Hollywood's best turn out in force to mourn Philip Seymour Hoffman

The Oscar-winning actor’s funeral brought out some of Hollywood’s most distinguished talents including Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep.

Family and close friends bid their final farewells on Friday at a private funeral for actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, whose tragic death of an apparent overdose at the age of 46 robbed the entertainment world of one of its finest talents. Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams, Joaquin Phoenix, Spike Lee, Amy Adams, Justin Theroux, Mary Louise Parker, Ethan Hawke, and Chris Rock were among the Hollywood stars who attended the service at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola on Manhattan’s Upper East Side to mourn the death of the Oscar-winning actor.
