Favorite Quotes from Eddie Redmayne
“As an actor, there’s a lot of scrutinies and, even when you’ve had success, it becomes about sustaining that success. A friend of mine described it as a peakless mountain. Even for De Niro, there’s Pacino and for Pacino, there’s De Niro.” – Eddie Redmayne
“Listen, acting is not surgery, it’s entertainment. You’re doing something to hopefully move people, to make them laugh, to transport them. But actors are vulnerable, and the reason we’re vulnerable is that we’re always trying to recreate human behavior.” – Eddie Redmayne
“I always try to describe making movies like summer camp, or some holiday where you spend all day, every day with a new group of people whom you kind of love and then never see again.” – Eddie Redmayne
“I did an interview once where I was asked who I found attractive and I went on about cartoons and Nala from ‘The Lion King’ – and it’s a bit weird but various of my ex-girlfriends actually did look like Nala.” – Eddie Redmayne
“It was an extraordinary spectacle. I was incredibly green and had no idea what an undertaking it is. I also have a new respect for models because they are so close to the front row and must be so self-conscious.” – Eddie Redmayne
3 Great Lessons from Eddie Redmayne and from the movie: The Theory of Everything
Now that you know all about Eddie Redmayne’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from him:
1. Love is More Powerful Than Disease
Although she was advised against it, Jane decided that she was all in. She wouldn’t let the disease stop her from marrying the love of her life. They were together for 30 years and ALS didn’t stop them from being together.
2. Marriage Requires Hard Work
Especially in this case, but Jane Hawking knew exactly what she was getting into and did what she had to do. Stephen Hawking was expected to live to be 23 and now he’s 72. Jane caring for him probably helped keep him alive.
3. Go For it!
Stephen Hawking is extremely awkward and shy, which fits the bill for most scientists, but regardless, he walks right up to Jane and asks her out. The worst someone can say is no, and he went for it. Like a boss.
