New Delhi, July 28 (ANI): Hollywood star Matt Damon recently got a surprise visit by 'The Smartest Man on Earth' Prof. Stephen Hawking on the sets of 'Jason Bourne.'

Recalling the moment, Matt Damon revealed on Australian news-program, 'The Project,' "We were shooting in Tenerif in the Canary Islands for Jason Bourne and they were doing this event honouring Stephen Hawking and Prof. Hawking came on the set that day. It was amazing. We kind of shut down everything for few minutes and everybody went to say hello and I said to him, 'Excuse me Prof. Hawking, I'm sorry I'm wearing these dots on my face. They are trying to make me younger for the movie.' I was talking with his nurses and he was composing a sentence on his computer. His nurse looked at me and said there's something Prof. Hawking would like to say to you and she turns the screen around."

"It said, 'It's easy to be younger. Just make time.' It was like a mic drop. That was so cool. It was one thing that he shared with me and it was funny at the same time it was double entendre. It was exactly what you'd expect from the smartest man on earth," he added.

The fifth installment of the Bourne series focuses on unexpected reappearance of 'Jason Bourne' several years after the conclusion of 'The Bourne Ultimatum' and at a time when the world is faced with unprecedented instability.

For ' Jason Bourne,' Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, while Julia Stiles reprises her role in the series.

The movie, also dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is set to release in India on August 5 in 3D and 2D. (ANI)
