Just as he received his Golden Globe this week for Lead Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne stars on Interview‘s February cover. Talk about good timing. The 33-year-old actor stood before the lens of Craig McDean for the portrait cover image in true Interview magazine fashion. Eddie can also be found inside the issue where he takes to the streets of New York City with McDean for a couple raw and grungy pictures. Leave it to Interview to showcase its cover subjects in a completely different light.
Forum members were quick to descend on the thread once the cover surfaced. “Beautiful. This has been said multiple times before but Interview always brings out the best in celebrities. My favorite publication hands down,” raved Style Savvy.
“EDDIE! Go get that Oscar, boy! Great cover and I can’t wait to read the interview. He and Jennifer Lawrence seem like such opposites, it will be fun to read,” added an excited SallyAlbright.
Also full of praise was cottonmouth13: “Eddie’s face has such stunning features and this cover perfectly shows them. Interview never fails. Bravo!”
“The angle is a bit weird but I love the intensity of his eyes. Also glad that they didn’t Photoshop his skin. Can’t wait to see what’s inside!” enthused Marc10.
But not everyone was so full of enthusiasm. “Nice to see him land a cover… but I’m not feeling it, he looks so weird,” complained HeatherAnne.
Miss Dalloway agreed and posted: “The cover is atrocious!! What a bad shot of him, there are some nice photos in the ed though.”
