Jennifer Lawrence and Eddie Redmayne stopped by this week’s THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW to discuss Redmayne’s early career in modelling as well as their slightly differing experiences after winning an Oscar. Check out clips from the appearance below!
Eddie Redmayne is going to be a father — news that puts the cherry on top of an amazing year.
Although the Oscar-winner and his wife Hannah have not announced the news themselves, a source close to Hannah confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple is expecting.
This will be baby number one for both.
The pair married last year and recently celebrated their anniversary. The Danish Girl actor gushed about married life in the new issue of PEOPLE.
“It’s been extraordinary. It’s been the most wonderful whirlwind,” Redmayne, 33, said. “I think saint might be the word. She is an absolute saint. And it’s a ride for both of us. It’s wonderful doing it with someone you love because you also have a second eye on it all.”
Redmayne also opened up about his plans to take some time off once he’s done filming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them; a decision that makes perfect sense with a baby some time next year.
“The plan is, after Fantastic Beasts ends in a couple of months’ time, to take a little time off and try to take it all in,” he said.
Eddie Redmayne stars as Scamander, and the film’s plot, set decades before the Harry Potter stories, has him visiting the Magical Congress of the United States of America. Things go awry when his creatures begin escaping from his magical briefcase. Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, and Ezra Miller also star.
Rowling wrote the script herself, the first time she’s handled screenplay duties. David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter movies, directs. And this is expected to be the first film in a new triology.
Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne has revealed he consulted his wife and mother before starring in “The Danish Girl”.
The 33-year-old actor stars opposite Alicia Vikander in the new pseudo-biographical drama movie, in which he plays Lili Elbe – one of the first known recipients of sex reassignment surgery, reported Femalefirst.
Redmayne has revealed he spoke to the female influences in his life, including his wife Hannah Bagshawe, before shooting the movie.
“When I was preparing for the role I wasn’t going, ‘Ooh, where’s my feminine side?’ It was just about finding out who this character was and finding that place inside me. It seems to me that the notions we’ve had until now of masculinity and femininity are almost antiquated these days.
“It used to be that if someone is sporty then they’re ‘masculine’ and if they like art they’re ‘feminine’, and I feel we’ve got a long way beyond that now. I certainly don’t see the world as being male and female in that way any more – I feel like there’s a whole spectrum of shades in there.
The British star is nominated for best actor in a drama for his performance as transgender artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, while DiCaprio received his 11th nod for his gruelling turn as Hugh Glass in revenge saga The Revenant.
The pair, who were also both nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards on Wednesday, are widely regarded as the favourites in the category and appear poised to secure Oscar nominations when they are announced next year.
