London, May 25 (ANI): Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson, whose forthcoming film ‘Last Chance Harvey’ centres on a riotous wedding, has more fun attending funerals.

The 50-year-old actress, who married her second husband/actor Greg Wise in 2003, says that weddings are miserable.

“I have never known a wedding where the bride and the groom aren’t sitting there fretting about who’s been invited and who’s not,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

“Funerals are not necessarily depressing. I have been to a lot and, generally, they are more cheerful than the weddings I’ve been to. I mean it.

“Funerals can be really fantastic, as people who have not seen each other for a long time come together,” she added. (ANI)
