“Jupiter Ascending” star Eddie Redmayne attends a photocall for “The Danish Girl” during the 72nd Venice Film Festival at Palazzo del Casino in Venice, Italy. Eddie recently said of the transgender community’s response to his casting, “Their kindness and support galvanized me.”
Oh, you little bitch.
That may seem harsh, but we’ve barely recovered from last year’s Redmayne Oscar poledance, which was fairly unprecedented in the history of male celebrity poledances. Endless months of Eddie leaning to one side, mouth agape, hair artfully tousled, a perpetual look of “aw shucks” (or whatever the English equivalent is) on his face. It was calculated and precise as poledances go, and it was obviously successful for him, since he won the damn thing. Basically, it was the male version of the Anne Hathaway Oscar poledance, except without the eyerollingly awful acceptance speech at the end. And the only thing that made it bearable was the fact that he was one of the few male stars willing to treat the red carpet like a catwalk and model his ass off as he walked it.
So why is he a little bitch? Because as this oh-so perfectly styled look indicates, we’re in for yet another Redmayne blitzkrieg for the next 6 months. The style will be on point (see above), but we’re all going to be so sick of looking at him by the time the Oscars ceremony begins.
The sunglasses were a nice touch. Send your stylist a basket of puppies or something, Eddie.
