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

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

      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 =)

    • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

      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. 

        • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

          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.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ 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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/chris.kervick.3 Chris Kervick

      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. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

      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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

      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!”

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      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?)!

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

      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. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      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.

    • http://twitter.com/magadutari Ma. Gabriella Dutari

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

    • Louise Bryan

      Stand up straight, kid!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=535548244 Kim Baker Vidas Davey-Irvin

      also, stand up straight.

    • http://twitter.com/danielleRwest Danielle West

      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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/tom.r.markiewicz Tom Markiewicz

      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.

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      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?

    • http://twitter.com/thesquizz Lauren

      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.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      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…

    • http://twitter.com/fair_claire fair_claire

      AND he needs to stand up straight.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AntoniaDonnelly Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      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.
