Eddie Redmayne & girlfriend Hannah Bagshawe step out in London: super-cute?

I’m never sure if I should cover Eddie Redmayne in general. Like, is there a thirst for more Redmayne? Do you want to know about his personal life or do you just want to stare at his cheekbones and listen to him talk about Yves Klein Blue? Do you just want to talk about his crazy-amazing style (despite the fact that he’s color-blind!) and how he seems like a sweetheart? Or would you like to know more?

Well, Eddie has a girlfriend! He was seen out with her late on Wednesday night, holding hands with her as they left the Teenage Cancer Trust Party at the Gaucho Club. Her name is Hannah Bagshawe. She is his publicist! They’ve apparently been dating since “early 2012”. She reminds me of someone… I can’t quite put my finger on it. I think she reminds me of a character actress whose name I don’t know. I do have to give Eddie some props – Hannah doesn’t have an IMDB page. She’s not one of those hyphenates (“singer/actress/dancer/model”) and she doesn’t seem to grab press for herself. Maybe this one’s a keeper?

And I don’t know how old she is – I would suspect that they’re close in age but no one realizes it because everyone thinks Eddie is like 23 years old. He’s not. He’s 31 years old! He was at Eton the same year as Prince William, I believe. Those cheekbones play tricks on you.

Eddie won’t have any films out in 2013, sadly. But he’s currently working on Jupiter Ascending – a sci-fi with Sean Bean, Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum – and he recently said that he would “love to play Egon Schiele”. Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter, just FYI.

    HGF returns, albeit in pieces. Thanks, kaiser!

    So, is he a midget or is she an amazon? She looks like she towers over him in that last pic.

    • marie says:

      ha, I was going to argue until I saw that she was a step down. I think they’re cute together.

    • m says:

      When they stand on even ground, shes tiny compared to him.

    • tinak says:

      I think she’s average looking especially next to him. I don’t really think they look good together. But I also like that he isn’t dating some model or actress. He seems really down to earth and sweet and he really is a fantastic actor. I think we will be seeing a lot more from him in the future.

    Maybe Bonnie Wright? The girl who plays Ginny Weasley on HP.

  3. heatheradair says:

    Love her coat.

    I took a long time to warm up to the Redmayne, but he seems like a guy I’d like to see have a successful career (and props for dating a pretty girl who doesn’t seem to be out to snag her own reality show any time soon).

    Okay — I like ‘im. Now.

  4. Tiffany says:

    He mentioned in a interview that during award season she was the on responsible for his wardrobe, so she gets props on that end. Man, I just want to touch his face.

  5. m says:

    I read that Hannah is 29, not sure how reliable that source is though. She was also his date for the Oscars. They are very cute couple, feel free to cover them regulary 🙂

  6. Manchurian Global says:

    I could do with less. I don’t get his appeal. At all.

  7. Zara says:

    Hannah is 30 and works in financial PR – she isn’t his publicist.
    She went to Edinburgh University, and has the upper middle class upbringing i.e. moves in his circles.

  8. Maude says:

    More please! I can’t get enough of him. He’s so unique looking and gorgeous.

    His girlfriend is pretty in a very normal-girl kind of way and that makes me like him even more.

  9. Andie says:

    I had no idea that Eddie was 31! Still love him though.

  10. Tina says:

    Jennifer Ehle?

  11. Betty says:

    I think her coat is Burberry. Very British indeed. I want that coat too…

  12. Liz says:

    I’d love to hear more about him. He’s dreamy in a “I wish I was 18 again” kinda way.

    …and I just read the article and realized my lust can be justified since he isn’t a baby-adult like I thought.

  13. AmandaPanda says:

    bagshawe? is she related to louise mensch (nee bagshawe), English chicklit writer, blink-and-you’ll-miss-her Conservative MP and (lately) wifey to Ron Mensch?

    as for eddie, i don’t know – sometimes i think YES and sometimes I think…he looks kind of crepey, skin-wise. His hair is LUSH though.

    • GoodCapon says:

      Hm a quick Wiki search didn’t turn up anything. Either they are distant relatives or their same surnames are entirely coincidental.

