Eddie Redmayne

So beautiful - just watching his performance in "Birdsong" - TiVo'd from Masterpiece Theatre. Very very pale English but sexy too. Great acting credentials for his age - not married. Could he be family??

Not gay, just British.

by Anonymousreply 105/06/2012

Who know, who cares if he's gay or not. He's an excellent actor and beautiful to look at. The scene in Bird Song where he is presumed dead, but is rescued by another soldier, who carries him in his arms, is wonderfully homo-erotic.

by Anonymousreply 205/06/2012

I thought he was excellent in "Red" (deserved that Tony, as did Molina, but, alas, Mr. Washington decided to do Broadway that year) and charming in a feckless way in "My Year with Marilyn."

Eddie's got it all going on: handsome, well-educated, great film and stage credits. Very watchable in 'Savage Grace', where he was sucked off by his mother, Julianne Moore. Seriously.

Huge Jackman is going to get all sentimental over him in Les Mis.

WTF? The man is ugly. Unbelievably ugly. You guys have really odd taste.

Because we think handsome has a broader range than a Ken doll, R6?

by Anonymousreply 705/06/2012

Gentlemen, I point you towards this quote from his imdb page:

[about his favorite color] The color that Yves Klein does. Wet paint has a luminosity that dies when it dries and it loses the gloss. So Yves created this color scientifically that retains that luminosity. He was a big showman, so he got it copyrighted. The color is called IKB-International Klein Blue.

Sure, he can act, but he's incredibly, incredibly ugly. What can I say. I'm extremely shallow.

Why does a gay man like you support Romney, OP? You called him a "kind and compassionate man" on another thread. Are you mentally disabled?

by Anonymousreply 1205/14/2012

I thought the consensus here on DL is that Redmayne is, in fact, gay. That's my recollection from reading other threads about him.

He's a great actor and very watchable, but I don't personally find him attractive. I think his lips look like strips of bologna lunchmeat.

He's the main model for Burberry.

by Anonymousreply 1405/14/2012

I think he is beautiful and this is coming from a man who is not generally a fan of the ginge. He definitely has crossover appeal. Plus he seems so sweet and earnest and he always has a surprised look on his face.

R13, oddly, I remember that comment about his lips from the last Eddie Redmayne thread.

Seriously. He is hideous. To the point it distracted me in "My week with Marilyn". I couldn't get past how ugly he is.

by Anonymousreply 1705/14/2012

I was really looking forward to "Birdsong." It had everything I love: A love story and World War I.

But it was so unbelievably awful. One of the worst things I have ever seen on Masterpiece.

I really like Redmayne. Thought he was wonderful in My Weekend with Marilyn. And I'm not a body fascist like many on Datalounge, but I was surprised how flabby his torso looked when he sat up in bed. He looked like a man 20 years older.

R12, it may surprise you but a number of gay men support Romney. We are more interested in the economy and taxes. I run a small business and am frustrated by the anti-business attitude of Obama and his either ignorance or or obiviousness to what makes small businesses prosper.

Um... Hi people Eddie is sexy in my opinion, but I am not criticizing people who don't find him attractive. What I am trying to say is that if I was him, I REALLY doubt that I would want to hear that people think that my lips look like bologna. I think that is kind of rude. Guys if you really don't have anything that is respectable to say, just don't say anything at all. Also, no one is ugly. Ugly is in your core, ugly is inside of you. Not the outside. Everyone is beautiful on the outside. So you should please stop the negative comments about him. Do unto people what you would want them to do unto you. Eddie is an awesome actor in my opinion and if he is gay or straight I think that we should respect that, believe me that doesn't change the fact that he is a good actor.

I had no idea they'd made a movie of Birdsong. I read Sebastian Faulk's novel and loved it. In my imagination, I always cast Rupert Graves in it, but he's way too old now. I guess Eddie Redmayne was fine for it. I'll have to watch it now.I don't think he's ugly, but he has a unique look and some very striking features. I like his eyes.Didn't he go to school with William & Harry at Eton? I know he's very posh.

by Anonymousreply 2802/20/2013

In spite of the fact that it was just adapted for TV last year, there is a theatrical film of Birdsong in the works, starring Nicholas Hoult.

Great to see Eddie getting such acclaim and leaping to the head of the Oscar race.

by Anonymousreply 4711/29/2014

Lookswise, he's got a Burn Gorman thing going on, although better looking. I find it appealing and given the right lights and enough booze, even sexy. But it's an unusual look, no doubt.

He does have an enthusiastic, wide-eyed innocence as well as that veeeery polite reserve that so many Brits do so well.

I'm curious to see how all that ripens.

R49 wouldn't be so sure about that. Having a disease or affliction is a sure fire way to win an Oscar. He may give Keaton a run for his money.

by Anonymousreply 5111/30/2014

The only way he'd win an oscar is if every other film pulled out of the running.

And even then, they'd just cancel the Oscars.

Countdown to obscurity in 3...2...1....

At least he'll be able to clean out septic tanks. Hey! Maybe he'll win an award for his baggy lips sucking all the shit out of the most septic tanks!

He has beautiful green eyes. His hair has a reddish tint, which adds to the effect.

R54, his mediocre looks is consistent with his mediocre acting talent. The only the he's good for is eye candy for obsessed stans.

His "breakout" role has already been done by overshadower Benedict Cumberbatch. Not to mention, it's not a movie that the average theatergoer will not line up to see. It may get good reviews by reviewers (whch doesn't say much, given that they're all paid shills) but the vast majority of his target audience won't bother. Who ever is steering his career is doing a shitty job, any chance of becoming the "next big thing" is gone.

As I said, he'll be a blip for about a year before he's slurping sludge out of septic tanks of a living.

by Anonymousreply 5711/30/2014

R57 He has done big movies before eg Les Miserables with Hugh Jackman, The Good Shepherd with De Niro and Matt Damon and he is 32 plenty more left in him

by Anonymousreply 5811/30/2014

R57 I wouldn't be surprised if he won at the Oscars. Granted he is no Brad Pitt but I think he did a great job in Theory Of Everything. He has the Daniel Day Lewis factor from My Left Foot. I think this years best actor race will be fairly weak. Saw Keaton in Birdman and wasn't as great as I thought he would be. Ed Norton stole the film out from under him. Academy love actors who stretch and playing a character with an affliction almost always works. No he won't be the next Ryan Gosling nor do I think he wants to be.

by Anonymousreply 5911/30/2014

Eddie was the child as a young adult in The Good Shepherd. I thought he did a very good job in that role.

R57 whoever said he was supposed to be the 'next big thing'? I think he has a great chance at having a long and varied career. He is a talented actor who would probably be happy with steady, quality work for the rest of his life.

And fuck cumberbatch. I'm tired of hearing about that guy.

by Anonymousreply 6211/30/2014

r57 is an obvious Cumberbitch, and is stamping her feet over Rednmayne getting mucho attention over a part that the batch played in obscurity.

He's definitely not conventionally handsome but he's not ugly either. He is memorable.

Just got back from seeing The Theory of Everything. Decent film, not spectacular. Eddie was superb, will get an Oscar nom.

And for as much shit as Eddies mouth gets, I was far more distracted by Felicity Jones' mouth. It's petty, but I hate those fat duck lips that don't allow the person to close their mouth. Or maybe she just has big buck teeth as well, but her teeth were always showing.

And there were eight other people in the theatre. I was the only one under fifty.

Harry Lloyd looked great at the end of the film when they aged him up a bit. Grey hair suits him.
