Matt described his experience at the premiere during the press conference, revealing he “was a little overwhelmed last night,” and declared he is grateful and “really glad we’re here this year.”

“We’ll look back and remember launching the film out of Covid. To be in a room with 1,000 other people who are strangers but who are part of the same community because we love the same thing was such a great reminder of why we do this,” he shared.

He also went on to talk about his character on the film, declaring he found the script “to be so beautifully written,” and moved him as a parent.

“Since I’ve had kids, I feel like everything is more available to me emotionally speaking. I don’t have to reach so far. It’s all right there,” Matt added.
