Amy Adams shed some major tears during an interview with James Lipton on Inside The Actors Studio Wednesday night. With a looming Oscar win and fiercely successful film, American Hustle, it's hard to imagine Adams doing anything but smiling. Unfortunately, when Lipton raised questions about the sudden death of her former co-star, Adams got emotional over Philip Seymour Hoffman. In addition to his award-winning talent, the actress praised his uncanny ability to get personal.
"Gosh, I wish you could all get a chance to work with him. He was beautiful, a beautiful spirit. And he has this unique ability to see people, really see them," Adams told the audience of acting students during the interview.
Adams starred alongside Hoffman in two films throughout her career. She first worked with him on the set of Doubt in 2008 and again four years later in The Master in 2012. Like many other of his fellow actors and actresses, his drug overdose from heroin at the beginning of February came as the ultimate shock and sent emotional waves through Hollywood's most elite circles.
"He will be missed. Sorry, I really...I just really loved him and I know so many people did, and I just don't know how much more I can talk about it now. Sorry."
