Amy Adams Emotional Remembering Philip Seymour Hoffman On 'Actors Studio'

Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman shared the screen in 'Doubt', 'Charlie Wilson's War', and 'The Master'.

So it was understandable when the actress became emotional when host James Lipton asked her about the late Oscar winner on 'Inside the Actors Studio'.

"We've arrived at a difficult moment, of course, for you, for me, for the craft that we love, for the world in which we live," Lipton explained. "Fourteen years ago, I brought Philip Seymour Hoffman to this stage with the prediction that he would become the greatest actor of his generation."

"Gosh, I wish you all could get the chance to work with him. He was beautiful. 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 actress said through tears. "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."

A moment later, Adams expanded on why she valued Hoffman as much as she did: "They were amazing to work with. Again, I say the things that I value about actors -- there's talent, there's skill -- but without work ethic, without that generosity of spirit to take people with you on that brilliant journey that you take."

"Both Meryl and Philip have this ability to create. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," she said, crying into her hands. "To create a world -- which as an audience you get to experience that -- but you get to experience that in the room acting with them as well. And it's transformative."
