British GQ Style gives us some of Eddie’s new interview for their Spring/Summer issue.

Eddie Redmayne was, until recently, a rising star. And then he played physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything and established himself as one of the brightest in the Hollywood firmament. The Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner offers his theories about life, the universe, and, of course, everything. Here get an exclusive preview of Redmayne’s cover interview and shoot…

On noticing a shift in his fame:
“In London, the shift was just going on the underground and people pretending to be texting but then taking photos. But it’s never been extreme.”

On his upcoming role as Lili Elbe, the first person to undergo gender reassignment:
“I was actually offered The Danish Girl before Hawking… People go, ‘Oh are you doing this transformative thing?’ It’s not a concerted choice. I think it will be a unique experience.”

On discussing the role with trans director Lana Wachowski:
“There is so much I need to investigate… It’s a very famous story within the trans community. I spoke to Lana early on when I was thinking about doing it.”

On the roles he chooses:
“If your dream is to tell stories, interesting stories, play interesting people. That’s the bottom line. The people that I play have to be extraordinary.”
