:
