Redmayne says that he is actually colorblind and relies on fiancee Hannah to make sure he matches when he gets dressed. The Daily Mail reported that Redmayne told People:
I’m confused with colours. When I go out to premieres and events, I have to check with my girlfriend that the trousers match the top … I recently wore a blue suit – and I had to ask her if it was really blue rather than purple. She assured me it was blue. I could not tell the difference. I’m lucky to be with someone who is very supportive.
