Actress Cate Blanchett paid a visit to Philip Seymour Hoffman’s family home on Monday to comfort his estranged girlfriend Mimi O’donnell and their three children following his tragic death on Sunday.
The Blue Jasmine star was dressed in black and appeared a little teary eyed as she was photographed entering the Manhattan pad the actor used to share with his partner of 15 years.
Blanchett, who had befriended Hoffman and his family after co-starring with him in 1999 thriller The Talented Mr. Ripley, was laden with gifts, including a new telescope, which was intended for Hoffman’s eldest child, his 10-year-old son Cooper, according to the New York Daily News.
Hoffman had reportedly moved out of the apartment and into his own rented home after suffering a drug relapse last year, which prompted him to seek help in rehab after 23 years of sobriety.
The 46 year old was found dead from a suspected overdose at the Greenwich Village rental on Sunday.
