Eddie Redmayne Says Nude Scenes for ‘The Danish Girl’ Were Embarrassing

Eddie has opened up on stripping nude for his new film 'The Danish Girl'.

T he British actor has amazed by becoming transgender artist Lili Elbe for the part and explains that nude scenes were difficult because it doesn’t feel natural to him to be nude in front of so many people. Eddie commented:

“Any time you get naked in front of a crew, it’s embarrassing. 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. I have a fear of talk shows on this one. They always say, ‘Tell me a funny story,’ but the film was so intense. We won’t be putting out a gag reel.”

Eddie says he was also surprised by how he was treated differently while dressed as a woman and it opened his eyes to how different things can be:

“Just walking onto a set filled with men, watching the difference in how you’re treated, or the scrutiny… the gaze was overwhelming. A lot of women I worked with said, ‘Yeah… welcome to our world.'”

The actor previously impressed by transforming into Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’ and he learnt how to be more demanding when it comes to preparing for a role from the experience:

“With Theory, I was so scared by it that it forced me to step up and request the things I needed – vocal coaches, movement coaches, specialists,” he said. “I had four months to prepare. For The Danish Girl I had three years.”
