Actor Eddie Redmayne says he is allergic to cats and it embarrasses him a lot. The Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them actor thinks it is “awful” that he has to take medication whenever he comes into contact with a cat, reported Female First.

“I’m really allergic to cats, which is a bit awful. It’s really embarrassing, whenever you’re near a cat to have to take an antihistamine,” the 34-year-old actor said.

Redmayne may be one of the most popular stars right now, but the actor hit a low in his life when he had to work in hospitality.

“Basically, the guests would come into one studio and you’d feed them alcohol to get them really drunk, then you’d get them into another studio to watch the soap awards, the idea being that they were super rowdy and that made great television.

On their way into the other studio, they had to hand their empties in, and all the guys from ‘Hollyoaks’ piled theirs on my tray. I remember one of them went, ‘Check this out!’ and put another one on top and I said, ‘Please don’t…’ And they smashed over. I remember feeling pretty deathly.”

In another interview, Eddie Redmayne also said he was worried about ruining Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them because he is such a huge fan of the Harry Potter movies.
