Eddie Redmayne Says His Very First Boner Was for Lion King's Nala

Much like the Jezebel staff before him, actor Eddie Redmayne has admitted that his sexual awakening began with a movie character who's both animated and not exactly human.


"I was once interviewed and I was asked, like, who your first crush is," he told Graham Norton on The Graham Norton Show. "And I did...I loved The Lion King when I was younger and I had a weird obsession with Nala."

His toonophilia didn't end there. Ol' Marius also had a thing for Maid Marian from Robin Hood, which is totally understandable because Robin Hood himself is such a total fox. Whether that's pervy or not, I don't know, but Redmayne's fellow guest Anna Kendrick definitely agrees with me.

In an interview with The Advocate, Into the Woods' Emily Blunt discussed her many gay fans and some fairly lofty career goals. "Emily Blunt has a filmography generously seasoned with roles that have earned the actress a large LGBT following," The Advocate writes. "It's a fact she's lovingly aware of as we sit down to discuss her latest film, Disney's big-screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods":

"I know that's my demographic. That's been made clear to me by my fans," she says with a laugh, noting that she's often stopped by gay admirers of her work when she's out in public. "I love it. I think it's so cool, because one day I hope to be a gay icon."


If only it were so easy, Emily. [The Advocate]
