It’s like liv­ing with a puppy... which Irish star is Ed­die talk­ing about?

Irish Daily Mail - - Life -

HE used to share a flat with a Hollywood A-lis­ter and found that his house­mate’s hy­per­ac­tiv­ity wore him out. And Ed­die Red­mayne, pic­tured, re­lived his time with this fel­low heart-throb dur­ing an ap­pear­ance on Good Morn­ing Amer­ica.

The 36-year-old, who was pro­mot­ing his lat­est film Early Man on the US morn­ing show, said that liv­ing with Co. Down ac­tor Jamie Dor­nan was like ‘liv­ing with a puppy’ be­cause of his abun­dance of en­ergy.

Look­ing dap­per as al­ways in an RRL grey cardi­gan and Polo Ralph Lau­ren khaki cropped trousers, the Dan­ish Girl star, pic­tured, took a trip though his old liv­ing ar­range­ments with host Ge­orge Stephanopou­los.

Ed­die shared an apart­ment with the Ir­ish­man in their ear­lier years in the in­dus­try and there was an ap­par­ent ‘twi­light zone’ ev­ery evening where Jamie had a sud­den surge in en­ergy.

The English ac­tor told GMA on Tues­day: ‘Ba­si­cally, it was like liv­ing with a puppy be­cause he has more en­ergy than any hu­man be­ing you’ve ever met. There’s sort of a twi­light zone be­tween 5pm and 6pm when he just goes in­sane.’

Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie, 35, who is now mar­ried to ac­tress Amelia Warner, had pre­vi­ously revealed that he and Ed­die were ‘des­per­ate’ when they used to live to­gether, as both of them strug­gled to get their feet off the ground in the film in­dus­try.

Asked what it was like liv­ing with the Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them star, Jamie said: ‘Des­per­ate.’

‘We were both very des­per­ate, you know it was slim pick­ings in those days for work – the idea was that you’d come out and all go to the same sort of au­di­tions.’

And with both of them strug­gling to find work at the be­gin­ning of their ca­reers, the pair used to fall out over how many scripts each of them re­ceived.

Jamie revealed: ‘We both had the same agent at the time and I re­mem­ber on the sec­ond day, one of the couri­ers ar­rived with 25 scripts and Ed­die and I were like, “Who’s it for?” It was for me.

‘Ed­die didn’t take it that well. He was call­ing his agent say­ing, “Jamie just got sent a loads of scripts”. About an hour later a courier ar­rived with the ex­act same stack of scripts.’

Later on Tues­day, Ed­die was hard to miss in his vi­brant red coat and white run­ners as he stepped out in New York.

With his flat-shar­ing days be­hind him, the Academy Award-win­ning ac­tor now lives with preg­nant wife Han­nah Bagshawe and their oneyear-old daugh­ter Iris.

In Novem­ber of last year, the cou­ple con­firmed that they were ex­pect­ing baby num­ber two.
