It's been nearly three weeks since Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away (read our tribute to the amazing actor right here), and we still still can't believe he's gone. The man left a gaping hole in the acting world, and plenty of his colleagues and friends have been shaken up by his passing. One such close friend, actress Amy Adams, recently appeared on the Bravo series "Inside the Actors Studio" (the only show worth watching on that wretched channel), and when discussing her role alongside Hoffman in the film Doubt, she was reduced to tears and an emotional tribute to the actor who was also a great friend.
Here's the clip from "Inside the Actors Studio" with Amy Adams (via SlashFilm):
As you can see, Adams is already emotional when the film is brought up, because she can't possibly discuss the film without thinking about working with Hoffman. It's truly heartbreaking to hear these words not just from writers like myself who really only knew Hoffman from his work (though that kind of impact shows just how influential Hoffman was as an actor and a man), but from someone who spent substantial time with him enough to make this kind of connection. Our hearts are still hurting from this loss, and we can't imagine how all his friends and family still feel, but his legacy will influence endless generations of artists.
