Atwell has reported that she was asked by the film company to lose weight
for her role as Julia Flyte. It was only when co-star Emma Thompson

(who will play Lady Marchmain) heard the news that things got resolved:

Says Atwell: “I went
round to Emma’s one night and she was getting very angry that I wasn’t
eating all the food she was giving me. I told her why and she hit the
roof.” The no-nonsense Thompson was so outraged that she called
the producers the next day and threatened to resign from the film if
they forced Atwell to lose weight. Faced with Thompson — a two-time
Oscar winner — on the warpath, Miramax Films swiftly relented.’ (x

Gosh, that part in Much Ado About Nothing when Beatrice and Benedick read each other’s secret love letters and admit their love is always so cute. But, like, too cute. 

That’s more like it. That’s the response I’d expect of two hyper-critical sarcastic dorks in love.

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.

Emma Thompson and Greg Wise(her husband) met Tindyebwa, known as Tindy for short, at a Refugee Council party in 2003, when he was 16 years old.

His father had died from AIDS when he was just nine and his mother and sister were listed as missing during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, having probably been abducted by soldiers.

Tindy was forced to serve as a child soldier, but charity Care International eventually helped him flee to Britain, where he met his adoptive parents.

Emma and her husband adopted him discreetly without trying to get a lot of publicity over it. They cared and supported Tindy for many years and he is now a human rights lawyer. [x]

I have a nervous breakdown in the film and in one scene I get to stand at the top of the stairs waving an empty sherry bottle which is, of course, a typical scene from my daily life, so isn’t much of a stretch.
