Emma Thompson, 53, stuns with her incredible swimsuit shape as she attempts to play volleyball…. and with that figure who cares if she falls over

She gave a sneak peek on her beach body while shooting scenes yesterday but today Emma Thompson showed off the full extent of her incredible figure.
The 53-year-old actress had her enviable shape on display in a figure-hugging plum swimsuit to shoot a volleyball scene in Cannes.
Emma, who is currently filming Love Punch alongside Pierce Brosnan, didn't need to, but covered up her bottom half with a colourful sarong.

Still, her toned arms, flat stomach and trim legs were on show for all to see.
In fact, Emma even gave her much younger co-stars a run for their money in the shape stakes.
The actress was seen shooting a beach volleyball scene but her character failed to keep her balance on the pitch.

Emma was seen tumbling into the sands during the game and was left faced down on the beach.
But even then she still managed to look great with her long legs stretched out in the sand.
Emma's co-star Pierce was nowhere to be seen and instead she was shooting with French model and actress Louise Bourgeon who had donned a blue printed bikini and a pair of navy shorts.

But as she relaxed between scenes, she stripped her suit off to the waist and showed off a very trim and slender figure.
And while she may have looked comfortable, Emma appeared to be struggling with her wetsuit hood as she got ready for her scenes.

In a spot of bother: Emma struggled to put on her wetsuit hood as she got ready to shoot some more scenes
She also decided to take shade from the sun under a huge umbrella, even though the suit and hood guaranteed maximum coverage.
She was then snapped heading down to the water with Brosnan and Timothy Spall, who is also starring in the movie.
And if scenes from earlier this week are anything to go by, there's little doubt the film will be a comedy.

inner cowboy and was dressed in a black shirt with white piping, black
trousers, with a peculiar hat on top of his head.

retirement money that was stolen from them. It's slated for release next
