Philip Seymour Hoffman’s co-stars pay tribute

Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro is ”so saddened” by Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death. The legendary actor has paid tribute to his Flawless co-star – who was found dead aged 46 of an apparent drugs overdose yesterday – describing him as ”gifted” and a ”wonderful” actor. He said: ”I’m very, very saddened by the passing of Phil. He was a wonderful actor. This is one of those times where you say ‘this just shouldn’t be. He was so young and gifted and had so much going, so much to live for’. My family and I send our deepest condolences to his family.” De Niro was only one of the actor’s co-stars to express their sadness at his passing. Jeff Bridges said, ”I’m so shocked, and so sad hearing of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death. I enjoyed playing with him on The Big Lebowski. He was such a wonderful guy, and so damn talented, a real treasure. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Ides of March actor George Clooney said: ”There are no words. It’s just terrible.”

Tom Hanks, who appeared with Philip in Charlie Wilson’s War praised the Oscar-winning actor’s ”giant talent.” He said in a statement: ”This is a horrible day for those who worked with Philip. He was a giant talent. Our hearts are open for his family.” Gwyneth Paltrow shared a picture of herself, Philip, Jude Law and a female friend in Italy after working on The Talented Mr. Ripley on her Instagram account.

She wrote alongside it: ”Ischia 1998, post dinner, post shooting…Philip was a true genius. #philipseymourhoffman.”

    If he was a genius he wouldn’t throw his life away on drugs and he would appreciate everything he has in his life. People like him make me sick. Whitney Houston, Cory Monteith and everybody else who threw their life away should not be mourned, nor should they be looked up to.

    Procedure: Use a MILD detergetn. Let it sit on the stain 3 5 minutes, then sponge gently and then firmer if needed. Procedure: Allow to sit on stained area for 1 minute and work into the stain with a sponge. Then gently and carefully clean and rinse as above. Be aware that staining chemicals and cleaning agents can affect fabric strength, finish, and color. (In this paragraph, they left out the comment about what to use. Presume they mean mild detergent again.)
