In the film, Redmayne plays pioneer Einar Wegener in the 1920s-set flick, who later transitions into a woman after filling in for a model in his wife's fashion show.

"We're looking at everything from a feminine perspective," Redmayne told The Daily Mail in a recent interview. "I think it's the most sensitive role I have played."

The film, which also stars Johnny Depp's new wife Amber Heard, will hit theaters in 2016.

Meanwhile, Redmayne recently admitted that he is a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston and was even rumored to have "stalked" her at the Oscars.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Aniston doesn't mind the fan adoration - as long as her fiancé Justin Theroux, doesn't mind either. The actor admitted that he is even obsessed with Aniston's Rachel Green character on the wildly popular sitcom, Friends.

She said, "It's so cute how he says that! He was hardly stalking. We kind of spotted each other from across the room and it was quite a civilized introduction."

Aniston jokingly added, "He can follow me as much as he wants. As long as [my fiancé] Justin is okay with it."
