the power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they looked at each other. yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.
Everything about filmmaking is incredibly weird, and there’s nothing natural about watching yourself on the big screen or hearing your voice. It’s that same thing that you feel when you watch yourself on a video camera and you hate the sound of your voice - it’s that times 800.
What would a week be without a wildly speculative, error-ridden Daily Fail story about Eddie Redmayne? The latest is a fantasized tale of Eddie’s “retail therapy” in Copenhagen to help get his mind off the Oscars — with his best buds Alicia Vikander and Tom “Hopper.”
Never mind that he seems to be leaving his Copenhagen hotel for the airport and that the Gucci bag which, to the Fail, signified a “successful retail experience” was the same one he was seen with at Heathrow, apparently carrying Hannah’s gown for the SAG Awards. (It’s a safe bet that they jetted straight to Copenhagen from LA, which explains why the bag was still with them.)
You’ll also notice that Alicia and Eddie were photographed separately, not shopping together (with Tom Hopper, er, Hooper, nowhere in sight). And that the top, cap-less photo of Eddie and the bottom photo of Alicia were actually shot outside the hotel on Tuesday. Finally, you think the Fail might get the name of Oscar-winning director Tom HOOPER correct once in a while. Or not.
Eddie Redmayne being considered for lead in “The Fifth Beatle,” biopic of Beatles’ brilliant and tragic manager Brian Epstein. Cautionary note: Source is the Daily Mail.
Eddie Redmayne has emerged as one of several actors being considered to portray Beatles manager Brian Epstein in a film called The Fifth Beatle, based on Vivek J. Tiwary’s graphic novel. The movie will show how Epstein took the Beatles from Liverpool and turned them into a sensation. The producers include Simon Cowell and Los Angeles-based Brit Stuart Ford, who runs the IM Global film company. Ford said he has a very specific idea for a director, who will be announced soon, but he cautioned that no casting has been done yet. He did confirm, though, that Redmayne was ‘on the list’.
