Playing Eddie Redmayne Grills Andy Cohen on ‘Real Housewives,’ Talks Taylor Swift Dating Rumors

Eddie Redmayne has a not-so-secret obsession – The Real Housewives! So naturally, the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star, 34, had to ask Andy Cohen about his favorite Bravolebrities when he visited Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday.

The British Oscar winner revealed that he had a “deep bonding moment” with pal Jennifer Lawrence over the Housewives franchise, saying, “When you have a hard day’s work, you come home and I’m obsessed with really, wonderfully intricate and dirty reality TV.”

Redmayne proceeded to ask a series of burning questions about the Housewives, first wanting to know if the ladies could get fired. Cohen told him they could.

“Like, if they’re too complicated?” Redmayne asked. “Presumably that’s wonderful if they’re complicated?”

“Complicated is great. There's a small team of people that decides the fate of these women, and the women are involved as well,” Cohen explained. “If they don't want to come back, they don't have to. Being a Real Housewife, it's not a life sentence, it's not servitude. Although once you join the family, we like to think you can't get out.”

The actor then asked Cohen to place him into one of the Housewives shows and was given Beverly Hills.

“Oh good!” Redmayne quipped. “A chill bunch, a mellow crew.”

Cohen wanted to know if anything ever made Redmayne upset, to which he replied, “Uh yes! Frequently. I'm like one of those people who's generally quite calm until I see red and then all goes horribly wrong.”

“Then you flip a table! Sounds like a perfect housewife!” Cohen joked.

Redmayne was also asked about a past rumor that he once dated Taylor Swift.

“I absolutely can put the rumors to rest,” the now-married star confirmed. “I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift. Although, I met Taylor Swift, she auditioned for Les Miserables, and she was amazing in the audition. We got to sing together which was a big moment for me but no, we never went out.”

Redmayne played the lovesick Marius in the 2012 musical film adaptation opposite Amanda Seyfried as Cosette. Swift also auditioned for the part.

“She was extraordinary,” Redmayne said of the GRAMMY winner.
