He was the MOST charming Oscar winner ever
So happy, so fumbling for the right words and so blinking British.
He topped GQ’s list of best-dressed men
Probably because he can pull this sort of thing off
It's a bright green suit. And he's making it look good! What is this magic?!
He can ACT
On speaking to the Director during his role as Marius in Les Miserables:
Oh, and sing
He played Marius in Les Miserables and absolutely NAILED it. Watch his performance of Empty Chairs and Empty Tables here if you want to be steeped in a deep yet loving despair.
He can also mock his singing
You were once a workhouse boy Eddie. Never forget.
He did this that one time
Thank you Eddie. Thank you for this.
He tells everyone about his failures
Just so we can laugh along with him. What a babe.
He is one of us
ONE OF US ONE OF US
Oh, and he fancies Nala from The Lion King let's not forget
He is also a model. Obviously.
He can play a villain like a champ
He's starring as the dastardly Balem Abrasax in the upcoming sci fi flick Jupiter Ascending. Just LISTEN to that voice. Evil. And soft. Soft and evil.
He asked his now-wife’s father permission to marry her.
He and the lovely Hannah Bagshawe wed in December 2014.
He played Angel Clare in Tess of the d’Ubervilles which make sense as he himself is an angel
He gives gingers everywhere a good name
Thanks Eddie, keep up the good work!
If Eddie isn't your cup of tea (somehow), check out our other favourite gingers...
