Philip Seymour Hoffman's friends and family bid the actor farewell at his funeral today.
Many of the late star's famous friends, including Jake Gyllenhaal and Meryl Streep, were seen entering the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in the Upper East Side of NYC on Friday, Feb. 7.
"The funeral was a large but private affair. Police closed off the sidewalk in front of the church as well as the sidewalk along either side and across the street," an eyewitness tells Life & Style.
"Guests had to go through two rounds of security."
People began arriving around 10:30 a.m., with the bulk of attendees entering the church between 11 a.m. and 12 noon.
"Justin Theroux arrived solo and looked very somber," the onlooker tells the mag.
"He took a moment to hug actor Justin Long and another older man, it was pretty emotional. The embraces were more than just a greeting, they were definitely grieving."
The service concluded at about 1:30 p.m. However, several mourners gathered outside the church and hugged and chatted as they waited for their cars to pick them up.
"It was really beautiful. It was great," one male attendee tells Life & Style about the service, another guest described it as "very sincere."
The funeral took place after loved ones paid their respect at a wake for the 46-year-old on Thursday evening.
Philip was laid to rest five days after he was found dead from an apparent heroin overdose in his NYC apartment on Feb. 2.
He's survived by his longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children.
