Interview

Jennifer Lawrence and Eddie Redmayne should totally get together and binge watch Bravo!

The twosome discovered their mutual love for Real Housewives when Jen, 24, interviewed Eddie, 33, for an Interview magazine feature. The Theory of Everything star said throughout his press tour for the film, in which he plays astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, he would "come home from trying to pretend to know about astronomy and physics all day and turn on The Real Housewives."

J.Law, a known super-fan of the franchise, flipped. "I feel like I'm going to cry," she gushed. "We're making a breakthrough!"

The Oscar winner proceeded to tell the British star about her visit to Pump and meeting restaurateur and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. "I had her sign a bottle of vodka, and when she gave it to my friend who was with me at the Oscars, my friend said, 'Jennifer, this is so much better than the Oscars,'" she recalled, laughing.

Eddie admitted to being "a closet lover of faux-realty TV since The Hills," which aired on MTV from 2006 to 2010. "I can't believe the intricacies of their lives," he said. "I want to know how much of it's a sham, how much of it is directed."

His Hills love runs deep, too! "Occasionally Audrina [Patridge] or Whitney [Port] will be on a website that I shouldn't be looking at, and I'm like, 'You know, I just want to check that they're doing all right, because it's my youth,'" he said. "And the depressing thing is that it's not my youth. I was too old to be watching those programs when I was watching them."

Nonsense! In any case, the Interview feature highlighted another topic near and dear to the stars' hearts: Food! At one point during the chat, Jen admitted to eating leftover Chinese food for breakfast. "I had it for dinner and breakfast, and I ordered so much that I'll probably have it for lunch," she added.

Eddie, speaking to Jen in L.A. from Turin, joked her Chinese food "inspired" him "to go and have a s--tload of pasta while I'm here."

Probably wasn't such a bad idea. "My fiancée [now-wife Hannah Bagshawe] saw some photos of me at the L.A. premiere, and she's like, 'Ed, you're looking underweight,'" he recalled. "I said, 'Baby, I've got loads of sushi and juices.' And she was like, 'That's not what I'm talking about! I'm talking a f--king gigantic bowl of spaghetti Bolognese and a burger.'"

"I hate you, by the way, for getting skinnier on a press tour.," Jen quipped. "I only get fat. Because all I can eat is fast, hotel food."

Jen and Eddie's full chat can be found in Interview. (E! and Bravo are both members of the NBCUniversal family.)
