Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Amy Adams breaks down during an emotional “Inside the Actors Studio” appearance that was taped just days after the death of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Discussing the movie Doubt, in which Adams co-starred with Hoffman, host James Lipton tells the audience, “We’ve arrived at a difficult moment.”

Adams has trouble keeping her composure as she reflects on her late collaborator.

“He was beautiful,” she tells Lipton and the crowd. “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.”

Adams adds, “Sorry, I really… I just really loved him and I know so many people did.”
