Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne had impressive talent even as children. Well, maybe one just a little more than the other.
During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Hiddleston revealed that he and Redmayne appeared together in a school play -- though Redmayne's role came with slightly more recognition.
"He was a great talent, even then. He was a huge star, and we were in a school production of A Passage to India by E.M. Forster," the Kong: Skull Island star recalled.
"It was an all-boys school, and the great Eddie Redmayne, now Oscar-winning Eddie Redmayne, was playing the female lead. And in A Passage to India, there's an expedition to this cultural landmark called the Marabar Caves by elephant," he continued. "And I'm delighted to reveal that I played the front, right leg of the elephant that Eddie Redmayne was riding on."
"We were holding a table with a cushion on top of it, and also a table cloth to cover our faces," Hiddleston confessed to laughter, "because our bodies are the elephant."
Though Redmayne did win an Oscar in 2015, Hiddleston isn't doing so bad himself. The 36-year-old actor took home a Golden Globe last month for his work on The Night Manager.
