  • - I don't know if anyone has seen the movie yet,

  • but you are amazing in this movie.

  • You are absolutely--

  • [cheers and applause]

  • It's all about--We'll talk about the movie in a minute,

  • but it was your birthday two days ago.

  • Happy belated birthday. - Thank you very much.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • - Today, as this airs, it's Stephen Hawking's birthday.

  • - It is, yeah.

  • - How weird is that,

  • that you're so close together in birthdays?

  • - I know.

  • Well, I made that mistake when I first met him.

  • When you meet Stephen, there are these long pauses

  • because it takes a while for him to communicate,

  • and I was just filling air.

  • And I started telling him how we shared the same month

  • and that we were both Capricorns, which--

  • He is an astronomer, not an astrologer,

  • which he reminded me of, which was quite embarrassing.

  • So--but, no, we do. We share the same month.

  • - That's amazing, though, I think.

  • I mean, did you know much about him

  • before you started getting into this film?

  • - I am embarrassed.

  • I gave up science when I was, like, 14.

  • - Mm-hmm. - I'm useless.

  • One of--the greatest feat for me playing Stephen Hawking

  • was trying to back my way into pretending

  • that I knew what I was talking about.

  • I'd go to all these sort of complicated websites,

  • and then I'd go to astronomyforkids.org

  • and kind of try to work out--

  • - But you knew of him, and you knew--yeah.

  • I mean, I've been fascinated by him.

  • I think the "Theory of Time" was the first book that--

  • - "Brief History of Time." - "Brief History of Time," yes.

  • - And what was amazing about that--

  • was a book that really translated

  • to people like me, who really are pretty useless,

  • kind of the meaning of the universe.

  • - Right, I mean, he's a fascinating guy.

  • And you are-- you're getting Oscar buzz,

  • and--and--I mean, you're really, really amazing.

  • The transformation between the healthy Stephen Hawking

  • to what you had to do with your body,

  • you had to be sore every day

  • from contorting yourself

  • in that kind of position every day, right?

  • - Well, you know, I--

  • I had about four months to prep for the film,

  • and I went to the-- this ALS clinic in London

  • and tried to educate myself on the disease

  • and met some extraordinary people,

  • really formidable people, who are dealing and coping

  • emotionally and physically with this disease.

  • I then worked with a dancer,

  • and the dancer helped me train for four months

  • to kind of teach your body to shorten muscles

  • and to be able to sustain some of the positions.

  • So the whole process was riveting,

  • and really, I learned a lot.

  • - Yeah, it really--

  • It's amazing, and you deserve the nomination

  • for the Golden Globe,

  • and you deserve a nomination for an Oscar, if that happens.

  • You really do deserve that. - Thank you.

  • [applause]

  • - So do you--

  • When you sat with Stephen,

  • was he excited about this project,

  • and did he give you

  • any tips or advice about playing him?

  • - Well, when I met Stephen, it was about four or five days

  • before we started filming, and because--

  • because when you shoot a film, you don't shoot chronologically,

  • you have to sort of jump between different periods

  • in his life over 25 years

  • within the same day.

  • It was-- Basically when I met him,

  • there was so much I wanted to ask him,

  • but I almost didn't know where to start.

  • I got completely tongue tied, and I--

  • When you spend time with him,

  • he just uses this muscle beneath his cheek

  • to communicate.

  • He has a sensor on his glasses,

  • so there are these long pauses.

  • And I just get nervous of silence,

  • and so I genuinely spent the first half an hour

  • just spewing forth information about Stephen Hawking

  • to Stephen Hawking.

  • It was--it makes me sweat even thinking about it.

  • But eventually I calmed down, and he's just so funny.

  • He has this incredible wit,

  • and even though he can move so few muscles,

  • he just emanates this charisma.

  • And it really was a great privilege

  • to spend time with him.

  • - Yeah, you can actually-- you can see that.

  • I didn't-- I didn't realize that,

  • that he communicates everything

  • from moving that one muscle there.

  • - Yeah, so now, because the muscles have closed

  • even--or closed down even further than in the film,

  • he has these glasses with a sensor,

  • and then this muscles by his cheek moves,

  • and then on a screen, he has the alphabet with a cursor,

  • and each time he twitches that muscle,

  • it stops on one letter.

  • So it's incredibly-- I can't get over

  • how frustrating it must be.

  • - Yeah, to wait that long to finish an entire sentence.

  • - And to find such humor and such compassion

  • in the way he lived despite that.

  • - It's just a reminder that we're in here, you know?

  • That's who we are.

  • That's all that matters,

  • is we're always, you know, still--

  • Our attitude is all that matters.

- I don't know if anyone has seen the movie yet,
