Australian TV interview

  • Matt was interviewed on Australian TV show Sunday Night to promote We Bought A Zoo. The full interview is here, and an additional story about fame is here. Matt's quote about Heath Ledger was copied at the West Australian.

    Hollywood star Matt Damon, right, has opened up about how much he is still haunted by the death of Perth actor Heath Ledger.

    The pair had starred together in 2005’s The Brothers Grimm and were close friends right up to Ledger’s death in 2008.

    “It’s not something I’ll ever get over and nor anyone who knew him could ever get over,” Damon told Seven’s Sunday Night.

    “He was a really special guy... it just felt like his light was just too bright for this place.”

    Damon also paid tribute to Ledger as an actor.

    “I’m not being hyperbolic by saying this but he was the best actor I ever worked with.”
