Eddie Redmayne & Lily Collins Get All Dressed Up to Celebrate BAFTA Los Angeles
Eddie Redmayne, along with Vanity Fair and Burberry, celebrate BAFTA Los Angeles and the Britannia Awards at Chateau Marmont on Wednesday afternoon (October 29) in Los Angeles.
The 32-year-old British actor was joined at the big bash by Lily Collins, Ben Barnes, Felicity Jones, Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Jenna Coleman, Hannah Ware, Sami Gayle, and Callan McAuliffe....

Vanity Fair:
The Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything will make you cry. (It even made Hawking himself cry, and he livedthe story.) But there are also moments of surprising laugh-out-loud levity, courtesy of Hawking’s enduring wit, which never seemed to wane, even after the physicist lost his ability to speak following a tracheotomy.
In fact, Redmayne says that Hawking’s wicked sense of humor was so apparent during his first conversation with the award-winning cosmologist, that he worked with director James Marsh and the writer Anthony McCarten to incorporate Hawking’s comedic flair into the film.
“The overriding thing when I met [Hawking] was this extraordinary, razor-sharp wit and formidable humor,” Redmayne told us on Wednesday, at a Los Angeles tea he hosted, along with Burberry and Vanity Fair, in celebration of BAFTA. “There is a kind of mischief, a Lord of Misrule quality that I tried to take away from spending time with him, that I tried to bring into the performance.”...

New TToE love story futurette and articles

USA TODAY Exclusive: 

...“We all know Stephen Hawking,” says the British actor who plays him on screen. “But we don’t know about this extraordinary relationship that was the catalyst for so much of what he was able to go on and achieve.”...
...That passionate love story and capacity to survive at all odds was wholly amazing,” Redmayne adds. “There’s no question in my mind that it was Jane’s adoration and love — and his for her — that allowed them to overcome all their challenges.”...

Eddie Redmayne's performance in The Theory Of Everything is not only brilliant but so shockingly perfect it is beyond belief. Two Academy Awards, two BAFTAs, not only one of each, and every other award given for acting, should go to this extraordinary actor, who plays Stephen Hawking, the world's greatest physicist, in his new movie...
"It is a miracle of acting of the highest order, and from the very beginning of this beautifully-made film we believed that Eddie was Stephen."

Eddie Redmayne May be Tough to Beat for Best Actor
...I figured it was Keaton’s to lose until I actually saw The Theory of Everything. Sure, it isn’t a perfect film. It sanitizes what had to have been far more gruesome of an experience. And there’s a lot of focus on the marriage between Jane and Stephen Hawking. But you know what? That’s the lost art of character building, something often shortcutted out of movies now.
I found myself utterly and completely captivated by Redmayne as Hawking and I’m going to bet a lot of voters will feel that way. It was not just about his transformation into Hawking – it was the warmth, humor and depth he brought to a character who could only move his eyebrows and smile on occasion. I barely recognized Redmayne by the end and really thought I was watching Stephen Hawking. It is a triumph of a performance, among the best of the year and it’s a serious threat to win....

...He trained hard to get his body ripped (hello, six-pack!) for his work as bad boy Balem opposite Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in the sci-fi action flick. "It was a fleeting ephemeral moment," Redmayne joked with me last night at Theory's L.A. premiere. "It was there for a second."...
..."When you're 'applying' for the job, you tell people you could do it and you sound really confident but then you get the job and you realize you don't have a clue."...

But that hasn't stopped Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, costars in the upcoming, already-Oscar-buzzed film, The Theory of Everything, from looking extremely cute—and super chic!—as they take over Hollywood....

"She took to her Twitter feed to go, 'Under no circumstances!'" Redmayne recalls. "I was like, all right, all right! Am I that bad? I can put a whip in my hand. I can get all kinky, can’t I?"

Variety cover story, Envelope screening, new TToE poster and articles about Eddie

Remember this fitting session with Eddie Redmayne? 
Well, it turned out quite nicely for the cover of Variety for 
their awards season launch. Yes, very nicely. (x)

How Eddie Redmayne Became Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’
Excellent article by Ramin Setoodeh published today

 This is my new favrite Eddie Redmayne photo by Robert Maxwell.(x)

And then of course, we have Chapter Four. This black hole at the beginning of time. Space-time singularity.

