Jim on 'ridiculous' One Day outfits

Jim Sturgess had to wear some outrageous clothes for the role

Jim Sturgess has admitted he looks "ridiculous" in some of the clothes he has to wear in One Day.

The Across The Universe star had to wear some outrageous 90s-style costumes - including an all-leather get-up and a fancy suit - to play late-night TV presenter Dexter Mayhew in Lone Scherfig's big-screen adaptation of David Nicholls' novel.

"You try and have as much fun with it. I was aware of how ridiculous I looked," he said.

"I remember being dressed up in a pair of leather trousers and an open leather shirt, with my hair all bouffant, and I thought, 'I bet this is the character I get remembered for'. I looked ridiculous - I had this huge velvet coat on - but I guess you just have to dive in and go for it. He was an outrageous TV presenter in the 90s so that was all part of it, I guess."

But he has fond memories of a garish blue suit.

"My favourite outfit was probably the horrible blue suit I wore as a TV presenter with the giant shoulder pads with the velvet crushed waistcoat," he admitted.

"I'll only wear that once. It's a classic. I pray and hope that will never come back into fashion."
