Call it “the curse of the adorbs.” Eddie Redmayne, star of such films as “Les Miserables” and “My Week with Marilyn,” is a singing ginger with a cute British accent and a perpetually goofy, lovelorn expression. Of course women flock to him even when he’s out cold.

Eddie was on a plane recently and attracted quite the following. “I fell asleep, and when I woke up the man next to me asked, ‘Excuse me, are you someone important?’ I must have looked confused. He explained: ‘I’m asking because the stewardesses came over and were watching you sleep,’” he told GQ.

Don’t get a big head about it, Eddie. They’d probably do that for any member of the “Les Miserables” cast.

Speaking of “Les Mis” costars, Russell Crowe suffered a Twitter mishap yesterday. These days celebrities tweet nude selfies (either because they got hacked or because they don’t know how Twitter works) with such regularity that it’s hardly even newsworthy anymore. But Russell Crowe’s Twitter mishap was notable in that the nether regions his hacker tweeted weren’t his.

Crowe is currently in LA with his wife Danielle Spencer and their two sons. The couple reportedly split up last fall, but now things seem to be on the mend – although who knows how Danielle will react to this latest peculiar event. Yesterday, Crowe’s account tweeted a pic of  a woman’s naked pubic area, which was quickly deleted.
