Amazing people. great thoughts.

What do David Beckham and Stephen Hawking have in common?

When the legendary physicist, 73, met the soccer (and underwear) icon, 40, at an event hosted by Google on Monday, he used the opportunity to shed some light on their common ground.

Hawking’s message to Becks was nothing short of brilliant. “I’m always being compared to you as a British icon and sometimes you rate higher and sometimes I do,” he wrote.

Beckham was so thrilled with the encounter he posted about it on Facebook, captioning the photo, “It was an absolute honour to meet Professor Hawking. What he said to me was truly amazing.”

The fashionable father of four wasn’t the only Beckham who was starstruck. Wife Victoria Beckham also posted a photo including the caption, “was an honour to meet Stephen Hawking.”
