Eddie Redmayne Girlfriend & Dating History Timeline
January 2011 - Mid 2011
After being photographed hand-in-hand in New York, Eddie and Shia LaBeouf's ex Carey Mulligan were rumored to be a couple.
Early 2012 - Present
Eddie and publicist Hannah Bagshawe began dating in January 2012 and were officially labeled a couple after they arrived together at the Les Misérables premiere in London on December 5, 2012.
Eddie later opened up on his relationship and how Hannah helps him coordinate his clothes, telling People.com, "I'm colour blind. I'm confused with colours. When I go out to premieres and events, I have to check with my girlfriend that the trousers match the top... I recently wore a blue suit - and I had to ask her if it was really blue rather than purple. She assured me it was blue. I could not tell the difference. I'm lucky to be with someone who is very supportive."
Rumors that Eddie and country pop star Taylor Swift were dating emerged after the two met while auditioning for Les Misérables. In an interview with Glamour magazine, Eddie claimed he had never dated the young star and only saw her once after the audition at one of his plays that she had invited herself to:
"It was about nonsense. We had a chat behind the stage for seven minutes. Even by my standards, that's a pretty brief relationship!"
