Long before his Oscar glory, Eddie Redmayne was roommates with another actor whose career was then on the rise – Jamie Dornan.
"We used to come to LA and we'd go and we'd sort of rent somewhere or stay on friends' floors and go to auditions and fail to get parts," Eddie told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday night.
Eddie – who won the Oscar for Best Actor – said the "Fifty Shades of Grey" star is one of his "best mates," but he admitted he hasn't had the opportunity to see his pal's blockbuster film.
"I haven't seen the film yet because I've been shooting a film in London, but of course we've spoken about it," he explained. "I think it was quite an extraordinary experience for him."
Newlywed Eddie – who married Hannah Bagshawe in December – told Billy he's unsure if his wife will see "Fifty Shades."
"I'd have to ask her," he said. "I think it's a bit weird when it's your friend."
"The Theory of Everything" is out on DVD and "Fifty Shades of Grey" is in theaters now.
