“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.”
