Emma Thompson has revealed she was mistaken for a man while walking naked through a field at her home in the country.
The Oscar-winner told Jonathan Ross she found out what had happened when a policeman knocked at the door of her home in Scotland one night and said a dog walker had called the police to say he had seen "a naked man, about 50 years old" walking on her land in the afternoon.
She said: "From behind me, on the stairs, Gaia, in her pjs was going, 'Wasn't that about the time that you came up from the river, mum?' Because behind the house there's a field and a pond. And there's sheep in the field, but they don't mind if I walk up naked. And I thought 'Oh my God, oh my God'.
"Making the connection, I could see the same thing happening to the policeman. And I could see him, as he backed off, and I was thinking, he's going to go back to the station and he's going to say, 'You see that Emma Thompson? Her tits must be so low that from a distance they read as testicles.'
"I nearly lifted up my nightie to show that they're not that bad."
Emma is appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV1 at 9.30pm tonight.
