Eddie Redmayne Admits He “Literally Stalked” Jennifer Aniston!

Eddie Redmayne stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and shared a story about his encounter with Jennifer at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards this past Sunday. This isn’t particularly ‘news,’ but I figured I’d share because I thought it was a hilarious story. You can read the article below or watch the video interview on YouTube!

“E! Online” — Eddie Redmayne isn’t one of those actors who is too cool to get starstruck.

In fact, on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Oscar nominee and Theory of Everything star said he feels “like a kid in a candy store” at all the celeb-packed awards shows he’s been frequenting lately. The 33-year-old Brit added that it’s “endlessly exciting” and “completely surreal” coming face to face with “all these people you’ve long admired.”

Of course, some celebrity encounters are more exciting than others. Eddie recalled the “pretty breathtaking” moment at the SAG Awards when Julia Roberts presented him his Best Actor award. “My dad’s favorite film is Pretty Woman, so I think as a kid, at a pretty inappropriate age, I was watching Pretty Woman,” he said. “So, this moment happens when your name gets read out and it’s such an extraordinary euphoria and it’s kind of white noise and it all kind of goes into a blur, and then suddenly, there I was sort of hugging Julia Roberts, and then I was meant to be articulate. All I could think of was, ‘I want to tell my dad!'”

The father and son later “had a long conversation” about Eddie’s meeting with Julia, he said with a laugh.

Sometimes, though, celebrity encounters don’t happen on their own, and in those situations, Eddie’s not afraid to take matters into his own hands! “My wife and I love Friends,” he began. “We saw Jennifer Aniston at a party, and we were just incredibly inappropriate. We so wanted to meet her that we just sort of literally stalked about four meters behind her for an entire evening.”

“And eventually, she was sort of like, ‘OK?’ and we got to meet her,” he said.

So…was Jen equally excited to meet Eddie and his wife, Hannah Bagshawe, or was she annoyed? Maybe even a little freaked out? Watch the clip above to find out!

Jennifer Aniston Covers “The Hollywood Reporter” – Talks Struggles, Oscar Snub, & More

Jennifer Aniston has graced us with another stunning magazine cover! This time she is on the cover of the January 30th, 2015 issue of “The Hollywood Reporter.” It is a rather lengthy article, but having read through it, it’s most certainly worth a read. Jennifer reveals her struggles with dyslexia and anger, as well as talks about her film “Cake,” her Oscar nomination snub, favorite guilty pleasure television series, and so much more! You can also browse through some photos, which include the magazine cover and 6 outtakes from the photoshoot. It’s no doubt one of my all time favorite Jennifer shoots. Enjoy and have fun reading and browsing through the photos!

“The Hollywood Reporter” — This story first appeared in the Jan. 30 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Just last week, all around Hollywood the words “Jennifer Aniston” and “Oscar nomination” were being mentioned in the same breath. The Friends star had made a stunning switch to serious drama with Cake, a roughly $7 million indie release that opens Jan. 23; the movie had debuted at the Toronto Film Festival to terrific reviews for the actress, if not for the film itself; she had Harvey Weinstein’s former awards consultant, Lisa Taback, on the case; and a nomination looked teed up and ready to go.

Then on Thursday, Jan. 15, at 5:40 a.m., the rug was pulled out from under the movie. Hours after Aniston’s triumphant appearance at Cake’s Los Angeles premiere, with a nomination from every other major voting body in Hollywood under her belt, a swirl of “SNUBBED!” headlines emerged when the best actress nominations were announced and they didn’t include the star. After Selma (which landed just two noms, for picture and song), the Aniston rebuke was the dominant entertainment story du jour.

“I know a lot of people were sorry,” she says, speaking the day after the nominations. “I feel I’ve gotten such wonderful love — I had almost more phone calls and flowers than I did for any other nomination [in the past].”

Whatever pain or anger she may have felt, whatever disappointment or sense of loss (and let’s not kid ourselves: Every Oscar snub feels acute to even the strongest person), Aniston never let on. She even joked about it a few days later on Ellen, calling herself “the number-one snubbed” (an honor that might perhaps belong to Selma director Ava DuVernay). She was exactly what millions of fans who have known her for two decades wanted her to be: funny and self-deprecating and exquisitely human.

Other actresses might have induced a tsunami of schadenfreude. But Aniston’s enduring appeal is rooted in the very fact that she can be hurt, again and again — whether by the Oscars or the Sexiest Man Alive — and she’ll endure. She’s rich and glamorous and famous, but she’s also one of us: a real person with a beating heart.

Jennifer Aniston Refuses to Watch the Oscar Nominations Being Announced Tomorrow

“E! Online” — We imagine Jennifer Aniston won’t be getting much sleep tonight.

The Oscar nominations are being announced at 8:30 a.m. ET tomorrow and many award pundits predict her name will be called in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role category for her work in Cake (in theaters on Jan. 23).

However, the former Friends star insists she’ll be sleeping during the big announcement.

“I’ll be in bed,” she told me earlier tonight at the Cake premiere at the ArcLight in Hollywood. “I’ll be in bed with my beloved [Justin Theroux] and my dogs dreaming wild little dreams.”

Aniston insists she won’t be setting her alarm.

“I’m not going to torture myself,” she said, laughing. “My phone rang yesterday at five o’clock in the morning and I was like, ‘What’s happening? Who’s dead? Is today Thursday?'”

In Cake, Aniston stars as a woman suffering from chronic pain as the result of a horrific accident. She not only becomes addicted to prescription painkillers, she also becomes obsessed with the suicide of a woman in her chronic pain support group.

Aniston wore little makeup and had prosthetic scarring across her face and body for the film.

She loved going glamour-free. “It’s one the most liberating things,” Aniston told me in September at the movie’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. “It was incredible.”

Aniston was up for her first Golden Globe for a film role on Sunday and is also nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award (they’re being handed out tomorrow night) and a Screen Actors Guild Award on Jan. 25.

“Honestly, there were a lot of actresses who were campaigning for the role,” director Daniel Barnz said. “And then we found out she was interested. We had been long time fans. And the thing about Jen is she’s so warm and she’s such an innately forgivable person that it just made sense to put her into a character that’s kind of acerbic and hard and difficult. It seemed like a perfect marriage.”
