Why Eddie Redmayne's Girlfriend Helps Him Get Dressed

Eddie Redmayne, the British heartthrob who plays Marius in the film adaptation of Les Misérables, owes his girlfriend many thanks for helping him become one of Hollywood’s newest best-dressed male stars.

“I’m color blind,” Redmayne told PEOPLE on Tuesday at the National Board of Review in New York, where he and his Les Mis costars Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried won the best ensemble cast award.

“I’m confused with colors. When I go out to premieres and events, I have to check with my girlfriend [Hannah Bagshawe] that the trousers match the top,” he explained. “I recently wore a blue suit — and I had to ask her if it was really blue rather than purple. She assured me it was blue. I could not tell the difference.”

The freckle-faced actor, who played Michelle Williams‘s love interest in the 2011 drama My Week with Marilyn, is tight-lipped about his personal life with Bagshawe, but said, “I’m lucky to be with someone who is very supportive.”

The couple has been dating for about a year.

How can you call a creepy ginger toad-face a “heartthrob?” He’s suited for two roles: crazy religious zealot and young Hannibal Lecter.

I have watched this young man grow up from a boy into a man. He has so much class and integrity and he is beautiful. I am so glad he isn’t all over the newspapers with scandal like so many young people are. It seems the other stars like him, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson all have this sense of propriety, maybe because they are English.

Total heartthrob! Even more so in les mis!

Kate on

And the role for token pr!ck poster has been taken by Kevin…

Kevin on

Oh yes, I am so jealous of 40 year old housewives finding this guy polite! Color me green with envy! I can already predict his next film: Lifetime presents The Teen Years of Ronald McDonald.

Amanda on

I have no issue with calling him a heartthrob but calling this a style secret is a bit of a stretch. Whatever.
