Matt Damon says Heath Ledger, whom he worked with on The Brother’s Grimm, was too good for this world.

The 45-year-old Jason Bourne star said after sharing screen space with Ledger he felt that he had worked with one of the best actors he had ever seen, reported People magazine.

“He was too bright for this world. Coming off (The Brother’s Grimm, I was) telling everybody that I just worked with the best actor I’ve ever seen. 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 director he’s gonna be.’ There were things that he did where I couldn’t have got there in three lifetimes,” Damon said.

“Prince said, ‘I live inside my own heart, Matt Damon.’,” he said.

Jason Bourne also stars Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel and Julia Stiles for a July 29 release.
