It can't be easy being constantly hounded by the press when you're a celebrity, but Emma Thompson seems to be taking it all in stride.
The Oscar-winning actress was recently spotted by the paparazzi strolling home from a London pub with pal Hannah Gadsby, the Australian comedian who shot to fame after her critically-acclaimed comedy special Nanette came to Netflix in 2018.
But instead of playing it cool, the pair decided to ham it up for the cameras, showing off their sick dance moves.

Some people pointed out that the newspaper referred to Gadbsy as simply "Emma's friend."

Not that we'd complain, tbh.

The rest is history.
