    Hearing that Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away came as much as a shock to me as to anyone else I'd imagine. We spent some time together only two weeks ago and he seemed in a good place despite some issues he had to deal with. He was not only the most gifted actor I ever worked with (and, judging by the legacy he leaves behind, I am certain I share this with most if not all directors who were fortunate enough to work with him), he had also become an incredibly inspiring and supportive friend. I am so terribly sad as I find it impossible to comprehend what happened today and to collect my thoughts properly. I have to think about Mimi [O'Donnell] and the children and I wish them much strength coping with the loss of this truly great man as a father and partner.
