Comments Off on Movie Stars Read Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live
Ali

I love Eddie’s response to his! ROTFL! His part is right about 47 seconds.

The Oscar ceremony is a magical night on which starving movie stars experience joy and sorrow live for all to see. While awards shows are a place where accolades are lavished upon the talented men and women of film, Twitter is kind of the opposite. For your inconsideration we present a special movie star edition of #MeanTweets featuring Christoph Waltz, Patricia Arquette, George Clooney, Jessica Chastain, Eddie Redmayne, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, Emily Blunt, Zach Galifianakis, Kevin Hart, Richard Dreyfuss, Cate Blanchett, Seth Rogen, Oscar Isaac, Taraji P. Henson and Sean Penn.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne: ‘Getting married was the most wonderful thing I’ve done’
Ali

Eddie did this wonderful interview with The Telegraph and it is a beautiful article. He talks about the joy of being married to Hannah, his role in The Danish Girl, and how lucky he feels to be doing what he does! (Plus if you click on the image below you can see a new photoshoot done for this article!)

Eddie Redmayne’s acclaimed performance as a transgender pioneer has put him in the running for a second consecutive Oscar… and with a starring role in the new Harry Potter spin-off, and a baby on the way, the actor is having a golden moment

Eddie Redmayne has a reputation for being one of the nicest actors in the business. Alicia Vikander, his co-star in The Danish Girl, has said he is ‘the most sweet, gentle human being ever’; Tom Hooper, the film’s director, thinks Redmayne is ‘Hugh Jackman-level nice’.

I have interviewed him once before and, charmingly, he remembers this, but he doesn’t recall quite when it was. I tell him it was in 2009, he was on stage at the Donmar Warehouse opposite Alfred Molina in the sensational two-hander about Mark Rothko’s Seagram murals, and he jumps out of his seat. ‘Red. Awww, I loved Red,’ he says. ‘2009! It feels like only yesterday. Doesn’t it feel like yesterday?’

This is probably because he has been rather busy in the intervening years. He won an Olivier for his performance in Red. It transferred to Broadway and he won a Tony. In 2011 he starred with Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn, based on the true story of Colin Clark, a young production assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl who struck up an unlikely friendship with Marilyn Monroe. The same year Redmayne was back on stage at the Donmar as Richard II, for which he won Best Shake­spearean Performance at the Critics’ Circle Awards.

He then played Stephen Wraysford, the protagonist in the BBC adaptation of Sebastian Faulks’s Birdsong, and Marius in Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Les Misérables. He got married at the end of 2014 – ‘The most wonderful thing I’ve done’ – and last February, of course, he won an Oscar – ‘That was extraordinary’ – for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Things have not calmed down. When I meet him he is three months into filming JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the spin-off from the Harry Potter stable, inspired by the book of the same name that appears in the Potter novels about the magizoologist Newt Scamander. Inhabiting this wizarding world has meant long days and many shoots with 5am finishes at Leavesden studios in Watford. At the same time he is promoting The Danish Girl, in which he plays the transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, with Vikander as his wife, the artist Gerda Wegener. Redmayne was nominated for a Bafta, and is up for another Oscar.

‘Going to the Oscars is always the most sensory overload and a huge amount of fun,’ says Redmayne. ‘I feel excited just to be invited to the party, frankly.’ He thinks Leonardo DiCaprio is ‘definitely going to win and should’ – and recalls an audition he had with DiCaprio early in his career. ‘One of my first ever auditions for an American film [The Good Shepherd] was with Leonardo DiCaprio,’ he says. ‘We had about 15 minutes and it was pretty inspiring. In the end Matt Damon played his part. So for me to be considered in the group of nominees, with Damon, DiCaprio, Michael Fass­bender and Bryan Cranston… it feels amazing.’

He says he is having a lot of fun on Fantastic Beasts. Directed by David Yates (who made the final four Harry Potter films), the cast includes Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton and Colin Farrell. The film is set 70 years before the Harry Potter story begins, in New York, where Newt Scamander is attending the Magical Congress of the United States of America, following his world travels to find magical creatures.

‘What has been so great about this one is seeing a bigger budget being used,’ he says. ‘Every single head of department on this film is at the top of their game so they use that to the most extraordinary effect. The other day I was looking down at a set they have built, New York streets in the 1920s, and as far as your eye can see are cars, smoke machines, extras… It feels like going back to, and maybe we romanticise it, but a golden age of Hollywood with this huge scale of things.’

