Jennifer Lawrence Interviewed Eddie Redmayne And It's Amazing
Who knew the Theory of Everything actor and Katniss Everdeen has so much in common?!
It's always great when our fave actors take the time to give a good, gritty interview, but it's even better when two stars give each other a call and ask the questions.
Reality TV, meltdowns and projectile vomit were all discussed, proving that these two not only should be BFFs/be in all the films together, but are also just as weird as us non-celebs.
These are just some of our fave quotes from the interview, which was like Christmas came (really) early for us.
The moment J-Law realises Eddie LOVES reality TV:
LAWRENCE: You watch Real Housewives, Eddie?
REDMAYNE: I've been a closet lover of faux-reality TV sinceThe Hills. It's bad.
LAWRENCE: I feel like I'm going to cry. We're making a breakthrough.
What's your favorite shitty reality TV show?
REDMAYNE: I'm a bit vintage. I go back to The Hills. Occasionally Audrina [Patridge] or Whitney [Port] will be on a website that I shouldn't be looking at, and I'm like, "You know, I just want to check that they're doing all right, because it's my youth."
On their shared fear when performing an intense scene:
LAWRENCE: I don't know if you get this, but I get embarrassed really easily when I have to have big meltdown scenes. Do you get self-conscious?
REDMAYNE: Are you kidding me? I'm just one gigantic ball of rancid fear and self-consciousness. I'm entirely fueled by fear, so the fact that I knew it could be a catastrophic disaster made me unable to sleep, and made me work quite hard.
On not knowing what to do on their days off:
REDMAYNE: So you're a lady of leisure now? Are you finally having a moment off?
LAWRENCE: I am and I'm miserable. I was so excited to get time off, and now I don't know what to do with myself. What do you do when you have time off?
REDMAYNE: Someone asked me today what I've been doing, and I felt like I had to really make up something to justify my-
LAWRENCE: Yeah. I'm like, "I paint—I'm a painter!" [laughs]
REDMAYNE: What do I do? I don't know. I'm really shit at the piano. I play the piano.
LAWRENCE: I'm so happy you don't have an answer.
When she proved she's TOTALLY NORMAL:
LAWRENCE: Um. Sorry, I'm eating Chinese food.
REDMAYNE: Chinese? What time is it where you are?
LAWRENCE: This is my breakfast.
REDMAYNE: I'm impressed, Lawrence!
On The Hunger Games being over:
REDMAYNE: It's over? Wowzer. That's quite intense. That's, like, several years of your life.
LAWRENCE: I know. I'm not happy about it at all.
REDMAYNE: Wait, can't they write some more?
LAWRENCE: I know, right? I would totally do it. And now Liam [Hemsworth]'s doing a movie in Australia for two months. It's the longest that the three of us have ever spent apart.
They also discussed that time Eddie got sick at the BAFTAs:
REDMAYNE: I legged it down some stairs in the Royal Opera House just out of the auditorium and preceded to projectile vomit the entire way down the corridor!
LAWRENCE: Oh my God!
REDMAYNE: I know! It was horrific. And five minutes earlier, I had been chatting with you in the bar—but pale and sweaty.
LAWRENCE: I wish you had told me. I would've taken pictures!
On what their families think of the career choice:
REDMAYNE: My parents are amazingly supportive, but my dad works with numbers, and the statistics of how few actors get ... Did you ever stop to question it?
LAWRENCE: No, I never have. I was just like, "It's going to fucking work!"
REDMAYNE: Absolutely amazing.
LAWRENCE: You seem very driven by fear.
Oh, and then it ended like this:
REDMAYNE: We're working on it, Jen! [laughs] Bring on the tequila!
