London, November 28 : Oscar-winning actress/scriptwriter Emma Thompson has added one more vocational skill to her list of abilities-she is qualified to serve wine.
The 48-year-old star participated in the Call My Wine Bluff celebrity wine tasting event and auction in Lincoln's Inn, London, in aid of the development charity ActionAid recently.
"I've done a course at Berry Bros and Rudd as a sommelier. So I'm now qualified to serve wine," the Daily Express quoted her as proudly saying.
Meanwhile, there are reports that Emma's latest film as a writer, based on the sexless marriage of Victorian art critic and writer John Ruskin, has got the go-ahead and will be filmed in Mallorca in March.
The film will be staring Emma's husband Greg Wise as Ruskin.
