Oh, Eddie Redmayne. Not only are you one of the most dapper dudes in Hollywood, you are also, apparently, very nice.
The “Theory Of Everything” star chatted with Glamour Magazine for its February issue (which hits newsstands Jan. 13) and arguably the best, most adorable part of the whole interview has to do with Prince William.
Redmayne was asked to recall his days at Eton College, which he attended with, you guessed it, Prince William. The two played on the same rugby team, and while the 33-year-old calls the Duke of Cambridge “a wonderful man,” there was at least one downside to being the prince at that time. “I always felt slightly sorry for him because everyone wanted to tackle the future king of England. He took all the hits,” Redmayne said.
We have a feeling between being married to Kate Middleton and you know, being the future King of England, he’s gotten over it. Still, we must commend Redmayne for his empathy.
