“I was once interviewed and I was asked, who your first crush is,” the 32-year-old Theory of Everything star explained when asked about his unique “sexual awakening.” “I loved The Lion King when I was younger and I had a weird obsession with Nala.”
Stifling his laughter, the British star attempted to justify his animated obsession.
“Look at her face! She’s so sweet! She can sing really well!” Eddie said, to which host Graham Norton nipped the conversation in the bud, “That’s just wrong.”
He also revealed that he was in love with Maid Marian from Robin Hood.
Eddie’s reason? “She’s a fox” – literally.
Into the Woods star Anna Kendrick came to his defense, saying that “they draw them really sexy, because Robin Hood was sexy!” Meanwhile, fellow guest Liam Neeson admitted to crushing hard on Wilma Flintstone back in the day. Hey, don’t mess with Ra’s al Ghul!
