If you think Eddie Redmayne is adorable now, wait until you see him during his high school years.
The Theory of Everything actor, 33, is featured in a set of recently resurfaced photos from his time at Eton College in Windsor, England, from which he graduated in 2000. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he was just as jaw-droopingly gorgeous in his teen years as he is now.
The photos feature several shots of Redmayne with the school’s choir, including one in which he is in full choral regalia and another with him singing while wearing Eton’s distinctive white tie uniform.
If you want to imagine what Redmayne singing choir songs would sound like, there are several clips of his purported skills online, including a beautiful rendition of “God Is With Us.” However, the songs have not been verified, so take them with a beautifully sounding grain of salt.
Another shot featured Redmayne’s class picture,at the time he was house captain (which is like a RA at an American university) of the Timbralls House.
Unfortunately, none of the snaps featured guest appearances by Redmayne’s other famous classmates – Prince William and Tom Hiddleston. However, Redmayne has talked about his time going to school with the future Duke of Cambridge, saying that they played on the same rugby team.
The prince and Redmayne were also members of the elite Eton Society (known as Pop) in 2000. One picture featured the future Oscar nominee sticking his head through a sign that says “Throw a Foam Pie at a Popper,” which is probably a reference to his status in the club. (We should note, however, that Redmayne’s face looks curiously foam-free.)
The past few months have been good ones for Redmayne, who is celebrating a string of successes. He has nabbed top acting awards for his role as physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything at the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, and, most recently, the BAFTAs.
To top it all off, he got married to his publicist girlfriend Hannah Bagshawe in December.
Next up, Redmayne will travel to Los Angeles, where on Feb. 22 he’ll attend the Oscars. He is nominated for Best Actor.
