Amy Adams Breaks Down When Talking About Philip Seymour Hoffman: "I Just Really Loved Him"

Feb 21, 2014 10:15 AM

While on Wednesday's Inside The Actor's Studio, Oscar nominee Amy Adams broke down when talking about her former Doubt and The Master costar Philip Seymour Hoffman.

"I wish you all could get the chance to work with him," the emotional actress told Lipton along with the audience of aspiring actors at Pace University in New York City. The interview was conducted on Feb. 5, just one day before Hoffman's star-studded funeral.

Getting overwhelmed, Amy apologized, "Sorry, I really... I just really loved him and I know so many people did. And I just don't know how much more I can talk about it right now. Sorry."

The pair first became friends when they filmed the 2008 drama Doubt, and then continued their friendship when they starred together in the 2012 film, The Master.

"He was beautiful," she said, as her voice trembled. "He's a beautiful spirit and he had this unique ability to see people, to really see them - not look through them - he just really saw people. And he will be missed."

The 39-year-old is currently nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal in American Hustle.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Will Leaves Estate To Ex Mimi O'Donnell, Specifies Instructions For Son

Feb 19, 2014 12:20 PM


This is still so surreal!

Philip Seymour Hoffman left his entire estate to his estranger partner Mimi O'Donnell in a will drafted back in 2004, TMZ reports.

The document also revealed that the late actor requested his son Cooper (his only child at the time) be raised in Manhattan so he could grow up around culture and the arts. If living in New York City wasn't an option for whatever reason, the Oscar winner requested that Chicago or San Francisco be the alternatives, or that the now 10-year-old at least visited the cities twice a year.

Nowhere in the will was there a mention of Hollywood, which makes it pretty clear PSH wanted his offspring to stay far away from Los Angeles.

The former couple went on to have daughters Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5, so these stipulations probably apply to them as well.

At least his family will be financially taken care of.

Report: Philip Seymour Hoffman Was Caught In A Love Triangle Before His Death

Feb 12, 2014 02:15 PM


This is sad that such personal details of his private life are coming to light!

Philip Seymour Hoffman was apparently trapped in a love triangle in the months before his tragic death, The New York Post reports.

According to law enforcement sources, the actor's private diary revealed he was "caught in between" his longtime love and mother of his children Mimi O'Donnell and an unnamed woman, and his infidelity was a contributing factor to O'Donnell's request he move out of the family apartment.

The Oscar winner also wrote about his embarrassment over falling off the wagon after maintaining his sobriety for more than 23 years.

The 46-year-old wrote how he was haunted by "demons" and how he felt "ashamed that he was going out and hanging out and drinking."

While some of his sentiments were coherent, others seemed to have been written while he was under the influence.

    "It's stream of consciousness and difficult to follow. In one line, he refers to 'Frank who always owes money,' and on the same page, he writes about a 15-year-old girl from Texas," a source added.

At least he's at peace now.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman Admitted To Being A Heroin Addict Two Weeks Before Death

Feb 4, 2014 08:05 AM


We're still shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, but perhaps there were signs just as recently as last month that the actor was not doing well.

Hoffman spoke with magazine publisher John Arundel at the Sundance Film Festival just two weeks ago, and he chatted about his struggles with substance abuse. Arundel told the New York Post, "He said, 'I'm a heroin addict.'" Arundel added that he didn't immediately recognize the actor, and it was only after Hoffman removed his hat that he had any idea who he was. Arundel said that Hoffman candidly stated, "'I just got out of rehab.' Obviously, he wanted people to know he was in recovery mode."

It's not clear whether Hoffman was using heroin at the film festival, but as far as his appearance, another source tells Us Weekly, "He didn't look like someone who took care of himself." Hoffman was not in the mood to promote his new film A Most Wanted Man, and he even got into an altercation with a photographer.

Hoffman's body was discovered in the bathroom of his West Village NYC apartment on Sunday. Authorities reportedly found the 46-year-old actor with a needle in his arm and recovered 65 bags of heroin at the scene.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Body Removed From His Apartment By NYC Medical Examiner

Feb 2, 2014 09:02 PM

Philip Seymour Hoffman's body was removed from his New York apartment Sunday evening after he was found dead by a friend at 11:30am early in the day.

Hoffman, 46, was found with a syringe in his left forearm, at least two plastic envelopes of what appeared to be heroin near his body, and five empty plastic envelopes in a trash bin, according to law enforcement officials. A friend, David Bar Katz, found Hoffman's body in a Greenwich Village apartment the actor rented for use as an office.

Hoffman battled drug addiction -- he checked into a rehabilitation program last year for prescription pill dependence.

In a statement, Hoffman's family said: "We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Phil and appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone. This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you respect our privacy during this time of grieving."

The actor is survived by his wife and three young children -- a son and two daughters.
