Colin Farrell Says He Once Gave 'Fantastic Beasts' Co-Star Eddie Redmayne a Back Massage!

Colin Farrell is opening up about a pretty hilarious secret involving his Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them co-star Eddie Redmayne!

The 40-year-old Irish actor recently revealed that he helped Eddie out with some stage fright at Comic-Con by giving him a back rub!

Eddie said Colin calmed his nerves by “giving me a back rub and whispering sweet nothings into my ear trying to calm me down. He definitely whispered. He gave me a pep talk, actually. I was really anxious and he sort of gently told me that everything was going to be fine.” (via People)

“I have no idea what I whispered in his ear, maybe, ‘How’s the pressure?’” Colin shared. “I do remember giving him a bit of a massage. He had to go in front of an audience of four or five thousand people at Comic-Con and do some some magic trick and get the audience all involved and he was s–ting himself.”

“I don’t remember whispering sweet nothings, I think he’s lying,” Colin added.

VIDEO: Eddie Redmayne Was Sorted into Hufflepuff, Defends His 'Harry Potter' House in a PSA!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne is as big of a Harry Potter fanatic as the rest of us and the house that he was sorted into is Hufflepuff, one that is often ridiculed among fans of the franchise!

The 34-year-old actor is defending the house in a funny new PSA that he created for MTV.

“For far too long now, Hufflepuffs have been victimized,” Eddie says in the clip while looking like he is going to cry. “They call us boring. They call us beige. They say we’re the nice guys. But you know what? You know what I see in Hufflepuffs? I see loyalty. I see fierce friendship. We are hardworking, we are compassionate, and at the end of the day, we’re going to do the right thing, and not because of the glory. Not because of the glory, but for the greater good.”

Eddie Redmayne Auditioned (& Didn't Get) This Role in 'Harry Potter' Films!

Eddie Redmayne is starring in this month’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them…but this wasn’t the first Harry Potter film he wanted to star in!

The 34-year-old actor revealed in a recent interview with USA Today that he originally auditioned for the original Harry Potter film series about 15 years ago for the role of Tom Riddle. If you don’t know, Tom is actually Lord Voldemort and the name “Tom Riddle” is the name he was given at birth.

“I think I got about three lines into my audition, and it was with the assistant to the assistant,” Eddie told the publication. Eddie also recently dished on his failed Star Wars audition.

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the role eventually went to actor Christian Coulson. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the role was played by Frank Dillane.
