Matt Damon Opens Up About Heath Ledger: 'He Was Too Bright For This World'
Matt Damon is dapper in a suit while attending the premiere of his latest film Jason Bourne held at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Monday (July 18) in Las Vegas.
“He was too bright for this world. Coming off [The Brothers Grimm, I was] telling everybody that I just worked with the best actor I’ve ever seen,” Matt told the mag. “And people were like, ‘What are you talking about? The guy from A Knight’s Tale?’ And I was like, “You just wait. And wait until you see what kind of a director he’s gonna be.”
“There were things that he did where I couldn’t have got there in three lifetimes. And there were ways in which he was like a puppy dog. You wanted to protect him,” Matt added. “[His death was] just f***ing pointless. I called Terry when I found out, and he was like, ‘I’m sitting here in Vancouver. I’m looking out the window, and it’s a beautiful sunny day, and the lights are turning red, and the lights are turning green, and cars are stopping, and cars are driving. I am surrounded by mediocrity. And he’s gone.’”
