The woman can't even defend herself — she's dead!

Emma Thompson is writing the screenplay for the remake of My Fair Lady and she certainly had some opinions about the 1964 version's star Audrey Hepburn.

"I was thrilled to be asked to do it because, having a look at it, I thought that there needs to be a new version. I'm not hugely fond of the film. I find Audrey Hepburn fantastically twee. Twee is whimsy without wit. It's mimsy-mumsy sweetness without any kind of bite. And that's not for me.

"She can't sing and she can't really act, I'm afraid. I'm sure she was a delightful woman - and perhaps if I had known her I would have enjoyed her acting more, but I don't and I didn't, so that's all there is to it, really."

Wowsa, Emma! Tell us how ya really feel!

What do U think?
