Eddie Redmayne & Brit Marling Cover 'W Magazine' April 2013
Here is what the 31-year-old Les Miserables actor and the 29-year-old The East actress, who are featured alongside Middle of Nowhere‘s Emayatzy Corinealdi, had to share with the mag:
Eddie on playing Angelina Jolie‘s son in The Good Shepherd: “I doubt it was my acting – I have my big lips to thank for getting cast.”
Eddie on playing Viola in an all male production of Twelfth Night during college: “I was a boy playing a girl playing a boy. I had to wear a whalebone corset. To this day, when actresses on set start whining to me about the pain of their corsets, I say, ‘I’ve been there. It’s not that bad.’”
Brit on her views of Hollywood: “People think Hollywood is anti-academic. But it doesn’t have to be. For The East, Zal and I spent a lot of time on the road, meeting anarchist groups and different kinds of self-organized communities. When I write or act, I always try to make sure that I’m not using fantasy to avoid doing homework. To come up with a genuine insight based on something real is not easy.”
Emayatzy on starring in festival hit Middle of Nowhere: “It was the opportunity I was waiting for. When I auditioned, I thought, ‘This is the reason I drove here 10 years ago.’”
