Eddie Redmayne Says He Could Have Played Christian Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
Here’s what the 32-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On author E.L. James saying no to him for Fifty Shades of Grey: “She took to her Twitter feed to go, ‘Under no circumstances!’ I was like, all right, all right! Am I that bad? I can put a whip in my hand. I can get all kinky, can’t I? Apparently not.”
Kristen Stewart, on her The Yellow Handkerchief co-star: “We had a great time together. This is not a word I use a lot, but it describes him perfectly. He is a f–king lovely man. And he’s astounding as an actor. He’s the type of actor, and guy, you want to go on an adventure with.”
On auditioning in LA before he was famous: “You’d come over for a month. We used to go to the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood, and split a sandwich between us because that meant we could get cheaper parking. We’d swim and play table tennis for hours. We were staying on friend’s agents’ floors, and renting places together I’d be driving the cheapest rental car. But then you’d get to turn up at the CAA party. All these huge limos would arrive. I’d be in this red blob.”
