The Tragic Death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman

by Thomas Priday

I’ve always wondered why people feel a sense of loss when a celebrity dies. After all, what really separates a celebrity from of homeless man down the street? Neither of them know you, and you don’t really know them.

Today I realised that it can be, and is appropriate to feel a sense of less when a celebrity dies, as I did upon hearing the news of Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s death.

Never has news like this saddened me this much. A brilliant actor.
