We’ve been publishing quite a bit about the late Philip Seymour Hoffman and deservedly so. Not only was his death shocking and untimely, he was truly a legend in the making in Hollywood. The film industry lost one of their unique talents last weekend.
Amy Adams is on a meteoric rise of her own kind right now. She also was fortunate enough to work with Hoffman while he was alive. This week Adams made a New York City appearance on Inside the Actors Studio and the subject of Hoffman came up. According to a source close to US Weekly,
“James Lipton asked her about working with Philip on Doubt and The Master… It hit a nerve with her,” the insider tells Us. “[Adams] was sobbing and couldn’t finish most of her sentences. Amy talked about how he was the greatest actor she had worked with, and couldn’t even tell stories about him without crying,” the eyewitness recalls. “She said to the audience of acting students ‘I wish you all could have had the chance to work with him.'”
Adams first worked with Hoffman in 2008 on the film Doubt. They both received Oscar Nominations in 2009 for their performances. Four years later they worked together again on the film The Master. Once again, they were recognized by the Academy for their efforts.
Adams isn’t the only star expressing her sadness over Hoffman’s death. All of Hollywood is morning the loss of a truly great actor. You can catch Adams’ interview on February 18th on Bravo.
