Wow, this host asks really intelligent and informative questions. This is one of the best "Celebrity Acting" interviews ever.  Well done.

I think Matt nailed the action guy role, so many people enjoy the bourne movies because he's not the typical action dude (thank god)

This interviewer is one of the best I've seen. Previously I've watched the DiCaprio and McConaughey interview and she managed all of them incredibly well. Great job!

He is so amazing. Everything he says resonates with me so much I think we might actually be the same person. Except for the fact that I'm a 14 year old girl lol.

Predicted John Krasinski's career track for the next 12 years and he was definitely on point going 10 years now

he actually seemed a little surprised when he recalled what year they had written Good Will Hunting together....that kind of happens when life moves fast as his has done. He is excellent at answering the questions he doesn't seem to have an "answer script" he seems as though he were answering naturally as anyone would in a regular conversation. nice to see a sort of "regular guy" who obviously came from a little bit of privileged background since he did go to Harvard but sounds like he had a well grounded childhood and obviously had to support himself when he decided to go into writing and films. The audience obviously related to his comments as well. thanks

hopefully more interviewers will learn from this lady. That's how you interview. No. 1 priority - the realisation that people didn't tune in to watch you, the interviewer, they tune in to watch the people you are interviewing. So LET THEM TALK! You can tell the stars this lady interviewed clearly feeling comfortable and really opening themselves a lot when being interviewed by this lady.

I watched Courage Under Fire and the one thing that stuck with me more than anything was this guy. He was skinny and hideous at the start of the movie, and then in the flashback scenes he looked so different that i didn't even recognize him at first. I was simply awestruck at how much effort he had put into this role.
