“Pretty well-endowed,” Eddie Redmayne says emphatically, sliding his iPhone across the tabletop. It’s late morning at Colbert, a café-bistro in London’s Chelsea neighborhood, and, latte orders placed, it seems we’ve reached the dick-pic-sharing portion of the conversation. He points down at his screen, and there it is in all its glory: the chiseled, shimmering torso—of his Oscar statuette. And it’s wearing tighty-whities. The mini briefs were a gift from Jimmy Kimmel given to Redmayne in February after he won Best Actor for his portrayal of the ALS-afflicted astrophysicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. “The Velcro is coming off,” Redmayne says, laughing. “So, occasionally, he’s buck-naked.”
Redmayne, like his little gold man, prefers modesty—he’s bashful about discussing his well-heeled upbringing in London, his education at Eton (where Prince William was a classmate) and then Cambridge, where, as an undergrad, he landed his first big break in a production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, opposite the theater legend Mark Rylance. But nowhere was his almost-pathological humility more apparent than during his Oscar-acceptance speech, when he practically begged the Academy’s forgiveness for his short yet amazingly ascendant career arc: “I’m fully aware that I am a lucky, lucky man.”
He’s also kind of fucked. Redmayne, who turns 34 in January, realizes this too, which is why his typically British stiff upper lip is quivering a bit today. The source of his agita: The Danish Girl, the ripely timed story of Lili Elbe, born Einar Wegener, the first person to undergo sex-reassignment surgery, in Dresden, Germany, in 1931—and a role that brings with it more potential pitfalls than Redmayne can count. “You don’t want to let people down,” he explains, nervously fidgeting with a sugar dispenser. “And you know you will—you can’t please everyone.”
Since the first images of a lithe, ruby-lipped, bewigged Redmayne surfaced online in February, The Danish Girl has produced buzz and scrutiny in equal measure. After all, the difference between a subtle, nuanced portrayal of an iconic transgender pioneer and Mrs. Doubtfire–esque bad drag can be as thin as a pair of panty hose. And Redmayne—unlike Caitlyn Jenner or Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox—is cisgender, leading some to accuse the filmmakers of having wasted the rare opportunity to cast a transgender actor. Redmayne can offer only so much to counter that criticism, but the responsibility he feels to the community weighs heavily on him. As one transgender friend told him during his research, the decision to transition boils down to a willingness to “give anything and everything to live a life authentic.”
Eddie Redmayne arrives at the premiere of Focus Features’ ‘The Danish Girl’ at Westwood Village Theatre on November 21, 2015 in Westwood, California. You can go to the gallery to take a look to over 330 HQ photos, and, I am sure that more are coming tomorrow.
Eddie looks fantastic and I can’t wait to watch the movie. What do you think?
Last year’s best actor, Redmayne, takes on another transforming role, playing the first person ever to undergo a sex-change operation in a film that took 10 years (and as many false starts) to get to the screen.
Eddie Redmayne was about to shoot the climactic battle sequence in Les Miserables — the part where the French Army fires cannonballs into the barricades to scatter the student revolutionaries — when director Tom Hooper calmly strolled across the battlefield and handed the young actor a large unmarked envelope.
“I think he said something simple like, ‘Read it,'” recalls Redmayne, 33, recalls of that day in 2011. “Tom has a very gentle manner.”
The pages inside — the screenplay for The Danish Girl — had been circulating among filmmakers and actors in just this fashion for the better part of a decade. At moments over the years, there were even hopes that the film actually might get made — at one point, Nicole Kidman was signed for the lead — but something always went wrong. Financing fell through. Or talent dropped out. Or somebody got cold feet. “It was the subject matter,” says Lucinda Coxon, who wrote the script in the envelope. “It was considered commercial poison.”
Times change. And it’s hard to imagine a more hospitable moment than right now for a commercially viable movie based on the life of Lili Elbe, a Danish painter in the 1920s who — with the help of a supportive wife (played by Ex Machina and Man From U.N.C.L.E. newcomer Alicia Vikander) — became the first person in history to undergo a male-to-female sex- change operation. Far from poison, the subject matter has reunited an award-winning director (before Les Miserables, Hooper won an Oscar for The King’s Speech) and an award-winning actor (after Les Miserables, Redmayne won one for The Theory of Everything) to finally bring to the screen the story of a transgender icon predating Caitlyn Jenner by nearly 100 years.
Eddie Redmayne sure knows how to pick his movie roles.
Earlier this year the British actor won his first Academy Award for playing Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything.” Early buzz now indicates he may get a second shot at the Oscar, this time for playing an artist in “The Danish Girl” who was one of the first known people to undergo transgender surgery.
“Lili was born Einar Wegener. She was an artist, and she was living in a time in which there were no examples or even vocabulary with which she could understand what it was that she was going through,” Redmayne told TODAY’s Matt Lauer Thursday about his starring role.
Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl will receive a Humanitarian Award from Capri, Hollywood—The International Film Festival. The transgender drama film about artist Lili Elbe, which bowed this year in Venice, stars Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander.
The festival also announced that Paolo Sorrentino’s Youth, which premiered in Cannes, has been named European film of the year. The film stars Michael Caine as a retired orchestra conducter who is called back into duty by the Queen of England. Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano and Jane Fonda also star.
“Both Tom Hooper and the Italian maestro Paolo Sorrentino have the uncanny ability to bring highly sensitive subject matter to the screen in a way that impacts audiences on a global basis,” said festival director Pascal Vicedomini. “I am truly pleased that we are able to honor their most recent work at this year’s festival.”
The Danish Girl opens in the U.S. on Nov. 27 and in Italy on Feb 4. 2016. The Capri screening will be sidelined by a forum from the Young People Against Homophobia to discuss current issues in Italy. Youth, which already played in Italy, opens Dec. 4 in the U.S.
This year marks the 20th edition of the festival, which runs Dec. 26-Jan. 2. This year’s edition will be presided over by Danish director Bille August, and will be dedicated to French actress Brigitte Bardot. Lina Wertmuller serves as Honorary President and Mark Canton serves as Honorary Chairperson. [Source]
