Los Angeles - Eddie Redmayne "stalked" Jennifer Aniston.

The Theory of Everything star has admitted that he and wife Hannah Bagshawe were so desperate to meet the 45-year-old actress that they followed her around a room for a whole night until she noticed them.

He said: "My wife and I love Friends and so we saw Jennifer Aniston at a party and we were just incredibly inappropriate.

"We were so wanting to meet her that we literally stalked about four metres behind her for an entire evening... "

"Eventually she was like, 'OK?' Anyway, so we got to meet her and she was as beautiful and wonderful as you'd expect her to be."

The 33-year-old star also admitted that it was "breathtaking" meeting Julia Roberts at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last Sunday, where she handed him the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Speaking of the experience on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he said: "It was pretty breathtaking. My dad's favourite film is Pretty Woman so as a kid, at an inappropriate age, I was watching Pretty Woman.

"So this moment happens when your name gets called out; it's such a sort of extraordinary euphoria and it's kind of white noise, it all goes into a sort of blur.

"And then suddenly, there I was sort of hugging Julia Roberts and then I was meant to be articulate and all I could think of was, 'I wanna tell my dad.' It was amazing. My dad and I had a long conversation afterwards."
