Hollywood actor Eddie Redmayne has paid tribute to Professor Stephen Hawking describing him as the “funniest man” he has ever met.
He said, we have lost a truly beautiful mind, an astonishing scientist and the funniest man I have ever had the pleasure to meet.
“My love and thoughts are his extraordinary family,” Redmayne said in a statement.
Redmayne won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of the acclaimed physicist in “The Theory of Everything”.
Look at Eddie Redmayne acting the role of Prof Stephen Hawking. Can you, for a moment, think, that this is an actor and not Prof.Hawking? This is what S.T. Coleridge describes as “willing suspension of disbelief”.
“However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.” – Stephen Hawking, Oxford 2016.#RIPStevenHawking pic.twitter.com/xKskvKqJxH
