Eddie Redmayne and Jamie Dornan are two of the biggest stars around, but back when they were just up coming actors, struggling to make ends meet in LA, the lads actually used to live together.
Jamie actually shared an important with plenty of now stars, when they were just starting out. Including Andrew Garfield, Robert Pattinson, and Charlie Cox. But when he was living with Eddie it was just the two of them, but even then they still managed to have plenty of craic.
Opening up about the experience Eddie revealed life hack the lads used to save money when they were in-between jobs.
Explaining to Elle: “Despite the fact that we didn’t really have any money because none of us were employed we did tend to eat out quite a lot. But normally we’re eating out because it meant that you got free parking somewhere to go and and sort of play table tennis for an afternoon.”
Considering how successful Jamie and all his former roommates, fans are always very interested in what it was like for them all to live together.
The Belfast bloke explained while on Live with Kelly and Ryan just what is was like, saying: “We never felt like it was a competition. We’d audition for the same roles sometimes, and we’d even help one another prepare. Somehow we all found our way and managed to stay friends.”
Since rooming together, Jamie has starred in the 50 Shades franchise, The Fall, and his most recent project Belfast earned him a Screen Actors Guild nomination.
While Eddie has gone on to land roles in Les Misérables, the Fantastic Beasts film series and his role in The Theory of Everything garnered him several Academy Award nominations. While Rob starred in the hugely successful Twilight franchise, and most recently took on the role of the caped crusader himself in The Batman.
Andrew Garfield made it big with his performance as Spider-Man and recently starred in the massive success Tick, Tick…Boom! which also earned him a SAG nomination. While Charlie Cox starred as the leading role of Daredevil in the Netflix show of the same name and in our very own Irish drama, Kin.
It was definitely in their younger days as Jamie revealed their fridge was full of “mostly beer, you know. There was probably like a couple of, you know, frozen pizzas in the in the freezer. Usually, some sort of like cold cut meats you know like some turkey slices and salami and stuff to like survive.”
While they’ve all grown up since then, the boys still remember all the great craic they had together. In an interview, Jamie and Eddie even revealed one of the adventures from their early days in Hollywood.
As Eddie explained, “One day we went to a Pottery Barn or something, and we made some crockery. We made plates and clay pots, and I remember we wrote the names of all these actors who were our gang.” Eddie even revealed that he still has all the pottery they made together!
