Los Angeles: Actor Eddie Redmayne says that he worries about not getting hired again by filmmakers just like fellow actress Rachel Weisz.
"I was reading an interview with Rachel Weisz a few years ago and she said, 'Every time I finish a job, I think I'm never going to get hired again,' and I was like, 'Come on, you're Rachel Weisz.' But I absolutely get it," he told Gotham magazine.
"Because I think if you're lucky to do this thing professionally, that you loved doing as a child, and you don't feel like you're qualified - it's that old shtick of waiting to be found out. The idea that you do this job and get paid for it doesn't seem like it should be allowed." he added.
Redmayne also said that he needed time to perfect his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in the upcoming biopic "Theory of Everything", reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I said to James (Marsh, the director) I'd need time (to prepare), and he gave me four to five months.
"Hawking was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ) when he was 21. His disease is entirely secondary (to his life) as far as he's concerned.
"Similarly, I wanted to make all the physical elements of the performance so embedded and second nature. Some of my favourite moments were improvised. The emotional lines of the film came from reading Jane and Stephen's books, but also the patients that I met," he added.
