Emma Thompson got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last weekend. So, naturally, she celebrated with a pint and a pig. Naturally. Now, my love for Emma is unwavering. She may falter at times, but her heart is always unquestionably in the right place – even when she is talking smack about Audrey Hepburn. She is among those celebrities I put in my “I’d love to have a beer with” category. I mean, wouldn’t she be a blast at the bar? These are the folks whose big, magnificent brains and bubbly, radiant sense of fun make them the perfect candidates for a cocktail, or six.
Helen MirrenIf you think she is a saucy minx sober, just wait until you get a couple cocktails into her.
Wanda SykesMy only worry is I’d laugh so hard I’d pee my pants, especially after a few drinks.
Rachel MaddowI believe it’s a life goal to taste a drink mixed by the master.
Jane LynchThat stuff I said about Wanda, ditto.
Leisha HaileyAnd if she brought along Kate Moennig and Erin Daniels, all the better.
Hillary ClintonOh, Hill. I will buy you a drink anyplace, anytime, anywhere. Standing offer, forever.
