Eddie Redmayne did his homework for his role as transgender woman Lili Elbe in “The Danish Girl.”

“To prepare for this part, I read people’s stories, studied their art, collected their thoughts, met transgender communities in LA,” the 33-year-old Oscar winner told the New York Post. “I immersed myself in their lives and knew every transgender woman I could. I met their partners.”

“Everyone’s generosity in educating me was enormous,” he continued. “Very giving, they’d say, ‘No question I won’t answer in order to explain to you.'”

“This true story took place in 1920. No known predecessor or community then. Nobody could comprehend this,” Redmayne explained. “In the beginning, these ladies said they’d use too much makeup. Their clothes, like for a teenage girl, were too feminine.”

“All knew early they’d been born into some different-gender body and to unravel herself each tried to work out who they were,” he added. “Living as a man, they wore high starched collars, tailored suits, like some scaffolding of masculinity.”
