Matt, who serves as the cover star for GQ magazine’s August 2016 issue, recently opened up about working with Heath Ledger in The Brothers Grimm.

“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.’”

FYI: Alicia is wearing a Louis Vuitton dress. Julia is wearing a Lela Rose dress, Neil J. Rodgers shoes, a Sylvia Collection ring, and a Beth Miller ring and earrings. Matt is wearing Dolce&Gabbana.

The Death Star rises on the new teaser poster for the upcoming movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is set to hit theaters on December 16.

The poster was unveiled alongside a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel during the Star Wars celebration held on Friday (July 15) in London, England.

The cast of the movie – Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, and John Knoll – along with director Gareth Edwards and producer Kathleen Kennedy chatted with fans about the highly anticipated movie.

“Jyn is not a character who’s asking, ‘Where am I and where do I come from?’” Felicity said about her character. “We know where she comes from and that fact is what propels the story.”

She added that Jyn’s journey is “to find her reason and her cause.”

The Force Awakens star Gwendoline Christie was on hand to moderate the panel!
