Thompson Delighted To Throw Cream Pie At Lansbury

British actress EMMA THOMPSON threw a pie at ANGELA LANSBURY's face during filming for new movie NANNY McPHEE - after fighting off competition from her castmates for the privilege.

The Academy Award-winner, who has spent almost 10 years bringing CHRISTIANNA BRAND's children's books to the big screen, launched the creamy confectionary at the MURDER SHE WROTE actress during a food fight scene - and was delighted by her marksmanship.

She says, "One of the scenes is an enormous food fight and somebody had to throw the pie at Angela.

"Every member of the cast wanted to do it because Angela is such a legend and what a great thing to be able to tell the grandchildren!

"But I told them I was pulling rank and, when the moment came, I got her right between the eyes - a beauty of a shot."
