On Stephen Hawking: "He`s such a presence and you have to really know what you want to say to him or ask him because it takes such a huge, phenomenal effort for him to communicate with you. You think, `I really don`t want to waste this man`s time.` I was myself rather than thinking, `I`m a stupid actor; how on earth can I impress someone like this? I don`t know what to say to make me feel worthy of playing this man.`"
