Eddie Redmayne Ditched His iPhone for a Brief Period of Time
The 34-year-old actor and his wife attended the 2016 Golden Globes the evening before.
Eddie recently told The Independent that he ditched his iPhone recently for an older phone to keep him more in the moment.
“I tried switching back to a simple, old-fashioned handset in place of a smartphone,” Eddie said. “It was a reaction against being glued permanently to my iPhone during waking hours. The deluge of emails was constant and I found myself trying to keep up in real time, at the expense of living in the moment.”
However, he found he had to switch back.
“I was tied to my laptop answering emails for two hours first thing every morning and last thing at night instead, which was a different kind of intrusion. I wasn’t very popular with [his wife] Hannah, so today I’m back on my iPhone and trying to master a healthier relationship with it,” Eddie added.
