Eddie Redmayne's 10 Years of Acting Get Dismissed By Reporter with One Quote
Here’s what the 32-year-old The Theory of Everything actor had to share with the mag:
On playing Stephen Hawking after good friend Benedict Cumberbatch: “I’d heard Ben’s performance was extraordinary so I decided not to watch it because I’d have been tempted to steal from it.”
On being a model turned actor: “I read a review recently that said, ‘Who knew Eddie Redmayne was more than just a pout?’ You think, ‘Nice you’ve recognised that, but at the same time that’s 10 years of work you’ve just dismissed as pouting.’”
The full interview appears in the January issue of Elle UK, on newsstands December 4. It’s also available as a digital edition!
