Redmayne can't wait for wedding

Eddie Redmayne has spoken about his excitement at his upcoming winter wedding.

The Les Miserables star got engaged to Hannah Bagshawe in June, but told E! that wedding planning was already well under way.

He said: "We are in the midst of it all now. The plan is a winter wedding. We're in the thick of that at the moment... We're doing our best."

Asked how he would balance the wedding with awards season and the buzz around The Theory Of Everything, where he plays Stephen Hawking, Eddie replied: "Priorities! We've planned this long in advance. It's the most wonderful thing."

He continued: "I'm desperate. I'm jumping at the bit. I can't wait to be married."

Talking about managing the Oscars attention his role is getting, he said: "I try and literally put one foot in front of the other. The fact that people seem to be excited about the movie, that just means the world."

Eddie also revealed where the word Redmayniacs, the name given to his fans, had come from.

He said: "I did an interview a few years ago with The Guardian in England and I think the journalist was talking about the Cumberb***hes, Benedict's fans.

"And then she decided to name my fans that. I don't know whether it's an official title. They seem like lovely people, they don't seem like maniacs at all."
