Amy Adams Breaks Down on Bravo Over Death of Philip Seymour Hoffman

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Days after Cate Blanchett paid tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman via her acceptance speech at the BAFTAs, another colleague, Amy Adams, appeared on Inside the Actor's Studio and broke down when the topic of her former co-star was broached.

The Academy Award nominee appeared opposite Hoffman twice: first in 2008’s Doubt and again on 2012’s The Master.

"I wish you all could get a chance to work with him,” the actress said on the Bravo series.

“He was beautiful. He’s a beautiful spirit and he, he had this unique ability to see people."

Amy Adams, fighting off tears, then added:

"He will be missed. 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 now. Sorry."

No apologies are necessary, of course.

Hoffman passed away at the age of 46 from a heroin overdose. He left behind three young children and left his entire estate to his partner and their mother, Mimi O'Donnell.

Here's a tribute to his life in photos:

Unbeleivable Bonnie! You obviously have not a clue as to what an addict goes thru every day of their life. You don't wake up and say "hmmmm, I think I choose to be an addict for the rest of my life. Yeah, that will work for me". You wake up saying "just for today, I will not use", and pray that you get thru it. It's not a choice, you don't choose addiction, it chooses you, and sometimes, as in PSH case, the demons in his head won and that nite he lost the battle. Yes, to us it looks like he had it all, but we don't know what was going on in his mind that he was trying to numb/block out. I'm a "recovering addict"and will be "recovering" for the rest of my life, as the temptation is always there. I guess i'm one of the lucky ones, maybe. I'm still here for today. So, if you've never been there, don't judge. I feel for his children and partner who will be trying for a long time to understand, let's hope they find peace one day. As for PSH, I hope he has found relief from his struggle, albeit, a sad and untimely way to leave this world.

Seriously people! Enough already. This man had it all, money , fame and most of all, beautiful children !He made a choice. A concious choice to throw it all away and chose drugs. He reaped what he sowed and people that work hard everyday and try to live right are sick and tired of hearing about how wonderful this guy was! He was a piece of crap drug addict and he died like one. Enough said
