Eddie is one of the men included in People’s 2014 Sexiest Men Alive Issue! I love Eddie’s reaction to his inclusion.

“I think you’ve made a wild mistake,” the 32-year-old claims about his inclusion in the Sexiest Man Alive issue. “I have three brothers and a sister and so I’ve been continually teased all my life. I’m sure this will merely encourage more. Thank you PEOPLE for giving them more fodder.” Hey, anything we can do to help.

November 18, 2014   Ali   Theory of Everything, Video Comments Off on Stephen Hawking Visits ‘The Theory of Everything’ Set

MovieFone shares this great video about when Stephen Hawking visited the set of the film The Theory of Everything.

Making a biopic about still-living people is nerve-wracking stuff, according to the cast and crew of “The Theory of Everything,” which tells the story of Stephen Hawking and his wife, Jane Wilde. But when the subjects of the film come to visit the set, the stakes are even higher.

A new featurette about “Theory,” premiering today exclusively on Moviefone, depicts just such an occasion, when Hawking and Wilde stopped by the Cambridge shoot to watch the filming of the key May Ball scene.

“It was the most surreal experience,” says Felicity Jones, who plays Wilde in the film, about seeing the real-life couple on set while delivering her lines. Co-star Eddie Redmayne, who plays Hawking, put it more bluntly, saying he felt “great trepidation” about the experience, but also “wonderful pride” knowing Hawking was watching them work.

For his part, Hawking was quite pleased with “Theory,” noting that he was “quite surprised” that a film would be made about him, and praising the “extraordinary” May Ball scene in particular.

November 18, 2014   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Theory of Everything Comments Off on Stephen Hawking on Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything biopic: ‘At times I thought he was me’

What a great compliment to Eddie from Mr. Stephen Hawking! This article is from The Independent!

Stephen Hawking has said he was so impressed with Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of him on the big screen that at times he mistook the actor for himself.

Hawking has praised Redmayne’s performance in the forthcoming biopic The Theory Of Everything, which follows the renowned scientist’s life from his days as a PhD student to being honoured by the Queen in 1989.

“I thought Eddie Redmayne portrayed me very well. At times I thought he was me. I think Eddie’s commitment will have a big emotional impact,” said the physicist, who shed a tear when he first saw the film.

Redmayne has admitted that he was daunted by the prospect of playing the eminent scientist, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 21.

The actor said he did not know Hawking had been “entirely healthy” as a young man before reading the script, but described the process of preparing for the role as “riveting”.

Redmayne met with specialists to analyse photographs of Hawking and see how motor neurone disease manifested itself in the scientist’s body. He later worked with a choreographer to perfect Hawking’s movements.

The film, which is based on Hawking’s ex-wife Jane Wilde’s memoir A Life with Stephen, tells the story of the young couple, who fell in love while studying at Cambridge University in the Sixties.

Wilde, who is portrayed by Felicity Jones in the film, remains determined to marry the young Hawking despite being told by doctors that he only has two years to live.

The couple went on to have three children together, but later divorced in 1995.

The Theory of Everything is released in the UK on 1 January following its current release in the US in order to qualify for an Oscar nomination.

November 17, 2014   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Relationships & Family Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne Talks Wedding Planning: “I Can’t Wait to Be Married!”

As we know the wedding of Eddie to his fiance Hannah are coming soon … and Eddie has talked with E!Online about the upcoming nuptials and the planning.

It sounds like Eddie Redmayne will soon be a married man!

The 32-year-old actor, who got engaged to fiancée Hannah Bagshawe back in June, tells E! News he’s currently in major wedding planning mode.

“We are in the midst of it all now,” the Brit star told E! News on Friday at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards. “The plan is a winter wedding. We’re in the thick of that at the moment…We’re doing our best.”

As for juggling both wedding planning and awards season with his critically acclaimed movie The Theory of Everything, Redmayne laughed, “Priorities! We’ve planned this long in advance. It’s the most wonderful thing.”

And Redmayne is definitely excited to tie the knot! “I’m desperate. I’m jumping at the bit,” he gushed. “I can’t wait to be married.”

Redmayne also gushed about all the Oscar buzz his performance as Stephen Hawking is getting. “I try and literally put one foot in front of the other,” he said of navigating all the upcoming awards shows. “The fact that people seem to be excited about the movie, that just means the world.”

Redmayne also revealed where the term Redmayniacs (the name given to his fans) originated.

“I did an interview a few years ago with The Guardian in England and I think the journalist was talking about the Cumberbitches, Benedict’s fans,” he dished. “And then she decided to name my fans that. I don’t know whether it’s an official title. They seem like lovely people, they don’t seem like maniacs at all.”

