Celebs Remember Philip Seymour Hoffman at His Wake
Philip Seymour Hoffman was remembered by his family and friends at a wake held on Thursday evening (February 6) at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home in New York City.
Many celebrities including Cate Blanchett with husband Andrew Upton, Justin Theroux, Amy Adams with fiance Darren Le Gallo, Michelle Williams, Joaquin Phoenix, Ellen Burstyn, and more attended the wake.
Philip‘s partner Mimi O’Donnell and their three children – Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5 – along with his mom Marilyn O’Connor were in attendance as well.
Amy taped an episode of Inside the Actors Studio the day before and reportedly teared up while talking about Philip, who she worked with in the films Doubt and The Master.
“Amy talked about how he was the greatest actor she had worked with, and couldn’t even tell stories about him without crying,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly. “She said to the audience of acting students ‘I wish you all could have had the chance to work with him.’”
A private funeral service will be held on Friday at the St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church.
