Albert Einstein wanted to meet only one person in Hollywood and the person was the onscreen legend, Charlie Chaplin.
On 2 February 1931, the scientist got speaking to Chaplin at the premiere of the film ‘City Lights’.
Albert Einstein told the actor that “What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don’t say a word, yet the world understands you!”
Chaplin told him:
“True. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don’t understand a word of what you say.”
The conversation is legendary because it showed that both valued each other’s work.
