About the work

Heath Ledger and Matt Damon Contact Sheet

Andy Gotts:

"I was in Prague, on set, and the brief was to do some portraits for Matt Damon. He was filming Brothers Grimm at the time. Matt came in, and he sat there chain smoking, which surprised me, but I thought it was interesting. I wanted my iconic hard man pictures — this is Jason Bourne after all. Within about three reels I knew I’d got what I wanted.

Suddenly there was a bang in the corridor, and this huge shout. I could hear people laughing outside. The next moment, Heath Ledger bursts through the door looking very embarrassed. He’d wandered straight into our shoot. Matt says “What did you do?” And Heath says, “I just fell over outside. Can I hide out in here for a bit?”

Before I know it, Heath has crept around me and jumped into the frame and photobombed a whole reel. It was like two four-year-olds at a wedding. They were giggling, and laughing, and you can see the bond these two had — they’d only known each other for a couple of months, but you can see how friendly they are. It was an incredible couple of minutes".
