Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Oh, to be a fly on the wall at Colleen Atwood's fittings.

Considered one of Hollywood's greatest costume designers of all time (she has three Oscars!), Atwood's most recent work was for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

In other words, she got to dress Eddie Redmayne for the Harry Potter companion movie.

''Eddie's a really physical actor and, and we started really early with the shapes and how his costume was going to work and his movement and all that really early on," Atwood tells me. "So we evolved it and he loves clothes so he was really excited about what we were doing."

I caught up with Atwood in L.A. while she was promoting the DVD and Blue-ray release of The Huntsman: Winter's War (available now).

Yup, she's responsible for how hot Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Chris Hemsworth all looked in the flick.

While we had hoped Mr. Hemsworth would have shown more skin in the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, Atwood gushed of working with the Thor star, "Chris is so nice and so relaxed [that] you forget how extremely handsome he is. "

Forget how handsome he is?!

"You kind of do," Atwood insisted, "because he's so regular and then you kind of look and you go, 'Wow, he's really good looking.'"