  14. GoodCapon says:

    She doesn’t look good in these photos. I’ve seen other photos of her and she’s pretty, they look good together.

  15. Lamont says:

    Lucky thing for Eddie Redmayne.
    I saw those pics taken of him and Carey Mulligan 2 years ago and he looks EXACTLY the same.

    Incidentally did anyone read the twitter of the British reporter who met Eddie and Carey @ the BAFTA event last week. He said Carey was a “stuck up b8tch”. Surprised

    • loveisthecoal says:

      You know, something about her has ALWAYS rubbed me the wrong way. I have no idea why, but…yeah. Can’t say I’m surprised by that.

  16. Details, please!! says:

    I don’t know any of his work, but he’s got a great face, and she’s very pretty.

    Okay, here goes: I am American and something of a class warrior by nature, though it’s not something I think of often. Unless I’m reading Celebitchy, which I do daily, and see posts on the Middletons or British performers I’m not terribly familiar with. I am a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, in Parade’s End and Tinker Tailor, so I sort of can’t help but assume that Redmayne has been in crap, but I digress.

    I always feel unsettled when I read these posts about people who have had extraordinarily, insanely privileged lives — Eton, royal friends, yacht and Gstaad and secret celebrity islands (TM Jack Donaghy of 30 Rock) — people who had had literally limitless life choices, and evince no talent yet (I’m assuming and admit it) have ‘creative’ careers and adulation. It disturbs me — I wish there many more stories about stars who made it truly on their own but who don’t whore their life stories a la Hilary Swank — more like Naomi Watts, who was actually broke, not ‘poverty is like, cool, but I’m my own woman […until I married the head of LVMH] pandering. Or, ideally, posts about those rare, rad stars who have so much friggin’ talent that their backgrounds are immaterial — Blanchett, Swinton, Viola Davis, Nicole Beharie (thumbs up to a woman who dates Fassbender PRIVATELY – take notes, Eva Mendez), Jessica Chastain. Seeing people who can treat Allsaints clothing like Old Navy and work in ‘financial PR’ get candids taken while they go from private club to private club – it just bums me out. It’s not jealousy exactly, it’s just – a bummer.

    Everyone all together now: don’t click on these stories, then! Me: I know, but I’m a gossip addict, darlings, and I can always stand to see how poorly Pippa Middleton dresses herself and cheapens every dress/coat/bag/boot (oy, her boots) in every shot, and to see if I can figure out who TF some of these people are. I’m weak.

      oh same here! From one of the Aussie contingent who can’t get enough of this site.

      Great celeb gossip, discussed (mainly) intelligently = it’s all good.

  17. El Kiddo says:

    She reminds me of Eowyn of Rohan from LOTR

  18. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Vera Farmiga?

  19. Abby says:

    She looks like Miranda Otto (Awesome as Eowyn in LOTR, also was on that awful show Cashmere Mafia).

  20. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    “Like, is there a thirst for more Redmayne? Do you want to know about his personal life..?”
    Yes yes and yes!! Love him and want to know more about him all the time. He is so fancy and fun to look at and know about…very intriguing guy.

  21. Just Me says:

    I liked him in Les Miserables. Don’t know anything else about him, though.

  22. TLC113 says:

    More, yes!

    I am very pleased: I had to take him off of my list and put him on to my brother’s because I thought he was gay – but now I can steal him back. My brother will be sad, but his loss is my gain 🙂

  23. Carolyn says:

    OMG. OMG. OMG. Stop the Press! I am almost hyperventilating. Eddie is in a movie with Sean Bean. And it’s SciFi. It had better be bloody good SciFi.

    Note it didn’t register with me that Mila & Channing are in it.

    Be still my beating heart. Eddie/Sean in same movie > Fassy.

  24. Ally8 says:

    I can’t believe I am going to be the first one to type the word “beard” in this thread.

  25. Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

    I want Eddie Redmayne to do the Egon Schiele film! He would be perfect. But mostly I want to see a film about Egon Schiele!

    I would also love it if he did a film version of that play about Rothko.

    Nice to a truly cerebral actor. He is what James Franco and Tom Hiddleston wish they could be.
