Co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal:
“I’m in London now shooting ‘Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang’ with Emma Thompson, which has been amazing. We both brought our daughters to the set. I’m in love with her. She’s kind of a goddess, I think.”

“Early on, Emma gave me a couple of notes. And she’s not directing me, she’s acting with me! If some other actor started giving me notes I would tell them to **** off – there is not one other actor I would allow that from. But they were fantastic notes – clear and totally helpful. I just thought to myself, ‘She’s teaching me and I’d be an idiot not to accept it.’ And Emma’s what, 50? It would be silly of me not to acknowledge that she knows more than I do.”
