Emma Thompson's daughter wants to be a waitress.

The actress - who has 10-year-old Gaia and 22-year-old adopted son Tindyebwa with her actor husband Greg Wise - landed her youngest child a small role as an extra in her new movie 'Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang', but insists her daughter has no plans to follow in her parents' footsteps.

She said: "She wants to be a waitress and an artist... acting as a job? So unimpressed!"

Before Emma met Greg he dated fellow British star Kate Winslet, but their romance failed to blossom because they had such different music tastes.

Emma explained to UK TV talk show host Jonathan Ross: "They met on the set of 'Sense and Sensibility'. He was told you're going to meet your future partner... so he courted Kate for weeks, took her to Glastonbury. She didn't take to it because she's a mod and he's a hippy - it didn't work out so it turned out to be me!"
