Emma Thompson reveals the hilarious reason she accepted her damehood

Emma Thompson received the honour of accepting the Dame Commander of the British Empire earlier this year for her services to drama.

Thompson appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers where she talked about her life as a dame.

The 59-year-old joked around that she now tries to appear more superior to other people by slightly raising her chair higher so the other person would have to look up at her when they talk.

She then admits her hypocrisy of accepting a medal that celebrated a dark time of the British Empire, when all she wanted was to the receive the badge that came along with the damehood.