November 17, 2014   Ali   Articles & Interviews Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne Reveals His Dream Superhero Role

Eddie Redmayne is considered by many to be the frontrunner for the Best Actor Oscar, thanks to his remarkable performance as legendary scientist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. But given the film industry’s ever-increasing reliance on big budget blockbusters, the 32-year-old Brit is keenly aware that staying on the A-list now requires one to be part of a massive tent pole franchise — and he knows exactly which spandex-clad superhero he’d like to play.

“Please, I’m desperate to do Bananaman,” Redmayne told Yahoo Movies recently, revealing his love for the early ’80s British cartoon.

“Bananaman is this great guy who eats a banana, and he becomes Bananaman,” Redmayne explained earnestly. “He’s the one that I’ve always wanted to play, to the extent that Andrew Garfield — an old pal — was asked in an interview, ‘If you could play any superhero other than Spider-Man, who would you play?’ And he was thinking about it, and the interviewer was like, ‘Bananaman?’ And Andrew was like, ‘No, Eddie’s playing that.’”

When Yahoo Movies pulled up a clip from the show on YouTube, Redmayne was suddenly concerned. “I’d have to do some serious working out,” he worried, commenting on the goofy hero’s physique. “Shit. Maybe I’m not destined to be Bananaman.”

On the bright side, Redmayne said, they’d never make a movie about such a silly, forgotten character — or so he thought.

Sadly, he underestimated the desperation that movie studios have for pre-established intellectual property: Bananaman is already in production, with an animated film to be released in 2015, though no cast or director has been announced. So unless he was teasing his own participation, it looks like Redmayne may have to wait for the sequel.

On the bright side, his second choice for a big-screen franchise series — Thundercats — is still available. So far, the ’80s animated series, which was rebooted in recent years, has yet to be put into development for the big screen. That may change soon, however, given that Redmayne’s Jupiter Ascending co-star Channing Tatum also told Yahoo Movies that he’s a Thundercats fan.

Still, should the movie go forward, the two actors may have to go to the mat when it comes to casting, as Redmayne already has his eyes one of the series’ most beloved characters. “I’d like to play Snarf,” he says. Looks like he’ll have to start working on his facial hair a bit.

November 17, 2014   Ali   Magazines, Video Comments Off on Eddie covers Elle UK

Excited to share that Eddie will be on the cover of the January issue of Elle UK Magazine! You can grab your copy starting December 4th.

Hot on the heels of our December issue collector cover with Benedict Cumberbatch, we are thrilled to present our limited edition January issue cover star, one Mr Eddie Redmayne. It goes on sale December 4th, but you can buy it here NOW, and get it delivered to your door anywhere in the world (we’re nice that way).

The lovely Mr Redmayne threw some very interesting shapes in front of the camera. He was equally candid in the interview, talking about acting, love, pouting (“I read a review recently that said, ‘Who knew Eddie Redmayne was more than just a pout?’ You think, ‘Nice you’ve recognised that, but at the same time that’s 10 years of work you’ve just dismissed as pouting'”) and his secret boyband past.

And he made us laugh – a lot. Not least in this Word Games film – referencing a small, potentially vicious animal, Tom Hiddleston and Emma Watson.

Next year you can catch Eddie as a latex-clad villain in sci-fi extraveganza Jupiter Ascending. But first up is his extraordinary, heartbreaking and uplifting portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything (on playing Hawking after great mate Benedict Cumberbatch Eddie said: “I’d heard Ben’s performance was extraordinary so I decided not to watch it because I’d have been tempted to steal from it”). Check out the trailer – it will remind you again why all those celebrities did the ALS challenge earlier this year

The Theory of Everything opens on January 1st.

November 15, 2014   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Images, Magazines Comments Off on Eddie Covers L’Uomo Vogue

Eddie is on the cover of one of three covers of the November issue of L’Uomo Vogue.

Eddie Redmayne decides to sit at a secluded table, out of sight from curious onlookers, for our chat. He’s relaxed, however, because he feels right at home at the exclusive Sunset Towers of West Hollywood. “You see, when I arrived in Los Angeles and no one knew me, they treated me like one of them here. That’s why I keep coming back». The smiling waiters hover around him, but it isn’t hard to smile at this thirty-two-year-old London actor: he welcomes you with spontaneity and friendliness and you immediately forget that you’re at a business dinner to talk about his latest film, The theory of everything, the story of famous astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who was relegated to a wheelchair from the age of twenty-two.

“I had to fight for the role of Hawking because I really wanted to work with James Marsh. I loved his brilliant Oscar-winning documentary Man of Wire, but he didn’t know if I could handle such a ‘physical’ role. I like to take on roles that are a bit like jumping off a cliff: as a matter of fact, I’m only interested in those types of roles”.

