The British actor has revealed he and wife Hannah were so desperate to meet Jennifer Aniston after spying her at an LA bash that he "stalked" her for hours.
Appearing on America's Jimmy Kimmel Live, he said: "My wife and I love Friends. We saw Jennifer Aniston at a party and we were just incredibly inappropriate and so wanting to meet her.
"We stalked four metres behind her for the whole evening and eventually she was like, 'Okay!' So, we got to meet her and she was as beautiful and wonderful as you would expect her to be."
Eddie also revealed he was starstruck by Julia Roberts when she presented him with the 'Best Actor' honour at the recent Screen Actors Guild Awards.
"That was pretty breath taking," he said.
"My dad's favourite film is Pretty Woman so I think as a kid at an inappropriate age I was watching Pretty Woman!"
Eddie said that when his name was called as the SAG Award winner he was in such a daze all he remembers is getting up on stage and being embraced by Julia.
"There is extra euphoria, white noise, everything is a blur. Then I was hugging Julia Roberts! And I was meant to be articulate when all I wanted to do was tell my dad!"
Eddie has been picking up awards all over Hollywood for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. He will vie for the 'Best Actor' gong at next month's Oscars.
