Eddie Redmayne cringed at no stylist reaction

Eddie Redmayne found being naked on the set of The Danish Girl awkward.

Eddie Redmayne felt like an idiot when he admitted he didn't have a stylist.

The British actor is lauded for his red carpet style choices, and he has been spotted in everything from velvet suits to a burgundy tuxedo. He's also partial to a bow tie, which only adds to his dapper credentials.

In October (15) he revealed to that he selects his own clothes, without the help of a professional. The reaction was enormous, but Eddie found it hard to bask in his style glory.

"What I absolutely loathed about that is the world going, 'Uggghhh...'" he laughed to Details. "I felt like a d**k, but I was asked the question!"

Eddie's good taste in clothes may come from his dalliances with the fashion world. He's posed for Burberry on a number of occasions and although is adamant that he's never been a model, he's happy to be thought of as one.

"Christopher Bailey comes and sees young actors and musicians," he explained. "If you're going to model clothes, you can't complain when people think you're a model."

As well as his model good looks and snappy style, Eddie's won female hearts the world over with his slender, but toned, physique. He was able to manipulate his body for his latest role, the Oscar-touted The Danish girl, to portray real life transgender pioneer Lili Elbe. For the part he studied how his wife Hannah Bagshawe applied her lipstick and also how his make-up artist positioned herself as she sat so he could copy it.

The role also called for Eddie to be sans clothes at one point, something the 33-year-old always finds awkward.

"Any time you get naked in front of a crew, it's embarrassing," he admitted. "It's not as if we as actors have some way of becoming comfortable with it. It would be exactly like you getting naked in front of 30 people."
