Philip Seymour Hoffman's Funeral Will Be Held in New York

Philip Seymour Hoffman will be remembered by his friends and family during a private funeral service in New York, which will be held later in the month.

“In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Phil‘s name to two charities that were very close to his heart: The DreamYard Project and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation,” the 46-year-old actor’s rep shared to People. “The family wishes to thank everyone for their continued support and good wishes.”

    @Dess: Heath did not die from heroin you stupid twit. he was taking prescription meds like 98% of the US population does. they are also dangerous and every day someone dies by accident from these meds. just because he was in a movie about heroin doesn’t mean he used it and just because he was in a gay movie didn’t make him gay. You people in these sites are totally ignorant.

    One can’t help wondering about the absurdity and irony of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s funeral, there he was surrounded by all these glamorous photogenic ‘Hollywood friends’ who had come to honor a legend (at a private gathering to boot) and yet in his time of need the actor was literally walking around like a bum, lonely, begging anyone who would listen that he was a ‘junkie’ but to no avail….
