July 2007 Rome - Valentino 45 Years Anniversary

Eddie Redmayne attended the celebrations with Tara Hacking (his girlfriend at the time).

I found them in a video about the opening of the exhibition ‘Valentino a Roma: 45 Years of 
Style’ at the Ara Pacis in Rome on Friday 6th July 2007. They had a chat with Claire Danes 
and Hugh Dancy ... With around 300 garments and rare archive material, the exhibition was 
a retrospective that celebrated Valentino’s 45 years of creativity.

Let's play spot them in the red carpet video here
(Eddie and Tara in the background at 3:21)

Mayor Walter Veltroni gave his full support to Valentino's celebrations, permitting the
use of historic venues such as the Santo Spirito in Sassia, founded in 727 as a refuge
centre for pilgrims to the nearby tomb of the apostle Peter, and the Galleria Borghese.
Veltroni, who in fashion parlance is planning a comeback for the Eternal City, is hoping
that the glamour of the weekend will rub off. A retrospective exhibition of Valentino's
designs, which opened at the Ara Pacis museum in Rome on Friday, served to illustrate
the timelessness of his designs: almost all of the dresses would work on a red carpet
today. The retrospective, featuring the best gowns from almost half a century, was a
hard act to follow, but the presentation of Valentino's latest collection on Saturday
provided yet more examples of the designer's best tricks: the precise nip of a waisted
jacket, the opulence of a dress rustling with jet beads and trimmed with ostrich feathers.
A gala ball in the Galleria Borghese followed, beginning with a ballgown-clad
passeggiata beneath the Caravaggios, and culminating in a dinner for 1,000 guests.

Early Man workshop exploration - Blu-ray & DVD special features

On the Digital release, DVD and Blu-ray you find bonus clip about Eddie's 
Aardman visit with Maisie. Here are a few screenshots and gifs from the videos.
Eddie was amazed by the sets and the amount of work required for the movie.

"...the script was endlessly being fanoodled- I think I just invented a word. As you say, 
that world of animation- we would record once every two months and record for a day 
and then two months later you come back and they would have animated some of the stuff 
you recorded last time. You would go and re-record other bits where they’ve refined 
the script. It was a massively organic process. What was weird was that you never read 
the script from start to finish. So it was really, more than any film I’ve ever done, when 
you saw it, the final cut of it, it was super surprising. It was wonderful to watch because 
you didn’t really know what you were making as you went along." - (source: collider)

In the exclusive clip posted by FANDOM, watch as Eddie Redmayne, Nick 
Park (of Wallace & Gromit fame) and Maisie Williams (from Game of Thrones)
visit the set. Eddie was literally flabbergasted by the scale intricacy of the work.
“That insane,” he said when shown the Bronze City. The set — one of many for
Early Man — represented a years-worth of labor. - video here (Lawrence Yee)

"I just love the heart of these films. They have such a joy, and warmth, and humor 
to them that, yeah, I felt like it would be a lovely thing to get to swim in...
You sort of pursue the joke relentlessly and it’s quite brilliant." (source collider

Eddie Redmayne's Top 10 Rules for Success by Evan Carmichael

What  helped Eddie Redmayne to become one of the most successful actors? Evan Carmichael
posted on YouTube an interesting compilation from some of Eddie's best conversation videos.

“Be BRAVE Enough to SCREW UP. I try genuinely, when I'm playing a character, to not
judge them and just to inhabit someone as how one sees them. That being said, you also
want to make sure that you don't blur the edges of people too much because humans are
naughty and complicated beings.” – Eddie Redmayne 

Grab a snack and chew on today's lessons from
a man who went from finding his love for acting
at the age of 10, briefly pursuing a modeling career, to winning an Academy Award for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and becoming one of the most successful actors working today. He's Eddie Redmayne and here's my take on his Top 10 Rules for Success! (x)

1. Have tenacity 
2. Aspire for perfection 
3. Take on every opportunity 
4. Be a sponge 
5. Try to surprise yourself 
6. Trust your instincts 
7. Find your passion 
8. Have a strong WHY 
9. Work in a great environment 
10. Have fun

“I was one of the people who grew up with all of the stuff Aardman did, so when 
I got a call saying Nick [Park] was interested in me voicing Dug, I sort of insisted 
on a workshop day with Nick given that I idolize him.” - Eddie Redmayne
