Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen

Posted on December 11, 2012

Oh, for crying out loud, Eddie.


Eddie Redmayne attends the premiere of ‘Les Misérables’ in New York City in Alexander Mcqueen.

You’re wearing a goddamn gorgeous Alexander McQueen suit that you got for free. The very least you could do is get your damn hands out of your pockets while your picture is being taken.

Really. We’re annoyed. We’re stamping our feet and everything right now. No one gives us free McQueen suits, but you can bet we’d know enough to refrain from playing pocket pool if they did.

    Do they do it to show off the tie, belt, and precise stitching of the fly?

    • another_laura

      Maybe also to hide the cuffs issue?  I say because it looks like his are non-existent, which is Criminal.

  • Ummm, can we also address the pedophile facial expressions? 

    • lovelyivy

       yeah, not loving the face. It’s a cross between the villain in an old Law & Order ep and Zoolander.

      • There has to be more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking!

    • PeggyOC

      He’s already cursed with a mouth that’s just on the ugly side of too big (for my tastes).  Looking sullen with it just highlights the problem.

    • Tom Shea

       Only if you explain what a “pedophile facial expression” is. The hell?

    • j_anson

      That’s just kind of his face. I don’t think he can fix it. He’s got an odd mouth and deep-set eyes.

    • snarkykitten

       wow what the hell

  • Georgeous suit, the tie & pocket square are nice too- but STAND UP STRAIGHT – you look like you’ve been caught scratching yourself.

  • Jillaine13

    Trying to be too cool for school.  Knock it off and stand up straight.

  • Sarah Thomas

    Perfection in wearing a suit = gay = never getting a leading movie role again unless your name is Neil Patrick Harris.

    Hands in pockets/couture in a postapocalyptic diner in the desert/stubble/dumb shoes = insouciance = straight = all the moneys.

    I am sure their agents tutor them in this. 

    • Isadora Paiva

      Someone should tell Ryan Gosling that, then!

  • Pants_are_a_must

    That suit’s color is a gorgeous shade. You’re killing me here, with the pocket handses and stupid hair, precious.

    • Terrie_S

      Oh, gods, the HAIR. It’s awful and makes me automatically reach  for a comb.

      • AuntJentie

        thank you!  I thought it was just me….always looks ridiculous!

        • DaveinAlamitosBeach

          Wait, is this hair a “thing?”  Because I can’t stand it.  Didn’t this strange combover to the front go out with Thomas Jefferson?  Or at least Liza Minnelli?

  • CeeQ

    Also: stand up straight, young man!

    (I kinda find him to be on the douche-y side…..=S)

    • Sobaika

      I have never really heard of him before the Les Mis press machine, but yours seems to be a popular opinion.

      • CeeQ

        I saw him first in a British TV movie series (similar to Game of Thrones) called “Pillars of the Earth” and he was quite good in it, acting wise. I was disappointed by his personality after seeing him on the red carpet a few times….too bad, eh? Can’t win ’em all =)

  • In pictures where he doesn’t have his hands in his pockets, he looks AMAZING. I was looking at them last night and this suit is the best thing he’s worn in ages.

    • MissAmynae

      ooh, even against the teal velvet burberry?  I loved that one. this one is better, though. agree about the other pics- hands out of pockets make such a huge difference. 

      • I did love the velvet, but there’s something about this color on his skin tone that looks incredible.

        • MissAmynae

          *nods* indeed it is an excellent choice. 

  • Judy_J

    What a waste of a perfectly beautiful suit.

  • Dot

    This guy always looks so douchey.

  • gabbilevy

    I DONT EVEN CARE I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. He clearly needs a lesson on posture though, and I’m happy to oblige.

    • mike__tv


    • MissAmynae

      needs someone poking him in the back and smacking his hands when they approach his pocketses.

  • B_C_J

    The color of his suit is WONDERFUL and it appears to fit him beautifully despite the fact that his hands are in his pockets.

    • formerlyAnon

       I wonder if he’s just very close to a standard size or if he actually insists the suits he appears in be tailored to fit him.

