As you may be aware Eddie’s 35th Birthday is this week. In honor of Eddie we ask that to give to the Motor Neurone Disease Association of the UK in his name. This work is important to him and your gift could go a long way to helping in this work.
“The best birthday gift you can offer me is to share in my involvement with the MND Association in whatever way you can, to help work toward a deeper understanding of — and ultimately a cure for — this brutal disease.
Two fans will be randomly chosen to receive two autographed items — a signed Newt Scamander Funko Pop doll and a lifesized cardboard cutout of Eddie.
Please go visit the Just Giving page that our friend Charlotte set up for this purpose and give to this great work.
Eddie Redmayne told GQ what he really thinks about JK Rowling and the five Fantastic Beasts movies, revealed the challenges of dressing as a colourblind man (beware green suits!) and talked about his favourite watch as a child as he hosts a dinner to launch the new Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar
Have you always worn a watch?
I have, as a kid I was obsessed with Flik Flak, which was my first watch. But I could actually sing you the ad. [sings] Flik Flaks, they’re water resistant, Flik Flaks, they’re shock resistant!
You could change the bit in the middle, they cost £15, I remember. And then I got into Swatches, and I was weirdly into the Swatch skins, and they’re super thin. And then my dad always had an Omega deVille, a very old classic. It was gold with a leather strap. And so when I graduated to being a grown-up I owned other watches.
I’m wearing the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar, which is the new model. I’ve been wearing the Globemaster for about a year and a half and this one has the calendar-y bits on the side, which is all new. You only have to change the date once a year, on the 29th of February.
How do you pair your watch with your outfit?
Generally I wear quite muted colours, so I have this one and I have a Globemaster without the calendar which is blue faced. I’m colourblind so in my own life I tend to wear blues, greys, and keep it to muted tones that I know are the right colour. So I went for the blue watch face, and the grey one here, so that it tends not to clash, it works with everything.
What’s it like being colourblind?
It’s weird when you try and describe colourblindness to people. Because they’re like, “what, red-green?”, and you’re like, “yes”, blues and purples I confuse. I go for greys and browns, and no, I don’t see in black and white, you actually see in colour, it’s just confusion of colour.
I almost feel like a bit of a fraud when I say I’m colourblind, because I see in colour. [I have problems when], for example, I’m shooting a scene, and you have to hit a mark on the floor, and it’s a red marker on green grass. With my peripheral vision I haven’t got a chance. If I look down I can see the difference between the red and the green, but I don’t know how to explain it to people.Continue Reading
Last night Eddie attended the OMEGA Globemaster Annual Calendar Dinner as their ambassador. Is everyone loving the appearance of the velvet suit? It was designed by Ralph Lauren.
Thanks to the talents of Claudia from Never Enough Design we have a new theme at Eddie Redmayne Web featuring the beautiful photoshoot Eddie did recently for Rhapsody Magazine.
People did a highlight of Eddie being honored by Queen Elizabeth.
Queen Elizabeth cast her spell on Friday when she honored Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne.
The Fantastic Beasts actor , 34, was welcomed at Windsor Castle to receive his Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire award (OBE), given for his services to drama.
Dapper in a black tailcoat and striped pants, he attended the ceremony with his parents and his wife Hannah.
The castle will be very familiar to him. It is a short walk from Eton College, where he went to school alongside the Queen’s grandson, Prince William.
“She was asking me whether I prefer film or theater, and asked me if I enjoyed it,” he told reporters of his exchange with the monarch.
“I’m very lucky to do something I am passionate about,” he added. “I’m very grateful to do something I love, because it is a rare thing.”
He called the honor “extraordinary,” adding, “it is something that I had never thought of and it was never in my wildest imagination . . . the whole experience is incredibly humbling, and also getting to be in Windsor Castle is breathtaking, around Christmas as well with all the decorations.”
He also spoke about his baby daughter Iris, who was born in June.
Noting that he is going to take a “little break” over the holidays and “eat a lot of ham,” he said he found it “wonderful” being a parent: “Except [Iris] does have the habit of knowing when you have a big day, like today.
“And she was up until four in the morning, so both my wife and I came today with matchsticks under our eyes. Other than that she is on cracking form.”
This past weekend Eddie was honored by receiving an OBE from Queen Elizabeth. Congratulations Eddie!
Yesterday Eddie & Hannah attended Emilia Wickstead Christmas Cocktail Party and ran into Tom Hooper.
