Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction
Philip Seymour Hoffman's partner of over 14 years remembers when she first noticed that something was "brewing" with the actor.

Mimi O’Donnell opens up in a moving essay for Vogue's January issue about first meeting Hoffman at a theater in New York City in 1999 and the beautiful love story that ensued, which included the two parenting three children, Cooper, 14, Tallulah, 11 and Willa, 9. "When I look back at how close we all were, I wonder whether Phil somehow knew that he was going to die young," she reflects. "He never said those words, but he lived his life as if time was precious."

After being sober for well over a decade, O'Donnell says Hoffman was faced with a lot of trials all at once, which led to him returning to drugs and ultimately dying from a heroin overdose in early February 2014 at the age of 46.

Ryan Gosling Transforms Into Neil Armstrong on 'First Man' Set -- See the Pic!

Ryan Gosling Transforms Into Neil Armstrong on 'First Man' Set -- See the Pic!
Ryan Gosling is ready for liftoff, buzz cut and all.

The First Man star was spotted on set of the upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic on Wednesday, rocking a markedly shorter hairdo in the style of the iconic astronaut, who became the first human to set foot on the moon in 1969. Armstrong died in 2012.

The film, which reunites Gosling with La La Landdirector Damien Chazelle, is set to premiere Oct. 12, 2018, and also stars Clare Foy, Jon Bernthal and Corey Stoll, who will portray Buzz Aldrin.

Gosling was quite a trouper, too. Despite shooting a hot, sunny summer scene, the actual temperature in Atlanta, Georgia, where the movie is being filmed, is 28 degrees! The 37-year-old actor had a bathrobe and a hot water bottle to keep warm between takes.

The movie has been shooting since October, when Gosling was spotted channeling Armstrong -- with longer hair -- while showing off his lasso skills.
