It’s a very special night tonight for two reasons – First, it’s The Oscars! And secondly, it’s the website 7th anniversary which is very exciting! If you’d like to see our first post, click here or how the website used to look back then, click here. We’ve surely come a long way!
But in more interesting news, a very smiley albeit nervous Eddie has appeared on the 87th Annual Academy Awards red carpet looking dapper in a navy and black McQueen tuxedo! I have added the first pictures to the gallery. I’ll of course be updating and adding more throughout this very special night so make sure to keep checking back!
Wishing Eddie the best luck and sending him positive vibes from across the pond! We’re keeping our fingers crossed so that he brings the best actor award home.
In the run up to Sunday’s Academy Awards, People Magazine have released a series of videos with the Oscar contenders talking about what inspired them to get into acting. You can watch Eddie playing the piano in this video titled “As if you didn’t love Eddie Redmayne enough already”. Enjoy!
Yahoo Style have published an interview with Eddie and Felicity in which they talk about Hollywood fame, the Oscars and their roles of a lifetime in “The Theory of Everything”. The feature is accompanied by some lovely portraits of the on-screen couple.
“Whenever I’m in L.A., I’m always either an hour late or two hours early,” Eddie Redmayne says as he sits down at a table at the Los Angeles bistro Republique. “I can’t get anywhere on time.” The actor and his cast mate Felicity Jones are attending a party hosted by Yahoo Style celebrating their film The Theory of Everything, which has been nominated for an Oscar for best picture. Redmayne, who is quickly plowing through a large plate of hors d’oeuvres and a small basket of French fries, still hasn’t quite settled into his new role as Hollywood celebrity.
“Does anyone ever feel comfortable in it?” he asks. “How am I doing?” He’s told he looks perplexed. “Yeah,” says the 33-year-old actor. “I am. I’m not going to lie.”
Eddie is back in London ahead of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards which are taking place today and he is up for the Best Actor category. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for Eddie! Yesterday he attended the nominees party at Kensington Palace with wife Hannah, you can now find the pictures from the event in the gallery. Enjoy!
I have added the scans of Eddie in the February issue of GQ Australia. Make sure to take a look and read the interview as it is a good read. Enjoy!
“When you start as an actor everyone tells you what the odds of success are. So when you’re lucky enough to get a job, it’s amazing, but it’s bred into you that you’ll never get another one. And that feeling never goes away. It’s funny, I recently read an article with Rachel Weisz, and she was saying ‘You think you’re never going to get another job’ and I was like, oh c’mon, you’re Rachel Weisz.”
Eddie appeared on Conan on Tuesday and if you missed it, don’t fret because you can watch some of the best bits from his interview online. One of the highlights is when they showed an image of him as Viola in an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and pointed out an uncanny resemblance to Jennifer Garner and it’s no surprise since the director of the production had described Eddie as “quite troublingly beautiful“. You can watch the video below!
Eddie is part of the group of talent to be featured on the iconic three-panel foldout Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue Cover photographed by Annie Leibovitz. The cover features some incredible talent like Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, David Oyelowo, Oscar Isaac, Sienna Miller, Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie’s co-star in “The Theory of Everything” Felicity Jones. You can now find the cover in glorious HQ quality in our gallery along with some behind the scenes pictures from the shoot where you can see Eddie enjoying some iced tea and playing ping pong.
