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.
