We know Hoda has a crush on Prince Harry, and now KLG has her own British lust object: Eddie Redmayne's upper lip.

The dashing young actor came by the show Thursday to talk about his starring role in "Les Miserables," and to charm the ladies with his (apparently very mesmerizing) mouth.

"I've been fascinated by your upper lip since the first time I saw it," said KLG, toasting him with champagne near the end of their interview. "Seeing your upper lip this close..."

"My first job was playing Angelina Jolie's son," Eddie joked back. (It was! In 2006's "The Good Shepherd.")

Eddie was a very good sport about the mouth obsession, but we still advise British mums to keep their sons close when visiting NYC.
