Everyone in Hollywood from Oscar-winning "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence to Jennifer Aniston's beau Justin Theroux has publicly mourned the shocking and sudden death of veteran actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, and the cast and crew of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film are no exception.
Following Hoffman's death from an apparent heroin overdose at the age of 46 Sunday, the erotica film's star, actor Jamie Dornan, shared his condolences for the actor's family and children over social media. "Simply rotten news about Philip Seymour Hoffman," Dornan posted on his official Twitter account Sunday, adding, "Stunning actor, and by all accounts a wonderful man. Thoughts are with his loved ones."
Dornan, 31, wasn't the only member of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" family to share his thoughts on the late actor. "Fifty Shades" co-star Marcia Gay Harden, who will play the role of Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey in the film, also tweeted her condolences Sunday. "Worked w gifted Philip in 'Seagull'… such a powerful actor.. Blessing on this next journey..," Harden posted. One of the film's producers, Dana Brunetti, also shared his condolences via social media Sunday, saying, "So sad to hear about Philip Seymour Hoffman. Such a talented actor."
Dornan, who infrequently tweets from his account, has been busy shooting scenes from the highly anticipated film adaptation of the best-selling E.L. James book "Fifty Shades of Grey" in recent weeks. The actor, who plays the lead role of BDSM-practicing billionaire Christian Grey, was last spotted filming a jogging scene on Jan. 29 in Vancouver, Canada. The film is currently scheduled for a February 2015 U.S. release.
TMZ was the first to report Sunday that Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment. According to new reports, the Oscar-winning "Capote" and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" actor was found with a "needle sticking out of his left arm" and up to 70 bags of heroin in his possession at the time of his death. Following his passing, RadarOnline reported that Hoffman had been known to have been addicted to heroin and the prescription drug Oxycontin, spending up to $10,000 per months on drugs before his death. The actor is survived by his three children: Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.
