Jeremy Irvine: I’m low maintenance

Jeremy Irvine got dressed for the British Academy of Film & Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards in under thirty minutes because he’s too low maintenance to give any more attention to his looks.

The handsome War Horse actor looked dashing in a Louis Vuitton tuxedo as he braved the bitter cold in London to walk the BAFTAs red carpet on Sunday night.

Speaking to Cover Media, Jeremy confessed getting camera-ready was fortunately a quick process.

“I take under 30 mins to get ready!” he mused.

The actor was fortunate to have a team of stylists guiding him in the right direction for the glamorous event. He admitted he’s not the most style-savvy star.

“I’m such a guy about these things! I kind of thank God I’ve got people who dress me, otherwise I wouldn’t have a clue,” Jeremy laughed.

Sunday night’s BAFTAs meant more people than usual were fluttering around the actor helping him to get ready. But he insists he keeps his daily regime down to a minimum. And there are no special secrets to keep him looking so fresh-faced.

“I remember once someone asked me about my skincare regime and I said I just get into the shower, put some shampoo on and lather it on my face!” he said.

While Jeremy was not nominated for a BAFTA he was among a host of today’s biggest international film stars at the glittering ceremony.

Ben Affleck took home top honours, including best director and best film for his CIA drama Argo.

Daniel Day-Lewis took home best leading actor for his role as the 16th President of the United States in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.

Eighty-five-year-old actress Emmanuelle Riva took home best leading actress for her part in Amour.

Christoph Waltz and Anne Hathaway were victors in the best supporting actor and actress categories for their respective roles in Django Unchained and Les Miserables.
