Meryl Streep: Philip Seymour Hoffman Death: Actress Left Rocked by His Demise, Source Says

[imagebrowser id=1387] MERYL Streep has been left rocked by the shock death of her friend and colleague Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The actor was found dead in his New York apartment Sunday at the age of 46, drawing tributes from friends and colleagues across the film industry.

Streep and Hoffman have worked together a number of times — on stage in 2002 for The Public Theater’s revival of Anton Chekhov‘s The Seagull — and in the 2008 movie Doubt, a revolving around the stern principal nun (Streep) of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964 who brings charges of pedophilia against a popular priest (Hoffman).

“To say Meryl is cut up over Philip’s death is an understatement,” a source says.

“She loved working with him, and appreciated what a fine talent he was.

“Meryl could always tell Philip was a tortured soul, but never would have thought his life would end the way it has. She has sent her condolences to his family, and her thoughts are with his three young children and partner Mimi.”

It’s believed PSH had split from his partner at the time of his death.