Such passion is rewarding: in The Theory of Everything, his performance as Hawking thrilled critics, who compared him to Daniel Day-Lewis in My Left Foot. The producers of Focus Features are already in a state of agitation as they await inevitable pre-Oscar notices.

After all, Redmayne has all the right stuff: a solid theatrical background like many British actors (Twelfth Night, The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? by Edward Albee), a series of indie films with eclectic and very different roles, a successful debut on Broadway (in Red, in which he was the assistant of Mark Rothko/Alfred Molina, who won a Tony Award), and finally a successful mini-series, The Pillars of the Earth, based on a Ken Follett best-seller. All he needed was a blockbuster, but with the role of Marius, the singing revolutionary ofLes Misérables, the actor also brilliantly filled that gap (433 million dollars earned at the box office). And before I forget, he has shared the stage with the most prestigious actresses and stars: Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart, Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Williams and Angelina Jolie adore him.

Wearing a red, white and blue plaid shirt and jeans, composed and at ease, he converses amiably: he’s calm and confident and he isn’t eager to make an impression on his interviewer. He still has the same curious and educated behavior since the first time I met him back in 2007 on Main Street in Park City at the Sundance Festival. He was there with two films, Savage Grace, an incestuous drama with Julianne Moore (he was the narcissistic heir of a declining dynasty of the international jet set) and “The Yellow Handkerchief” with Kristen Stewart. It was snowing and Ms. Stewart stopped me on the street to introduce him, “Remember him! He’s going to be famous soon, you’ll see!”, she insisted, laughing.

With that delicate adolescent face, red hair, golden freckles, blue eyes, and attractive mouth, Redmayne already had eye-catching allure. Plus, he had studied at Eton, which was the alma mater of Percy Shelley, George Orwell, Ian Fleming and, more recently, Prince William. He received a degree in Art History from Trinity College in Cambridge. Today, “jumping off a cliff” is an expression that the actor often repeats when he describes the choices of his films. At age 32, he’s attracted to directors with a strong personal vision and by complex roles that have little to do with his real life. That’s why he wanted to act in Jupiter Ascending, the sci-fi drama by Lana and Andy Wachowski, the directors of Matrix and Cloud Atlas, which we will see next year. “These two filmmakers have such an extraordinary, wild imagination that they take you to another dimension. I adore Lana: she’s one of the most brilliant creatures I’ve ever met. She’s the reason I also decided to portray the transgender character of Einar Wegener in The Danish Girl.

The film, which Redmayne will start shooting in the near future, is the real story of the transsexual artist Einar Wegener and his Californian wife Gerda. “It’s an extraordinary love story: Einar started occasionally wearing women’s clothes and posing for her and in the end, he went through gender reassignment and became a woman with the name of Lili Elbe”. Redmayne certainly enjoys approaching different worlds: he has always lived in London, but he loves Los Angeles. “When I arrived here for the first time around ten years ago with Jamie Dornan (who will soon be seen in 50 Shades of Grey) and Andrew Garfield (“Spider-Man”), we felt like extra-terrestrials. On top of that, we’d go to extraordinary events but we struggled to find rent money. So, between auditions, we became great friends and I learned to love this city, which is diametrically opposite of London and never fully reveals itself”.

Redmayne talks about everything: friendship and love, his charity projects and his idea of elegance. He speaks glowingly about his fiancée Hannah Bagshawe. “We’ve known each other since we were 15 years old, and it took 15 more years for a different relationship to emerge. Hannah is a special woman and it’s a huge thing that she has agreed to marry me”. Is the wedding soon? “In the winter”, he answers and smiles but says no more. With such a personal style, what does he consider elegant? “You can’t pretend to be elegant: it’s innate”. Among actors and masters of style, he names Ralph Fiennes. “Ralph is incredibly chic. He has poise and always thinks before he speaks. My role model, however, is my father: he’s impeccable without fuss and he has natural style”. He finds Kristin Scott Thomas, Marion Cotillard, his mother, and his fiancée Hannah to be elegant. Two hours have flown by: after eating tartare and chicken, Eddie accompanies me to the car and while he cordially says goodbye, a blonde woman stops and compliments him. She saw him in Red on Broadway. «Please return to the stage: you’re fantastic», she says. Slightly embarrassed, he thanks her and then he casts a sidelong glance towards me as he holds a book in his hand. “But now I’m going to my room to read…”. By the way, the check vanished from the table as if by magic. In my many years of interviews, Redmayne is only the second actor to have offered me dinner. The first was Diane Keaton, many years ago. Speaking of class…
