I got the tweet about Phillip Seymore Hoffman's passing yesterday and was just stunned.

I knew Phillip had struggled with addiction for years, but thought after a stint in rehab last year, he had a handle on it. Hoffman was such a talented actor and I LOVED him from the first time I saw him in Twister to just recently in Catching Fire.
Here is what other stars have had to say about his passing:

Tom Hanks: "This is a horible day for those who worked with Philip. He was a giant talent. Our hearts are open for his family''

George Clooney: "There are no words. It's just terrible"

Octavia Spencer: Very sad day! R.I.P. ?#PhillipSeymourHoffman?

Albert Brooks: R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman. One of the greats of his generation.

Rainn Wilson: R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman. One of the greatest, kindest actors who ever lived.

Ellen DeGeneres: Philip Seymour Hoffman was a brilliant, talented man. The news this morning is shocking and sad. My heart goes out to his loved ones.

Jim Carrey: Dear Philip, a beautiful beautiful soul. For the most sensitive among us the noise can be too much. Bless your heart. ;^{

Anna Kendrick: Philip Seymour Hoffman. Unbearably, shockingly, deeply sad. Words fail to describe his life and our loss.

Chelsea Clinton: Very sad to read of Philip Seymour Hoffman's passing. Keeping his family & friends in my thoughts.
