Although he’s only been married for a couple of weeks, Eddie Redmayne has already discovered an advantage of his recent nuptials to Hannah Bagshawe.

“We came into LAX yesterday and when you are married, you can go as a couple up to passport security,” he told reporters at the 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Saturday. “Normally it’s quite intimidating! They were much kinder to me when I was with my wife so it’s fun.”

After tying the knot on Dec. 15, The Theory of Everything star, 32, and his new wife took a honeymoon over the holidays.

“We went away over Christmas and it was wonderful,” said the Golden Globe and SAG-nominated actor. “We went skiing for our honeymoon.”

As for how he’s getting ready for awards season, Redmayne says he’s “just taking it day by day.”

“When we took on this film, we just felt such a fear in a sense of not wanting to screw it up, and the fact that Steven [Hawking] and Jane [Wilde] seem to enjoy it, and the fact that the public is reacting to it – I’m just thrilled.”
