A Portrait of Philip Seymour Hoffman Taken Only a Month Before His Death

It has been revealed that actor Philip Seymour Hoffman left his entire $35 million fortune to his longtime partner, and the mother of his children, Mimi O’Donnell. New court documents show that Hoffman refused his lawyer’s suggestion to leave money for his children because he didn’t want them to be “trust fund kids”.

Hoffman, an Oscar-winning actor, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment in February at the age of 46 from a heroin overdose.  He had struggled with drug addiction when he was younger and after being clean for 23 years, he checked himself into rehab in May of 2013. According to friends, Hoffman didn’t believe in marriage, but he treated O’Donnell as if she were his wife, and they had been together for 15 years.
