January 10, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Family, Video Comments Off on Jennifer Lawrence Finds Out Eddie Redmayne Is Going to Be a Dad

LOVE this! First, Eddie & Hannah confirm to E!Online that they are indeed expecting and during the interview Jennifer Lawrence overhears and gets super excited!

Eddie Redmayne has another big congratulations coming to him: From none other than Jennifer Lawrence!

The Danish Girl star confirmed to E! News that he’s expecting a baby with wife Hannah Bagshawe, and that kicked off a few celebrations. First, Ryan Seacrest and the E! red carpet team presented the happy couple with some adorable (if we do say so ourselves) onesies, with phrases like “You should see my crib” and “Milking it” emblazoned across the front. Naturally Redmayne and Bagshawe were smitten with the gifts (again, if we do say so ourselves), and left the podium with onesies in hand and big smiles on their faces.

But that’s when the real fun started.

As Jennifer Lawrence approached for her own interview with Seacrest, E! News watched as she gave a heartfelt greeting to her pal Eddie—and the Danish Girl star held up his new baby duds with a huge grin.

As you can imagine, JLaw was flabbergasted, shouting “You guys are expecting?!”

Same, Jen, same.

(And, not surprisingly, Eddie gave a huge grin in response.)

January 7, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Danish Girl Comments Off on ‘Daunting’ role in The Danish Girl was an education for Eddie Redmayne

The Sunday Post shares this story about how learning for his role as Lili educated him!

EDDIE REDMAYNE could find himself in very exclusive company in a couple of months’ time.

Only two actors — Spencer Tracy and Tom Hanks — have ever won the Best Actor Oscar two years in a row, but Eddie’s given himself a chance of doing the same — even though he’s playing a woman.

The 33-year-old actor, who won the Academy Award last year for his performance as Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, takes the title role in The Danish Girl.

It’s the story of Lili Elbe, who found notoriety in the 1920s by becoming one of the first people in the world to undergo sex reassignment surgery.

Directed by Tom Hooper, Eddie first became aware of the story when the two were working together on Les Miserables.

“I was at the Les Misérables barricades, and Tom said: ‘I would like you to read something,’” recalls Eddie.

“Tom then got me the script and I sat down to read it, knowing nothing about it.

“I was profoundly moved, it blew my mind, and I wanted to be part of it.

“Was I daunted by it? Yes, I was, but I’m daunted by everything.

“But I have begun to realise that fear of not doing a character or a story justice is a galvanising thing — it pushes me forward and makes me work harder.”

Beginning in Copenhagen in 1926, we first meet Lili as artist Einar Wegener, in a loving marriage to Gerda (Alicia Vikander) and revered for landscape paintings.

Wife Gerda is also an artist and while working to make a deadline on a portrait, she asks her husband to fill in for a model by putting on a dress.

It’s a transformative moment, as Einar realises being Lili is an expression of her truest self, and begins living her life as a woman.

Despite society’s disapproval, Gerda stands by her woman, moving to Paris so she can fulfil her journey as a transgender pioneer.

“At its heart, it’s a love story and how, as a duo, you overcome the hurdles of life,” muses Eddie.

“It’s also dumbfounding, almost 100 years on from Lili, how little has progressed for what is a civil rights movement.

“There’s a huge amount of work to be done.

“Meeting people from the trans community and hearing about their lives and their realities made it very important to me to get this message out there.

“Every trans story is unique and individual but every single trans person I met talked about knowing, from their youth, that their assigned gender was different from their own identity.

“I started this experience being deeply ignorant.

“I didn’t realise that gender and sexuality were not related — I didn’t understand the notion of fluidity in both gender and sexuality.

“Every day, everything about the process was an education.

“The people I’ve met, and their experiences they have shared with me, have changed me. And I am so grateful for that.”

The Danish Girl is in cinemas now.

January 6, 2016   Ali   Eddie Comments Off on 10 of Parade’s Favorite Redmayne Quotes

In honor of Eddie’s birthday today Parade.com has done a compilation of their 10 favorite Eddie quotes!

Eddie Redmayne turns 34 on January 6. Last year, this gifted actor won an Oscar for playing Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. Now he’s getting raves and Oscar buzz for his portrayal of transgender Danish painter Einar Wegener who becomes Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. Even with all his success Redmayne has maintained a refreshing normalcy. We celebrate him with our favorite quotes.

“I draw and play the piano badly. But when I’m doing those things, I’m concentrating so hard there’s no room for worry. I find that onstage, too.”

“I do get stopped a bit now and then, but I can go to the supermarket and on the Tube without being noticed. It’s usually me that gets starstruck, especially by TV stars.”

“Learning lines is hard for me because I have the attention span of a 6-year-old. That’s why being on planes all the time is so useful—I’m forced to learn out of boredom.”

“I’m as voyeuristic and intrigued as the next person as to how celebrities live.”

“In England we have this saying about Marmite [a spread made from yeast extract]: people either love it or hate it. That’s like a lot of the movie work I’ve done. People either find it repulsive or find it really interesting and get engaged in it.”

“I was once interviewed and I was asked, like, who your first crush is…I loved The Lion King when I was younger and I had a weird obsession with Nala… look at her face. She’s so sweet and she can sing really well.”

“Listen, acting is not surgery, it’s entertainment. You’re doing something to hopefully move people, to make them laugh, to transport them. But actors are vulnerable, and the reason we’re vulnerable is that we’re always trying to recreate human behavior.”

“[On a plane recently] I fell asleep, and when I woke up the man next to me asked, ‘Excuse me, are you somebody important?’ I must have looked confused. He explained: ‘I’m asking because the stewardesses came over and were watching you sleep.’

“I go to the theater two or three times a week when I’m in London. Whereas I feel guilty going to the cinema in the middle of the afternoon.”

“Up there on the screen, we can all fly. But down here on earth, we need to be each other’s wings.”

W Magazine is featuring Eddie in their best performances issue and with it comes a beautiful new outtake.

Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl
“One of my first films was Savage Grace. Julianne Moore played my mother, with whom my character was having an incestuous relationship. Last year, there was an amazing moment at the Academy Awards when Julianne and 
I both won. We were euphoric, and she turned to me and said, ‘Now maybe people will go 
and see Savage Grace!’
