Our relationship to our body is not easy to understand. It's because of the patriarchy.

Emma Thompson has a nude scene in her upcoming film Good Luck to You. She looks at her unclothed body in a mirror with a neutral look. Thompson talked about her relationship to her body when she spoke to Colbert.

She said that she began to dislike her body when she was about 14. Neural pathways are carved into my soul. You think of all those eight-year-olds who say they don't like their thighs?

Thompson was asked if she had a message for the young people.

Don't waste your time worrying about your body, don't worry about anything else. She said there was no point in judging it, but it was very difficult to do.
