Julianne Moore is a renowned actress known for her portrayals of emotionally troubled women in independent films and blockbusters. Her glory in the Hollywood industry has not only made her a significant figure but has also led to her collaborations with legendary actors and filmmakers. One of Julianne Moore’s collaborations was with Philip Seymour Hoffman, who sadly passed away ten years ago. 

Julianne Moore reflected on working with Philip Seymour Hoffman

During an appearance on SiriusXM’s “This Life of Mine with James Corden,” Moore heaped praise on her Magnolia co-star, paying tribute to his compassion, patience, love, and presence.

She said, “He was amazing. In “Magnolia,” too, he was filled with so much compassion and patience and love and presence, and he was somebody who cared very, very deeply about his work. I think about what it meant to people and how to kind of hold it all, right? How to hold what he was doing, how to hold what the other actor was doing, how to incorporate, I don’t know. He was a very special actor I think and you could feel his humanity when you worked with him. You could feel his presence, his depth of feeling, and his sensitivity. He was extraordinarily sensitive and Jason Robards at the time was older and was not particularly well, and so it was a strange concoction of characters and actions in that room, you know?”

Hoffman was one of the most celebrated actors of all time known for his distinctive supporting and character roles—eccentrics, underdogs, and misfits thanks to his roles in films like Boogie Nights, Happiness, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Hunger Games series, Almost Famous, The Master, Doubt, and more. His talent was also honored by several nominations and achievements. He was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar three times and won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in 2006’s Capote. 

Hoffman was a victim of substance abuse. In a 2006 interview with 60 Minutes, Hoffman revealed he had engaged in drug and alcohol misuse during his time at New York University, saying he had used “anything I could get my hands on. I liked it all.”

After completing his graduation at the age of 22, he entered a drug rehabilitation program and remained sober for 23 years. 

However, in 2012, he returned to using drugs or alcohol and voluntarily admitted himself to a drug rehabilitation program in May 2013 for approximately ten days.

Hoffman was 46 years old when he breathed his last. His death was officially ruled an accident caused by “acute mixed drug intoxication, including heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines, and amphetamine”
