While at the awards gala last night Tom Hooper spoke of Eddie and having him there with him to present his award.
And then they spoke with Eddie about his birthday.
Eddie Redmayne was similarly plotting to “muster up a few stray Brits” to ring in his 31st birthday the next day with his Les Miserables director Tom Hooper. “In fact, I think Hugh Jackman gave Amanda Seyfried a lapdance last year (for her birthday), so tomorrow’s a big day,” he said with a grin.
Last night Eddie attended the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala where he presented Tom Hooper with the Sonny Bono Visionary Award.

UK’s Yahoo Movies spoke with Eddie about filming sex scenes in his films.
Actor Eddie Redmayne, 30, who plays student Marius in Tom Hopper’s Hollywood film adaptation of musical Les Misérables, insists actors are no more sexually experienced than anyone else.
“Everyone hates it. The actors. The directors. They’re terrified. They’ll shout: ‘Action!’ and you start going at it and going at it… just for as long as everyone can bear to. And eventually you and the actress just look at each other and go: ‘Can we stop now? PLEASE’.”
Movie sex is “always awkward”, he insists. ” Just imagine you had to do one. That’s exactly it! THAT is what it is. It’s not like [actors] know what we’re doing more.”
Redmayne also spoke about how directors often cast in him dark roles: “Confused. Sexually ambiguous. Incest. Down pat,” he joked.
Referring to his role in 2007’s Savage Grace, the true crime tale of a son, who is seduced by then murders his mother (played by Julianne Moore), he added. “Whenever directors ask: ‘Do you play anything other than period?’ I always say: ‘Have you not seen my incest film?'”.
Despite being a new film pin-up and model for Burberry menswear he says he was not the best looking teenager. “I feel like I was mid-ranking… Maybe a 6.5.”
Here is a video clip done from the London premiere of Les Mis. Both Amanda Seyfried and Samantha Barks speaks out about working with Eddie.
(the video is on auto play so to watch click continue to watch!)
Eddie has spoken out about the rumors that he had a brief romance with Taylor Swift. He wants to set the record straight!
However Eddie found it ”offensive” when the press claimed he ”dumped” her as the whole thing was made up from one brief meeting.
He explained: ”It was absolute nonsense. We had a chat behind the stage for seven minutes. So I met Taylor Swift for an hour and seven minutes. Even by my standards that’s a pretty brief relationship!
”I find it offensive because it was I’ve ‘dumped’ her. You’re always told the press make stuff up, but when it’s about you, it’s extraordinary.
”Then you get emails from your friends going, ‘Dude, is it true …?’ ‘No!’ Then they don’t believe you.”
While on the red carpet promoting their film Les Miserables the cast demonstrates their warm up routines.
Especially love Samantha Barks!!!
A great new photo shoot of Eddie from the Times UK.