  • Nicholas

    This would have been a WERQ on a guy who actually cared about looking good on the red carpet. The shoes are also dreadful.

  • Is his tie tucked into his pants?

    • another_laura

      Oh my god, it is!  My eyes are rolling so far back I may pass out.

  • Hetha Innis

    That suit is IN.SANE. I’m freaking out over it. Can’t even imagine how it would look if he stood more like an adult in it. 

  • His hair is simply ridiculous.

  • MzzPants

     Well, at least it’s not grey.  The tie and pocket square are nice.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    I feel like he always looks insufferably pleased with himself. He should work on poses AND facial expressions for future red carpets. 

    • mike__tv

      Exactly, like some boarding school blue blood bully. I’m sure he’s sweet as a dumpling…well I have no idea what he’s like. 

  • crash1212

    He bugs. Beautiful suit with expert accessorizing…but, hate the Nero hair.

    • Tamara Hogan

       And the perpetually sulky expression.

  • such a stunning color…

  • E D


  • MissMariRose

    Also, close your mouth. You’re not JLo.

  • eruannalle

    I’m sort of laughing at the comments here saying he looks kind of douchey? Because I would probably be agreeing with you guys if I hadn’t up to this point seen about a billion interviews and such with him, and he’s actually really sweet and charming and delightful – it’s just that he’s an enormous awkward dork who has no idea how to pose for pictures properly. Oh, Eddie. 

  • mike__tv

    I remember this phrase from some book I’ve forgotten: ” he had callous good looks” I think this describes him. 

  • StellaZafella

    Eddie thinks: “I just know I’m gonna get read for this by TLo and the Bitter Kittens but…It’s the premiere of Les Miz, I’m on the red carpet in a Mcqueen Suit and they’re taking my picture!…I’m so hot right now, I better keep my hands in my pockets or everyone will see just how hot for this moment I am!”

  • I looooove the suit, but it would have been great to see it without his hands in the pockets.

  • Monday1900

    James Dean you’re not Eddie, thank you for playing.  Adore the suit though–what a color (colour?)!

  • Love the suit and the accessories – his stylist did good. Pity he’s wanking all over it. 

  • MilaXX

    also, wth is wrong with his hair?

    • formerlyAnon

       I wanted to believe it was a rogue stylist, but this is about the fourth event I’ve seen photos from with that hair. Starting to fear he, or a stylist he trusts, likes it.

  • another_laura

    His hair.  sheesh.  Intense disike.

  • nannypoo

    He has actually become hot. I did not see that coming. However, someone needs to tell him that those wispy little tendrils on his temples look pretty ridiculous.

  • Sally3000

    Not a fan of the Julius Caesar hair. 

  • Maybe with his Le Miz salary he’ll be able to afford a comb.

  • formerlyAnon

    Since I know nothing about him but that he’s a skinny young thing who recently wore a lovely, sexy velvet suit, I choose to believe that he’s also a charming young man in a gorgeous suit who will eventually learn to pose.

    But somebody’s gotta talk to him about that hair – I’ve been ignoring that combed-forward-and-plastered-down-on-the-sides look, hoping it came from a chance-met hairdresser and would pass. But it’s starting to look like it’s a hair style he’s chosen or a has been chosen by a hair stylist who works him or for the movie promotional juggernaut and who will follow him around the world doing odd things to his hair.

    Eddie, just say no. Male pattern baldness and shaving accidents that removed too much side burn are each preferable to this look.

  • Zippypie

    Dork with major dork hair in fabulous suit/tie/pocket square.  He needs an intervention before dork morphs into douche.

  • maggiemaybe

    Great suit. Is it just me or is he kind of creepy looking?

  • kimmeister

    The suit’s color is amazing and makes its shiniess forgivable. However, I don’t think the color works very well with his coloring.  He looked better in the dark teal the other day.

  • bertkeeter

    Amazing color! 

