In front Bohemian RhapsodyOn Friday, the winners released the bandits Rami Malek's Call yourself the best performer for the upcoming Oscar season.

But for Malek, who had a stunning transformation to play Queen Frontman Freddie Mercury, the positive accolades he received from Mercury's Queen bandmate were honored Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as Mercury's own sister Kashmira Cooke, are enough price.

"That's all for me," Malek said Vanity Fair Earlier this week, he added that he had recently received a May message after the guitarist in London saw a double-decker bus with Malek as Mercury. May told the actor that Mercury got a nudge out of the signage, considering that May and Mercury drove to London on a # 9 double-decker bus each day before they break to ask their managers why Queen still has them not had decreased May told Malek that he had seen the biplane Bohemian Rhapsody The poster was a full-circle moment for him as he realized how far the band had come – not just as musicians, but as pop-cultural figures worthy of a film's presentation.

After this Bohemian Rhapsody Premiere was in London at the end of last month. Malek could sit down with Mercury's sister and "talk at length, which was a moment I'll cherish for the rest of my life." Malek declined to discuss details of what they were discussing, but revealed she said she was emotional. I was allowed to sit with her and her son, and I think they were very moved. But we'll just hang out, you and me. "

Malek continued: "People talk about prices and things, but I'm good. The fact that after all these years [making the movie], Brian May and Roger Taylor are my friends, and now that I'm in London, I'll have tea and dinner with Kash. , , Leave the city. Who wants more than that? "

The only person near Mercury who has moved away from the project is Mary Austin, Mercury's best friend and former wife being played in Bohemian Rhapsody by Lucy Boynton. The biography shows the unfortunate love story of Mercury and Mary, which ended after the musician revealed his sexuality. The two remained friends and Mercury continued to believe that Mary – for whom he wrote the song "Love of my life" – was his soulmate.

"Mary does not do interviews for a good reason," Malek said. "She read the script. She was the script. I respect your privacy. She and Freddie were very private. , , , I think Freddie, whom she has in her heart and in her mind, and the love she had is reserved for him. I do not know that she wants to influence this image in any way. "Malek said of their relationship," I think they were the confidants of each other – two people who could share everything and everything and who were naturally in love had that deep, meaningful love that most people seek for their whole lives. Mary Austin is the person he most trusted in his life. I think she knew his deepest, darkest secrets. She is the man to whom he has entrusted the ashes after his death. She is the only one who knows where they are. , , , I think there is no Freddie Mercury without Mary Austin. "

Some critics have dealt with the fact Bohemian Rhapsody rehabilitates the image of Mercury. Asked about this particular criticism of Bohemian Rhapsody, Malek said: "The fact that he would freely admit was that Freddie Mercur's hobbies were sex. He was very promiscuous. "Malek had written the script – off Anthony McCartenwith a support from Peter Morgan– I would have also discussed lesser-known details about the musician: "He has arranged these elegant, sumptuous dinner parties for his friends, not strangers, as they are portrayed in the film," Malek said. "Christian did not even grow up, but he would organize Christmas parties and have a gift for everyone. He loved entertaining and was so generous. I mean, you could represent every aspect of his life. The fact is that we had two hours and the goal of this movie was to celebrate the man. When you wallow in certain aspects of your life, you really lose the glory of who this authentic, defiant, revolutionary human was and is. "

Despite the many conversations Malek had had with Mercury's friends and family members, the actor claimed that this was the most important resource for connecting to the late ones Bohemian Rhapsody Singer was his text. What he himself put down from his soul on paper and then sang as loud as he could in public. , I almost looked at it as a diary, "Malek said. "He put his heart into these songs. They are whimsical. They are sometimes ethereal. They are painful. The man was a very complicated person who was looking for love all his life, and you can hear it. "
