Okay I missed all of this. This was before I paid attention to salacious celebrity gossip because at this point I was in elementary school and was just worried about like, keeping my sister out of my room or something.
SO for people like myself, here’s the story. Emma and Kenneth were married years ago, and the reason that marriage ended is because Kenneth entered into an extramarital affair with Helena while filming ‘Frankenstein’ and that relationship lasted 5 years. And now, Emma says she and Helena are cool. There’s no ‘Team Emma’ or anything.
Miss Thompson said the break-up was ‘all blood under the bridge’, adding: ‘You can’t hold on to anything like that.
‘It’s pointless. I haven’t got the energy for it. Helena and I made our peace years and years ago.’
Wise words. Also, it was years ago and it helped give her inspiration for her heartbreaking character in Love Actually (which is one of my favorite movies of ALL TIME).
‘I’ve had so much bloody practice at crying in a bedroom, then having to go out and be cheerful, gathering up the pieces of my heart and putting them in a drawer,’
Aww. Kenneth is apparently a dirtbag. Who knew. And then years later they all have starred in Harry Potter movies. Weird.
