Philip Seymour Hoffman – RIP

I know this has nothing to do with design, decorating, or Rome/Italy, but Hoffman’s death has hit me like a ton of bricks.

PSH was truly one of the most talented actors of our generation.  Even in big blockbuster tent pole movies, like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, he brought something unique to the screen.

It’s his roles in smaller/indie films that I loved.  I could watch him all day as Freddie Miles in THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY.  Some of the my other favorite roles were in: 25th HOUR, BOOGIE NIGHTS, DOUBT, THE MASTER, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, HAPPINESS, HARD EIGHT, MAGNOLIA, CAPOTE, and ALMOST FAMOUS.

I’m pissed.  This guy was like Daniel Day Lewis.  That level of talent is so rare.  Stupid heroin.

  1. Oh no!! This is terrible news!! He’s one of my favourites. Absolutely brilliant in everything I’ve seen. He had so much more to achieve. Unbelievably sad.

    When the news popped on my mobile from CNN I had to go and read it over and over again. I thought I read the wrong thing, the wrong name, the wrong everything. How could such a talented human being do drugs is beyond me.

    • He was clean for over twenty-three years and recently relapsed. His poor family.

      A LOT of creative people have problems with addiction. Some are able to keep it out of the public eye.
