Los Angeles: Hollywood stars paid their condolences to British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking following his death on Wednesday. Actor Eddie Redmayne remembers him as a "ladies man".
Redmayne got candid about the celebrated physicist he played in the Academy award-winning film, "The Theory of Everything" in an unearthed interview, reports dailystar.co.uk.
He also said that he reminded him of actor James Dean because he has this "kind of shabby and cool sex appeal." He also divulged that due to his nerves he kept saying "Professor Hawking" repeatedly to which Stephen said: "Call me Stephen."
However the 36-year-old concluded that he was "so, generous."
He is not the only one who remembered Hawking as some of the stars even posted their memories on social media, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Big Bang Theory (official Twitter account of the show) expressed grief saying, "In loving memory of Stephen Hawking. It was an honour to have him on 'The Big Bang Theory. Thank you for inspiring us and the world."
Katy Perry shared her pain expressing, "There's a big black hole in my heart hours before Pi day. Rest In Peace."
A heart broken Emmy Rossum said, "Just sitting here absolutely shattered about Stephen Hawking."
Tommy Chong said, "Stephen, have a sweet journey and we will see you again soon I hope."
