Emma Thompson About Her Failed Marriage With Branagh



Actress Emma Thompson for the first time, revealed a reason for the failure of her marriage with Kenneth Branagh. Apparently, she was a little too “bossy” for the director.

The Oscar winner’s now married to Greg Wise and she’s hoping not to repeat the same mistakes from her previous six-year marriage, which was doomed due to her high demands.

She revealed, “I’m a bit bossy, and I have to say some people find it quite difficult to deal with: Mentioning no names, but my first husband.”

She also revealed she has nothing against Helena Bonham-Carter, who came between herself and Branagh nearly two decades ago, adding, “It’s all blood under the bridge. 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.”

After Branagh split from Emma, she briefly dated Bonham-Carter, but their romance ended in 1999, after the actress went for Tim Burton.

Thompson adds, “We are alike, being slightly mad and a bit fashion-challenged. Perhaps that’s why Ken loved us both. She’s a wonderful woman, Helena.”
