Daily Bale

Emma Bale-son

She graduated from Cambridge University where she read English Literature and was Hugh Laurie’s girlfriend (and fellow Footlighter).  She is still closest of friends with both Hugh and Stephen Fry.  She was married to Kenneth Branagh (he left her for Helena Bonham Carter, that slime), and has since married actor Gary Wise.  She is the only actress to have won Oscars for both writing and acting, aaaand she and her current husband quietly adopted a 16 year old Rwandan refugee.  (They only made his adoption a public matter when the British government tried to deport him back to Rwanda  even though his family had all been victims of genocide.) For all these reasons and many more, she’s today’s Bale.

  1. Opening sequence of Much Ado, Emma in that tree, eating grapes, reading “Sigh No More Ladies…”

    I don’t get girl crushes often, but I’d give up all men forever for her 😛

  3. I think it’s Greg Wise – he played Willoughby in Sense and Sensibility?

  5. Yeah, he’s hot. He should be a Bale, too. He married Emma, so he obviously has taste. Of course, I say that as if I can’t make that happen… 🙂
