Emma Thompson keeps her two Oscars in her bathroom because she is embarrassed to show them off in a more prominent position in her home.

The 46-year-old won the Best Actress Academy Award in 1993 for her role in Howards End and a Best Screenplay statuette for her 1996 SENSE AND SENSIBILITY script, adapted from JANE AUSTEN's classic novel.

She says, "They look far too outre anywhere else. They're great big, gold, shiny things. They're up there tarnishing quietly along with everything else I own, including my body."
