It was a sad day for the friends and family of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman today as they attended the late actor’s funeral in New York City.
Mourners gathered at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola to pay their respects to the Oscar winner, who was found dead in his apartment last weekend. Two of those mourners were Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Williams, who looked to be relying on each other for support.
The Brokeback Mountain co-stars stayed close to each other as they made their way into the services.
Although Jake never got to work with Philip, Michelle was lucky enough to work alongside the actor in Synecdoche, New York. Now that guys, is a weird movie. But that is neither here or there.
I would assume that the loss of a young actor to drugs is hitting Michelle especially hard, as her former fiance and father of her child, Heath Ledger, died in a similar fashion. Guys, I just feel sadness right now. So please allow Jake’s beard and ponytail to bring you a little bit of joy instead.
