Just days after landing a star on the Walk of Fame, Emma Thompson threw a few verbal bombs at one of Hollywood's most beloved actresses.
"I find Audrey Hepburn fantastically twee," she said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. "Twee is whimsy without wit. It's mimsy-mumsy sweetness without any kind of bite. And that's not for me," she said.
The "Sense and Sensibility" star added that she was "thrilled" to be involved with a remake of the famous musical because she's "not hugely fond" of the original.
"She can't sing and she can't really act, I'm afraid," Thompson added. "I'm sure she was a delightful woman - and perhaps if I had known her I would have enjoyed her acting more, but I don't and I didn't, so that's all there is to it, really," she said in a separate interview with Variety.
