“I’m so extremely sad to hear of John‘s passing,” Natalie said in a statement (via EW). “I was lucky enough to make two films with him – both of which were taken to the next level because of his performances. He was the most talented actor, and also a deeply good and funny and poetic and smart and warm human being. I send my love to his family at this terrible time, and join his fans in watching his films that we are lucky enough to have forever.”

Pablo Larrain, the director of Jackie, said, “John was invincible. Unflinching. Eternal.”

    Mr. Hurt was so good as Richard Rich in “A Man for All Seasons,” whose testimony against Thomas More({Paul Scofield) helped convict the latter.
    “Richard, what doth it profit a man to gain the whole word for his soul, but for Wales?” when More learned Rich had been given attorney generalship of Wales for his testimony.
