Eddie Redmayne Gushes About Hugging Julia Roberts, 'Stalking' Jennifer Aniston at SAG Awards (VIDEO)
The actor tells Jimmy Kimmel, "She could have turned around and slapped us"
The night began when Roberts, 47, handed Redmayne, 33, the statuette for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role.
After watching Pretty Woman, one of his father’s favorites, “at an inappropriate age,” Redmayne found himself in a surreal position: “Suddenly there I was sort of hugging Julia Roberts, and I was meant to be articulate, and all I could think was, ‘I want to tell my dad!’ ”
After spotting Aniston, 45, at an after party, Redmayne says he and pals “just literally stalked about four meters behind her for the entire evening” until she was available for a photo.
But, the Oscar nominee notes, “She could have, like, turned around and slapped us for being stalkers.”
