Stephen Hawking: cosmologist, theoretical physicist... and now, relationship adviser? On Saturday night the 73-year-old gave an interview at Sydney Opera House, appearing on stage as a 3D hologram beamed from his office at Cambridge University. There he spoke about his work and answered questions from the audience.

One of the questions asked, as reported by Buzzfeed, was: "What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn [Malik] leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?"

"Finally, a question about something important," Stephen replied. "My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes. It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another different universe."

But the gem was this conclusion: "And in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction," he added. "This girl may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married."

Theoretical physics trumps fantasy, definitely. Stephen would write an amazing relationship advice column, wouldn't he?
