Published Nov 14, 2018The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending has since found something of an audience, but the film was not exactly well received upon its release in 2015. Among its many problems were a bizarre acting choice from Academy Award-winning performer Eddie Redmayne. Now, the actor has finally admitted that he wasn't so great in the film.
In an interview with GQ, Redmayne opened up about the much-maligned role, which won him a 2016 Razzie award for Worst Supporting Actor.
"My character had had his larynx ripped out by this wolf man, and so I made the slightly bold choice — which I thought was right — of talking like this," Redmayne said. "I won a prize for it for the worst performance of the year.... So, yeah, it was a pretty bad performance by all accounts."
