"I'm not hugely fond of [My Fair Lady]. I find Audrey Hepburn fantastically twee. ... Twee is whimsy without wit. It is 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." — Emma ThompsonI'm clearly more of a fan than Thompson but the thing that has always grated on me is the girlishness; the desexualised, Pannish quality that allowed her to play nuns so easily. I will get into great trouble with my wife for saying this, but I don't think I've ever been entirely happy with any movie featuring nuns. Excepting their use in dream sequences, I've spent most of my moviegoing life in flight from the wimple.
