Celebrities such as Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Billy Crudup, Ellen Burstyn and Justin Theroux attended the wake for actor Philip Seymour Hoffman at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel late yesterday (February 6, 2014) in New York City.

Also in attendance were Philip's longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and three children Cooper Hoffman, Willa Hoffman and Tallulah Hoffman.

Hoffman was found dead February 2 of an alleged drug overdose; he was found by a friend in his bathroom with a syringe in his arm.

Adams, who co-starred with Hoffman in two films, Doubt and The Master, was so emotional over his death during her appearance on Inside the Actors Studio this week that she broke down in tears and "couldn't finish most of her sentences," an eyewitness told Us Weekly.

"Amy talked about how he was the greatest actor she had worked with," the eyewitness said, noting that she couldn't tell any stories about him without crying. "She said to the audience of acting students, 'I wish you all could have had the chance to work with him.'"

Mr. Hoffman is definitely one who is gone too soon.
