The smart blazer had button detailing on the lapels and the matching trousers had a wide-leg design and were worn with chunky white heels. 

The star – who plays Nancy Stokes in the film – wore her light tresses in her classic cropped style and opted for a natural makeup look complete with a slick of light pink lip. 

Meanwhile Daryl, 29, looked dapper in a blue suit jacket which he teamed with a silky black shirt and smart trousers.

The film follows Nancy, a widowed school teacher who hires a male escort (Daryl McCormack) for a date, hoping to experience an orgasm for the first time. 

The project saw Emma film one scene naked with her co-star Daryl which she admitted in January was ‘very challenging to be nude at 62’.

The film star revealed that she and co-star Daryl both rehearsed the scene fully nude, with Emma telling Entertainment Weekly: ‘We aren’t used to seeing untreated bodies on the screen.’

Adding that director Sophie Hyde also disrobed, she said: ‘Sophie, Daryl, and I rehearsed entirely nude and talked about our bodies, talked about our relationship with our bodies, drew them, discussed the things that we find difficult about, things we like about them, described one another’s bodies.’

‘It’s very challenging to be nude at 62. She stands in front of a mirror alone and she drops her robe,’ Emma said of her character, Nancy.

Speaking about the taboo topic of women’s bodies on Lorraine last week Emma said: ‘The human body is not honestly represented on screen, pretty much ever, and especially not in my industry.’

Emma added of her character: ‘She’s someone who has been widowed and it looking back at her life and thinking, ‘I’m not sure that I’ve ever experienced that essential part of my life’, or sexual pleasure of any kind.

‘She’s never had an orgasm – not even on her own.’

Emma then detailed that women had been ‘brainwashed’ about their bodies as she discussed the impact of societal expectations and dishonesty surrounding sex.

Emma continued: ‘I think we are quite dishonest about sex as a society, she [Nancy] has the courage to do it, but the reality of it is quite different.’

‘I’ve had conversations with men in their eighties who say, ‘A lot of my friends brag about having great sex, but I don’t think they are telling the truth.”

Emma revealed: ‘I don’t look in the mirror and if I do, I look away. We’re brainwashed from very early on to not see something that we can’t accept.

‘It has been industrialised, the human body is not honestly represented on screen, pretty much ever, and especially not in my industry.’

‘So, women’s pleasure is never at the top of anyone’s agenda and women don’t know how to own up to it or ask their partners.’

She told the publication: ‘When I’m looking in the mirror, I’m always trying to make myself look ‘better’ – turning this way or that, checking out my a**e, pulling something in. Simply revealing my utter incapacity to accept my body as it is. 

‘But in the movie, at that point, Nancy’s body has just given her these seconds of pure pleasure and she is marvelling at it – not ‘it’ as it looks, but ‘it’ as it has become to her. A place she can be happy. A place she can find genuine bliss,’ she shared.