...“What’s really interesting about Eddie is that what turns him on are really tough, tricky roles,” says Working Title co-chair Eric Fellner. “But he’s an incredibly good-looking man. So he can be a movie star too.” Redmayne won’t classify himself that way. “A movie star is someone who has to open a film to gazillions of dollars,” says the actor, who lives in London with his fiancee Hannah Bagshawe. “I’m just trying to pay my mortgage.”...
...Kristen Stewart, who co-starred with Redmayne in the 2008 indie “The Yellow Handkerchief,” says he thrives on taking risks. “We had a great time together,” Stewart says. “This is not a word I use a lot, but it describes him perfectly. He is a fucking lovely man. And he’s astounding as an actor. He’s the type of actor, and guy, you want to go on an adventure with.”...

The Film Experience:
Does Eddie Redmayne in "Theory of Everything" = Daniel Day Lewis in "My Left Foot"?
by Nathaniel R on Oct 27, 2014
...But, jumping ahead... who will win?
On twitter today I was briefly discussing this with Kris & Jenelle and found them both sympathetic to my notion that Redmayne has a rather underdiscussed but considerable advantage in that he is enormously charming in person. When races are tight, charm counts for a lot. I've seen him in public thrice, met him once, and this charm is highly visible. What's more his charm never tilts toward cockiness but toward genuine-feeling humility. That's quite a trick if you stop to think about how actors build successful careers...
Enormous self-confidence is a key ingredient in big careers. The humility is also a very good trick if you're a young male actor in a town that prefers their male actors to be firmly established before they're worthy of large honors. Too cocky and people think 'you haven't earned it yet, upstart!'
I'm currently of the belief that Eddie Redmayne will win though I know a lot of people, like Daniel who I also spoke with on twitter today, think this is crazy and that he's too young and underfamous for Oscar's Kind of Hollywood annual prize. Daniel's contention, which I'm sure is shared by many, is that Daniel Day Lewis -- the most common reference point for a Redmayne win since DDL was Redmayne's same age and also played a severely disabled man who made impressive contributions to the world -- was considerably more acclaimed and famous then than Redmayne is now when he won.
I'm hear to argue, as someone who lived through the rise of DDL and was there from the ground floor, that this is not really the case... Read more here
...the similarities in the careers to date are kind of spooky- crazy...

Article by Clemency Burton-Hill published in the London Evening Standard today:
F*** what did I just say to Stephen Hawking: Eddie Redmayne on meeting the physicist for new film The Theory of Everything
As Eddie Redmayne takes on the biggest role of his career, he talks falling apart in the presence of a great man and how the professor has killer timing.
As Eddie Redmayne downs his tea I notice three girls standing by a tower of funghi, surreptitiously trying to take his photograph. “Whatever Eddie’s got, that’s what you spend your life looking for,” says his agent Dallas Smith, who saw him in Twelfth Night and signed him on the spot. “He had a unique presence, even completely untrained, the sort of magnetism that only great actors have. The fact he had gone to Eton and Cambridge was meaningless. He had the most astonishing natural acting ability. You can’t teach that.”
Tom Hooper, who directed Redmayne in Les Misérables, concurs. “Eddie has the most prodigious gift, and it’s got to a point where his talent transcends the whole discussion,” he says. “There are plenty of people who went to Eton. There is only one actor like him.”
Redmayne, who is about to appear as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, is in many ways an unlikely actor. “I’ve no idea where any of it comes from,” Michael Grandage says. 
“I’m not sure he does. Ask him!”... read more
Eddie Redmayne’s Portrayal of Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’ 
...Redmayne studied with a dancer for four months to understand how his body worked. Hawking has a motor neuron disease which confines him to a wheelchair. Redmayne admitted that “trying to teach your body to do things it’s not used to doing; it’s a bit like training for a marathon.”
That tedious time period required him to study his body in an unusual way. He said, “I ended up literally doing a chart of every muscle that was going and where the voice was, things like whether he was on one stick, two sticks, which chair he was in, what glasses he was wearing, so I would have a way to jump in and out.”...
