Eddie Redmayne’s first crush was a doozy: Nala from The Lion King. That’s right. A cartoon lion. The actor talks about his forbidden love on the upcoming New Year’s Eve edition of “The Graham Norton Show,” trying to explain his “sexual awakening” for a hysterically laughing Anna Kendrick. Watch the video below!

In fact, the entire panel of guests, including Liam Neeson, named the animated objects of their affection, and it turns out Kendrick has her own Disney turn-ons. Who knew?

Meanwhile, on the star-studded Christmas episode, Norton got Americans Cameron Diaz, Usher and Jamie Foxx to do their best Cockney accents, using the phonetic spellings of common phrases. They did a pretty good job! So did Rebel Wilson, who returned to her rapping roots by performing a rendition of the classic “Push It” for her very entertained Night at the Museum co-stars Ben Stiller and Ricky Gervais.

Diaz and Foxx also explained what it was like to work on Annie, which, of course, has a large cast of child actors. Foxx’s own young daughter has typically visited him on set, even on violent films like Django Unchained. She seemed very confused by the idea of her dad working on a kids’ movie, so Foxx re-imagines Annie as a dark revenge thriller. Check out all the videos below, and tell us what you think!
