Yesterday, the Golden Gate, today Eddie Redmayne in Chicago by Lenny Gilmore for Red Hot Magazine
"When she can take a holiday, she comes with me. Artistically, she’s very interested, too."
I had only done theatre, and I was doing this scene with [Toni Collette]…. After about an hour of filming she was like, “Ed, should we go on and watch the playback?” and I was like, “No, I’m not allowed. I was told I’m not allowed.” She’s like, “Come watch the playback.” I was like, “No, no, I’m really not allowed.” She was like “Come watch the playback.” Thank god I watched the playback. Because my eyebrows were doing this, and I was playing to like the 28th row. I’ve always learnt from mistakes.
Eddie Redmayne in the latest edition of Vanity Fair. Open in new tabs for high res.
My character in Jupiter Ascending, I sort of decided he should have long fingernails. I don’t know quite where that choice came from, it seemed to fit with the outfit.
It’s certainly Redmayne’s film, and his performance is everything you could ask for: completely convincing in its physicality, credible in its pain, and warmly but not crassly optimistic in its nearly constant good temper.
