THE GOOD NURSE Star Eddie Redmayne for GQ Hype Magazine

Posted on October 24, 2022

THE GOOD NURSE star Eddie Redmayne covers the latest issue of GQ Hype magazine photographed by Pierre-Ange Carlotti and styled by Tobias Frericks.



When Redmayne heard that the director had Chastain in mind as Loughren, he was also overjoyed. The two actors knew each other in the strange way that actors know each other – bumping into each other on talk-show couches, co-presenting at awards ceremonies – but they had never collaborated on a movie together. “It can be a bit scary working with friends,” Redmayne says. “A workplace is a different space. You can get along great when it’s family time and then really come up against it in the work.”

Throughout our conversation, Redmayne has mused a bit on his own creative ambivalence, his “cynicism” and “pessimism.” When I ask him where that feeling comes from, he’s careful not to attribute it to any particular project, but struggles to locate its actual source. “Acting is a weird mix of control and freedom,” he says, choosing his words. “When you make films, you kind of lose control. You’re a cog in that thing. You can work on the script for ages, but there comes a point where you have to give that away, and that’s a complex thing, you know? At its very best, you’re doing it with someone you trust and you therefore feel completely free. But it doesn’t always work like that.”
