Eddie Redmayne Gushes Over Jennifer Aniston: We ‘Just Literally Stalked’ Her (Video)

The Oscar-nominated “Theory of Everything” actor talks about his love for the iconic sitcom “Friends” and meeting the actress for the first time during an awards show party

There’s one person Eddie Redmayne doesn’t mind stalking: actress Jennifer Aniston.

During an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday, Redmayne admitted to being starstruck at awards shows this season. The Oscar-nominated actor for “The Theory of Everything” specifically mentioned Aniston, who’s been nominated for her critically-acclaimed role in “Cake.”

“My wife and I love ‘Friends,’ and we saw Jennifer Aniston at a party, and we were just incredibly inappropriate,” he said. “We wanted to meet her that we just literally stalked four meters behind her for the entire evening.”

The admission made Kimmel laugh.

“She was as beautiful and wonderful as you’d expect her to be,” said Redmayne said. “Or she could have turned around and slapped us.”
