While on Wednesday's Inside The Actor's Studio, Oscar nominee Amy Adams broke down when talking about her former Doubt and The Master costar Philip Seymour Hoffman.
"I wish you all could get the chance to work with him," the emotional actress told Lipton along with the audience of aspiring actors at Pace University in New York City. The interview was conducted on Feb. 5, just one day before Hoffman's star-studded funeral.
Getting overwhelmed, Amy apologized, "Sorry, I really... I just really loved him and I know so many people did. And I just don't know how much more I can talk about it right now. Sorry."
The pair first became friends when they filmed the 2008 drama Doubt, and then continued their friendship when they starred together in the 2012 film, The Master.
"He was beautiful," she said, as her voice trembled. "He's a beautiful spirit and he had this unique ability to see people, to really see them - not look through them - he just really saw people. And he will be missed."
The 39-year-old is currently nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal in American Hustle.
