Also available on the nbc app

In this Sunday Sitdown preview, actor Emma Thompson talks to Willie Geist about activism as a person in the limelight and how fame can be a “toxic state in the sense that it reduces your humanity rather than expanding it.” She adds, “The larger your presence in terms of fame is, the less human you will be seen and perceived and felt to be.”
