Can you identify these star-crossed Einsteins?
Benedict Cumberbatch The actor recently held up provocative signs about democracy, government, liberty, security, and journalism. “These are very complex questions and very difﬁcult arguments to be very clear about, so to ask the questions is to stimulate debate.”
Kanye West He questions not just boundaries in music , but those in fashion, art, and beyond. “We have to rethink, re- inspire. Wash the brain, not brainwash.”
Laura Linney The actress says, “After taking a part, I read the script and ask ‘Why?’ I ask ‘Why?’ until there’s no more “Why‘ to ask. I read a script and it’ll say, ‘INTERIOR: Chicago Tenement.’ I stop and ask, ‘Why is it a tenement’ ‘Why is it Chicago?’”
Muhammed Ali The former champ was known for his smarts and creativity inside and outside the ring. “I’m not just a boxer, I do a lot of reading, a lot of studying, I ask a lot of questions, I watch how people live. I was always curious. I always wondered, ‘Why?’”
Matt Damon The actor’s Water.org project tackles the prob- lem of the lack of safe water for 1 billion people. When the usual charitable efforts weren’t reaching people, Damon and Water.org partner Gary White asked: “What if local communities could have the means to create their own sources of water?”
Louis C.K. Louis C.K. specializes in observational humor, and one of his most famous bits concerns the endless questions of 4-year-olds: “A kid never says, ‘Okay I get it.’ The questions just keep coming. Why? Why? Why? Til you don’t even know who the #*@! you are any more.”
Key & Peele Answering a simple question can lead to big things. When the comedy duo Key & Peele were starting out, Jordan Peele says, “We recognized that we would be compared to ‘Chapelle’s Show’ a lot. So we asked ourselves “What can we do that no one else can do?”
Richard Sherman The cornerback talks about inheriting his curiosity and problem- solving skills from his father Kevin, who supplemented his job with the city’s sanitation dept by taking on odd jobs around the neighborhood. If Kevin was ﬁxing a car, Richard was underneath it with him, learning.
Claire Danes Danes says, “Growing up in New York City, I was always encouraged to question authority… If I hadn’t been an actress, I was thinking seriously about going into psychology. It’s just really what I’m interested in: The human psyche and how we process information.”
Beyoncé The entertainment superstar loves to challenge music biz conventions. Her latest release broke all the rules—and records. Her lyrics pose some great questions, too: “All the people on the planet working 9 to 5 just to stay alive. How come?”
