A new favorite outtake from the 2018 GQ Germany photoshoot by Giampaolo Sgura

Outtake from the cover shoot via __eddie8oct2018 on IG

I haven't seen this photo before. When I saw it first I immediately thought of
the 2018 GQ photoshoot for the January 2019 issue of GQ Germany, because
his clothes style is similar. It turned out that my guess was right.

Eddie backs the new MND awareness campaign

“The film, through the form of dance, gives you a sense of the brutality
of motor neurone disease. It’s compelling with a clear message,
‘Don’t ignore the problem because there isn’t yet a solution'.
I want as many people as possible to watch and share it, even though
it’s a little uncomfortable, so that understanding of motor neurone disease
will be greater in the future. It has been gifted to the Motor Neurone Disease
Association, a charity which is close to my heart, and it portrays with huge
emotion, the gradual loss of control and the tragic nature of stolen dreams.”
- Eddie Redmayne

Eddie is a patron to the MND Association, he supports the charity
since he played Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.
Recently he  attended the first-ever online meeting of the
All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on MND to discuss
the impact of COVID-19 on the MND community.

Eddie spoke out against JK Rowling’s controversial tweets

He said in a statement provided to Variety: “Respect for transgender
people remains a cultural imperative, and over the years I have been
trying to constantly educate myself. This is an ongoing process. 
As someone who has worked with both J.K. Rowling and members of
the trans community, I wanted to make it absolutely clear where I stand.
I disagree with Jo’s comments. Trans women are women, trans men are
men and non-binary identities are valid. I would never want to speak
on behalf of the community but I do know that my dear transgender
friends and colleagues are tired of this constant questioning of their
identities, which all too often results in violence and abuse. They simply
want to live their lives peacefully, and it’s time to let them do so.”

I'm proud of Eddie. His statement is an example that your opinion can be told
graciously. I'm sick of the hater comments, they do more harm than good.
I think fear, revenge, jealousy, and hatred are the main catalysts of violence,
the real curses of our World. We all want respect, equality, peace, and love!

Osmund took up the sword and vengeance became his creed...

“I heard stories. Dark stories. That in the years that followed Osmund’s heart turned
cold. That in the shadow of his grief he found a hate. And that in God’s name… 
he took up the sword and vengeance became his creed… Some say he found the
witch…and that he tortured her and burned her. Others say it was never her…
it was only her guilt he saw in the eyes of the accused. I like to think that
he found peace… that he continued seeing beauty in the world… goodness.”

Eddie Redmayne found his casting as Dug in Early Man totally riveting. Nick Park
gave him the job off this film. "Firstly, what’s interesting is that every film you do,
you put everything into. So, weirdly those films that very few people have seen –
the fact that he’s even seen Black Death means a great deal! The other thing is
that it also makes total sense to me. What he’s looking for is so unique. I must go
and ask him what it was, though! My memory of that film was being in swamps
in Germany being beaten up by Sean Bean." (source: denofgeek.com)
