Eddie Redmayne wowed with his tap dancing skills on set for the latest Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue.

The Les Miserables actor was among a host of stars snapped by photographer Bruce Weber in a surreal shoot for the magazine's annual awards edition, featuring Emma Stone in bed with Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper on the cover.

Also taking part were Selena Gomez, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jonah Hill, Richard Gere, Jane Fonda and Ewan McGregor, along with a live elephant, a marching band, gladiators and extras in bear and gorilla costumes.

Eddie dances cheek to cheek with former Neighbours star Bella Heathcote, as well as a bear, and is branded "The new Fred Astaire" by the mag.

In a behind the scenes video on the Vanity Fair website, Eddie insisted: "I've warned them that I have two left feet!" But Dark Shadows beauty Bella revealed: "Eddie lied, he's like, 'I'm a terrible dancer' and the he's spinning me around and I felt like a chump!"

Sisters Dakota and Ella Fanning had fun wearing massive hooped skirts while Amy Adams was in bed with two bears and Django Unchained star Kerry Washington starred in a 20s jazz style shoot, wearing a Dior gown she was not allowed to sit down in, in case she wrinkled it.

Ben Affleck revealed: "I don't really have a sexy face, I lost that somewhere along the way. I just look into the camera."
