Exclusive: Funeral Home Says Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Funeral Will Be Private



HipHollywood has learned that Philip Seymour Hoffman will be laid to rest on Friday afternoon in New York.

The Frank E. Campell Funeral home tells HH that the services, which will reportedly take place at St. Ignatius of Loyola will be “private.” According to reports, a private wake for the late actor will be held on Thursday at the funeral home.

The Academy Award-winning actor died on Sunday morning of an apparent drug overdose. Hoffman, 46, was found dead in the bathroom of his 4th floor Manhattan apartment with a hypodermic needle stuck in his arm. According to reports, 70 baggies of heroin, 50 unopened, were later found in the actor’s apartment, some with an ‘Ace of Hearts’ stamp on it.

Philip, who won an Academy Award in 2005 for his role in Capote, has struggled with substance abuse in the past and according to reports remained clean for 23 years before taking a dive last year.

“It was known that he was struggling to stay sober and girlfriend Mimi O’Donnell had given him some tough love and told him he needed some time away from the kids and to get straight again,” a source told the New York Post.

Hoffman had three children with costume designer Mimi O’Donnell; Cooper, 10; Tallulah 7, and Willa, 5.


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
