Warren Beatty Offered to Send Eddie Redmayne Money After Email Hacked

Eddie Redmayne now knows Warren Beatty is a true friend he can rely on.

On Tuesday’s episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, The Good Nurse actor recalled being involved in an online scam a few years ago where his email got hacked and all his contacts received money requests.

“I was actually in New York at the time and I had a big night the night before,” he explained. “And I woke up in New York and I turned on my phone and I listened to this voicemail. And I turned to my wife [Hannah Bagshawe], and I said, ‘I think Warren Beatty has just left me a voicemail checking [if] I’m okay and whether I need money.’”

“I was sort of hungover and trying to make sense of this thing,” Redmayne added.

The Les Misérables star said he finally realized Beatty was concerned for his well-being because he had received a “very persuasive email saying that I was stuck and needed” money or help. 

Now, years later, Redmayne still greatly appreciates this kindness his fellow Oscar winner showed him.

“To Warren’s incredible, generous credit, he was pretty much the only person who was kind enough to help to bail me out,” the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor added. “But like, to this day, that man has a great place in my heart.”

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan first mentioned Redmayne’s scam story on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast in February.

“We all just got individual emails, saying, ‘Guys, I need you to wire me some cash.’ And fair credit, Warren Beatty was like, ‘Whatever you need,’” he recounted at the time. “What a legend.”

However, Redmayne quipped to Meyers that Dornan — his friend and former roommate — also got the same money request, “which, by the way, he didn’t send.”

The host joked that the Bonnie and Clyde star must be his “only good friend.”
