Philip Seymour Hoffman – The King of Uncool

Philip-Seymour-Hoffman_lI was pretty shocked when the news broke about Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death, which came as a surprise to me because celebrity deaths don’t usually have that much of an effect on me.

I mean really, who are celebrities to us? We never hang out with them, we never get to find out what they’re really like, we just project ourselves onto them and think we know them when we don’t actually have a clue.

And yet I actually was genuinely saddened by Hoffman’s death. Firstly because he leaves behind a wife and three kids, but secondly because he was a phenomenal actor who had an uncanny ability to connect with his audience.
