Emma Thompson’s date to the ‘Nanny McPhee’ premiere is a real pig


On those rare occasions when I find something to write about for my beloved Emma Thompson, I always want to begin the post with “I love you I love you I love you Emma Thompson marry me.” Because I would marry her. In a heartbeat. I think we would have a wonderful life together. She and I and her daughter Gaia and this lovely little pig. The pig was Emma’s “date” for the London premiere of Nanny McPhee and The Big Bang. God, I love her. Look how she’s posing with the pig. My guess is that the dress is Vivienne Westwood. I don’t know who dressed the fabulous sow.

Not only is Emma the star of Nanny McPhee, she wrote the screenplay and she’s an executive producer. So who do you think came to her and asked, “Um, how about the pig as your date?” And instead of pulling rank, Emma was like, “A pig? Fabulous.” Of course, she might have been drunk, too. Because she looks kind of drunk in these photos. Not that that’s a bad thing! I would love to be drunk with her. I would imagine it would involve a lot dramatic readings while wearing scarves and a lampshade.


Oh, here’s Emma with husband Greg Wise (swoon!) and daughter Gaia. Gaia is a pretty little thing.


Maggie Gyllenhaal is also in Nanny McPhee, and she was at the premiere. Ralph Fiennes is also in it! Random, right? But Ralph didn’t come to the premiere unfortunately.


Rhys Ifans is also in the film. By the way, when did Rhys Ifans become such a panty-dropper? Is it just the beard? If it’s just the beard, then I hope this man never shaves again. This is a really, really hot look for him, and I’ve never felt anything for him before now.

    Yep she looks sauced,but I’d get drunk if escorting a sow down the red carpet. Cute shoes. Rhys doesn’t have much a chin, I think the beard helps him look more alpha male.

    wow! Emma’s daughter is a real beauty! 🙂

    She looks a bit weird in pics with pig but seems to be enjoying herself 🙂

    Yep, the dress is Vivienne Westwood.

    She looks really good.

    What’s with Maggie’s bra? It looks like she’s wearing a regular bra with the straps shoved down along her sides rather than on her shoulders. Sadly, that’s a little trick I use in a pinch if I don’t have a strapless that works!

    Wow Emma looks much prettier than Maggie!I love her.

  7. Sudini says:

    I love Emma SO much. And that pig is the cutest with all of his/her curly hair. I just want to take him/her home.

  8. Bodhi says:

    Nanny McPhee, I loved that movie! Emma Thompson is one of my favorite actresses.

    I’ve had a thing for Rhys Ifans since 2000 when he was in Little Nicky. He’s got a very strange handsomeness about him. And he’s playing Luna Lovegood’s dad in the next Harry Potter movie, this makes me happy.

    Love her; she’s so lovely and is a wonderful actress.

    But there is some wonkiness in the boob-area, am I the only one seeing this?

  13. lrm says:

    wait, so this is part two? or is it a play? I’m confused….nanny mcphee with colin firth was great fun!
    I guess part deux will be very different? Or am I forgetting the title of the previous one?

  14. lrm says:

    oh,nevermind; I just saw ‘and the big bang’…so it is part two.
    Something my whole family will enjoy at the theater! frankly,even my kid doesn’t like most of the animated insanity these days…he doesn’t even like going to the movies b/c it’s all cr*p, i tell ya! for kids, anyway.
