Emma Thompson Gets Honest About Filming Nude Scenes, And How Hulu’s Leo Grande Was Thankfully Different

With 40 years of acting experience under her belt, the incomparable Emma Thompson has been on a ton of film sets throughout the years. Four of those earned her Oscar nominations, and in many others she delivered memorable performances in the fabric of Hollywood. In the actress’ latest movie, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, Thompson gets especially vulnerable, emotionally and physically, and she got candid about how her recent experience compares to years prior. 

In the new Hulu release, Emma Thompson plays Nancy, a 60-something school teacher and widow who decides to hire a sex worker to get some and maybe finally orgasm for the first time in her life. For the film, the actress bares her skin to empower Leo Grande’s message of reminding women to love their own bodies at whatever age and not be afraid of sexual pleasure. When speaking to CinemaBlend about her experience, Thompson shared how the production made her and her co-star Daryl McCormack feel comfortable when baring it all. In her words (and also in the video above): 

We kind of all worked together to create the right atmosphere. One practical thing, for instance, that we did, was at the beginning of the process we all disrobed, [director Sophie Hyde], Daryl and I just to sort of get used to just standing in a room when we hadn’t got clothes on. And that was a very useful thing to do and very touching and interesting. And then that’s out of the way and you’ve done it so you don’t worry about it. But, what we did was we came on set first, before any crew, before a camera, before sound and we got naked and just wandered around the set, making it our own – so that the crew then came into our space. It was our space and our atmosphere.
