Adams breaks down over Hoffman.

Amy Adams has broken down while talking about late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman during a new interview.

The actress - who worked with Hoffman on Charlie Wilson's War, The Master and Doubt - was overcome with emotion when she was asked about the actor during a chat on Inside The Actors Studio.

Struggling to hold back the tears, she told host James Lipton and the audience of aspiring actors: "Gosh, I wish you all could get the chance to work with him. He was beautiful. He's a beautiful spirit and he had this unique ability to see people, to really see them - not look through them - he just really saw people.

And he will be missed. Sorry, I really... I just really loved him and I know so many people did. And I just don't know how much more I can talk about it right now. Sorry."

Later Amy, 39, broke down again when talking about starring with Hoffman and Meryl Streep in Doubt, saying they were "
amazing to work with".

Both Meryl and Philip have this ability to create... I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," she said, as she started to cry. "To create a world - which as an audience you get to experience that - but you get to experience that in the room acting with them as well. And it's transformative."

Hoffman, 46, was found dead on February 2 of an apparent heroin overdose in his apartment in New York.

Earlier this month Amy was one of several stars who attended the actor's private funeral in Manhattan.
