On Thursday evening, those closest to Philip Seymour Hoffman attended his wake to pay respect to the late actor.
An eyewitness outside the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on the Upper East Side in NYC tells Life & Style the 46-year-old’s family and many of his famous friends were there to bid farewell.
Michelle Williams, Justin Theroux, Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Billy Crudup, Ethan Hawke, Ben Stiller, Diane Sawyer, Mike Nichols and Paul Thomas Anderson were among the familiar faces.
Philip’s longtime girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell, arrived at the funeral home located on Madison Ave. earlier with their three children.
“His family were the first to arrive, and Philip’s assistant also came to say goodbye,” the onlooker tells Life & Style.
Dressed in all black, Mimi carried sleeping 5-year-old Willa inside. Her 10-year-old son, Cooper, and 7-year-old daughter, Tallulah, walked in before them.
Philip’s best friend, screenwriter David Katz, soon joined them.
He was the person who found the Capote star dead Sunday of an apparent heroin overdose in his NYC apartment.
