He’s becoming known as a romantic hero after roles in Les Miserables and My Week With Marilyn. And it appears British actor Eddie Redmayne is just as romantic in real-life as he enjoyed a romantic dinner with girlfriend Hannah Bagshawe in London on Wednesday. The actor, 31, and his publicist lover were spotted hand-in-hand as they left the Bluebird Cafe on the King’s Road in Chelsea.
At one point, the pair stopped for a romantic clinch on the pavement. The couple, who are believed to have started dating in January 2012, made it official on the red carpet at the London premiere of Les Mis in December. In a recent interview, Eddie admitted he was colour blind and relied on his brunette girlfriend to help him pick his clothes.
He told People.com: ‘I’m confused with colours. When I go out to premieres and events, I have to check with my girlfriend that the trousers match the top… 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.
‘I’m lucky to be with someone who is very supportive.’ Of course, Chelsea has long been Eddie’s stomping ground, having grown up in the exclusive West London district as a child.
Meanwhile, Eddie is currently filming Jupiter Ascending alongside Mila Kunis, Sean Bean and Channing Tatum. The sci-fi film, directed by Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski, is set in the future, with Mila as a lowly janitor who discovers she has a great genetic destiny.
Jupiter Ascending is due to release in July 2014.