Among all this he recently announced his role as a global ambassador for Omega. It is a company he has long known about because his father has always worn an Omega watch (‘my dad is my style icon’) so it felt serendipitous when he was approached to represent the brand.

In typical Redmayne fashion, he enthuses as much about this role as any of his stage or screen parts. ‘I am fascinated by Omega’s history,’ he says. ‘Particularly the First World War stuff, when they made watches for the flying corps, and the Nasa side of it.’ Buzz Aldrin wore Omega’s Speedmaster (aka Moonwatch) when he stepped on to the lunar surface in 1969. It remains one of only a handful of watches sanctioned by Nasa for space flight.

At 34, Redmayne is, it hardly need be said, a very good-looking man. GQ’s Best-Dressed Man of 2016 is today wearing a teal-green Gucci jumper, slim-legged trousers and Veja trainers. He looks wholesome, too – there is not a trace of tiredness on his face despite the late nights on a film set and day trips across the Atlantic to promote The Danish Girl. He says he doesn’t subscribe to a particularly wholesome way of living (‘nothing makes me more happy than being in Pizza Express. Those pizzas are unrivalled’).

So he has inherited good genes. But what interests him is where he got his acting ability. ‘Everyone else in my family does proper jobs,’ he says. His father works in the City, his mother is now retired but ran a relocation business. He is the second youngest of five (two brothers, one half-brother, one half-sister) and the other siblings are variously City workers, a chartered surveyor and the CEO of HarperCollins UK.

Comments Off on Alicia Vikander Reveals the Advice Eddie Redmayne Gave Her on Handling Her Newfound Fame
Ali

Alicia Vikander may be new to the red carpet, but she’s handling her Hollywood “It girl” status with grace, thanks to some advice to from her co-star in The Danish Girl, Eddie Redmayne. “I’m still trying to get used to it,” she told reporters at the Oscars Nominee Luncheon on Monday. “Just promoting the films to start with, the beginning of last year, was totally new to me.”

Vikander may not have had to experience doing press until after filming wrapped, but she got a firsthand look at how Redmayne handled his fame. “When we were shooting last year, he was in the mix of doing all this. I think I wondered like, ‘How do you keep your head straight and you have to fly out each weekend to L.A. and do interviews?’” she said. The actor’s advice was genius, reminding Vikander that while his schedule is busy, he’s lucky to be doing what he’s doing.

“He said try to enjoy it, because it is pretty wonderful, and that’s actually what I’m trying to do.” It looks like his advice paid off, as Vikander is simultaneously shooting the new Bourne sequel and handling awards season like a pro.

Comments Off on Actor Eddie Redmayne comes with his own briefcase
Ali

Eddie spoke to The Pottermore Correspondent about the first time he met David Yates, the director of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and how he had his very own briefcase like Newt.

‘This is actually slightly embarrassing…’

Eddie Redmayne is sheepishly telling me the story of meeting Fantastic Beasts director David Yates for the first time. There’s a broad, bright smile on his freckled face as he does.

Eddie has a case. A tan leather case just like the one his character Newt Scamander keeps his beasts in. It’s the first thing I notice, sitting by Eddie’s feet. He notices me notice it and I say, ‘Is that an Eddie case… or a Newt case?’

‘It’s an Eddie case,’ he says, patting it fondly.

‘I’ve had it for about eight years. My dad works in the city and has always had a briefcase. I always did this acting thing for a living, which didn’t feel like a proper job and I wanted something that made me feel like I was doing a proper job and so I got this case. I use it whenever I go on set. I keep my script and whatever mementos I find useful in it.’

He clears his throat gently, as a little chortle escapes his lips. ‘So when David and I had our first meeting about this movie I had this case with me. We met in a pub in Soho and sat down by a roaring fire. As he started telling me about Newt and the basic plot of this film – which included Newt having a magic case – I said, “I promise I didn’t know about Newt’s case. I didn’t bring this as some sort of weird method audition – like, don’t worry David, I come with my own case!” And I’m afraid it’s still here, it’s still got my life in it. Not quite as much as Newt has in his case, though…’

It wasn’t just the briefcase-shaped omen that convinced Eddie to take this role. It was the great respect he has for J.K. Rowling and David Yates (and Harry Potter for that matter, but we’ll get to that another time).

‘David has such a lovely manner and this incredible kindness to him. There was no question I wanted to do this movie. For me, it was a question of whether I’d get the gig. When I read J.K. Rowling’s script, I just had my mind blown. I was so excited by it. The amazing thing was that I found it funny, I found it a thriller, I found it romantic. At the end, I was deeply moved by it.’