  • RocknRollmom

    Gorgeous suit.  I will forgive him his hands in his pockets as I tend to do it myself when nervous.  As I noted in the comments as to him and Amanda, his hair is an unfortunate London City young man about town look that I see way too much of when I am there on business.  These guys all spend more time and money on product to get that “just so” style then I ever will.  I think it is absurd and hope it doesn’t become a trend here.

    • Kate4queen

      Agree. They are very fussy about their hair in London, my nephew spends hours achieving the right ‘look.’

    • formerlyAnon

      I am horrified to hear that this hair is “a thing” among people past college age.

      And then I think that being horrified by anyone’s hair is an over-reaction indicating my progress on the road to being an annoying old person. I fear the next step but one is letters to the editor about the wardrobe choices of pop stars already passing out of vogue.

  • I want to slap him. And not in a fun way. 

  • Jess_face

    I always get deja vu whenever I look at a post with Eddie Redmayne in it because he poses the EXACT. SAME. WAY. every time.

    Close your mouth. Stand up straight. Damn.

  • Jennifer Coleman

    He kind of looks like he’s about to bust a ‘Lord of the Rings’ move in that first photo. Love the color of the suit & tie.

  • plinkiedoodle

    And change the expression on your face.  I promise it won’t hurt. 

  • Anathema_Device

    The color of that suit is phenomenal.

  • I can’t take his facial expression, it’s so damn smug.

  • Louise Bryan

    Stand up straight, kid!!!

  • also, stand up straight.

  • I so bad want him to just stand up straight, stop smirking, and get a new hairstyle.

  • zbkat


  • SewingSiren

    If it’s a loaner, he should buy it . It looks great on him pushed out pockets and all.

  • berkeleygirl

    With all the professional modeling he’s done, he really should know better.

  • i think it’s unfair to criticise male stars too harshly for the pockets thing; women have clutches to clutch, and can put their hands on their waste if so inclined. the menses have nothing to occupy their hands, and it’s awkward just standing there.

  • Gosh darn it that is one beee-uuu-tiful suit. I don’t even like him and I am loving the suit. 

  • DessertWratt

    He looks like Tom Sawyer forced to wear a suit and a spit-shine by Aunt Polly.

  • quiltrx

    Eddie, you are SO close to “fabulous bastard” fashion territory…

    Stand up straight, get your damned hands out of your pockets…and while you’ve got Jackman and Crowe around, get them to teach you the sexy smile, m’kay?

  • In the thumbnail, I thought he was Seth Meyers!

  • librarygrrl64

    This young man does nothing for me. Sorry, fans.

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    I would settle for him not adopting this posture. Stand up straight man! 

  • boweryboy

    God.  Is it possible for a gay man to get wet looking at him? He’s fucking sexy hot as hell. 

    For all you haters out there, good.  More for me.

  • The suit is stunning. Wish he’d pose right.

  • trisker

    Why is he forward-fluffing his hair like actors in Mankiewicz’s “Julius Caesar” from 1953?

  • RzYoung

    Unforgivable. If I worked at McQ then before I sent the freebies out I’d double stitch the pockets shut!

  • decormaven

    I’m not loving the belt and shoe selections for this look. Gorgeous suit, but this fellow needs a few lessons in how to promo a designer cu,t or he’s back to wearing cheap off the rack knockoffs.

  • afabulous50

    That must be the default pose for male celebs…infuriating!

  • veronkimo

    Also, is his tie tucked into his belt?

  • kategs

    and stand up straight…

  • AND he needs to stand up straight.

  • His hair, with too much product in it,  that goes every which way, makes me want to lick my entire palm and flatten it out some. And yeah, get your damn hands out of your pockets.

  • Scott Isaacs

    Douche. Show some respect.

  • Carla_Charlton

    And lose the whispies on the temple hairdo.

  • Scott Hester-Johnson


  • pdquick

    He’s got really long hands.

  • julnyes

    That hairstyle bugs the heck out of me and his posturing is ridiculous. On the positive side – its a great suit in fit and color and I love that he is wearing a belt with it.
