Read Emma Thompson’s Emotional Tribute To Friend Alan Rickman

Emma Thompson just released an extremely touching tribute to her friend, and also her frequent costar Alan Rickman who passed away Thursday (January 14th) due to cancer.

Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times shared Thompson’s tribute which reads as follows:

Alan was my friend and so this is hard to write because I have just kissed him goodbye.

What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humour, intelligence, wisdom, and kindness. His capacity to fell you with a look or lift you with a word.

That intransigence which made him the great artist that he was — his inedible and cynical wit, the clarity with which he saw most things, including me, and the fact that he never spared me the view. I learned a lot from him.

He was the finest of actors and directors. I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to do with his face next. I consider myself hugely privileged to have worked with him so many times and to have been directed by him.

He was the ultimate ally. In life, art and politics. I trusted him absolutely.

He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again.

Alan will absolutely be missed by many and many stars have already poured their hearts onto social media saying nothing but good things about this man.

Emma and Alan appeared in Love Actually, Judas Kiss, Sense and Sensibility, The Song of Lunch, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix.

Emma Thompson Had The Most Fun at The Golden Globes


Emma Thompson can blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol

So before the Golden Globes I didn’t know too much about Emma Thompson, I heard her name here and there but I didn’t know much about her. Then this happened. This drunk English woman stumbles up on stage holding her heels in one hand and her martini in the other and I fell in love. She then said that the red on her heels were her own blood and threw them behind her back to take the envelope to say who won the fucking award!

Emma was nominated for the Mary Popping movie called Saving Mr.Banks and honestly think that she knew she wasn’t going to win. So instead, Emma decided that she was going to make the absolute best of the Golden Globes. She was going to drink, she was going to present and she was going to steal the show.

Anyway, Emma Thompson is my new favorite person on this planet. I can only hope that she drinks before The Oscars so she can win them too without even getting an award.

If I am not Emma Thompson at 54 then I did something wrong.
