As Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s death is still being mourned by his fans and the acting community, two of his fellow thespians recently honored his life and work. During her acceptance speech for Best Actress at the BAFTA’s last week, Cate Blanchett dedicated the award to Hoffman, saying “Your monumental talent, your generosity, and your unflinching quest for truth not only in art, but in life will be missed not only be me, but by so many people.”
Amy Adams also remembered Hoffman in an emotional interview with James Lipton on Inside the Actor’s Studio. Adams and Hoffman worked together on Charlie Wilson’s War, Doubt, and The Master, the latter two earning them both Oscar nominations. The interview was recorded only a few days after Hoffman’s death, and it’s incredibly moving to watch Adams talk through her tears about her co-star. You can watch both videos after the jump.
