Philip Seymour Hoffman's Will Revealed
February 19, 2014
Philip Seymour Hoffman designated in a 2004 will that his longtime girlfriend and mother of his three children should inherit his estate and that his children be raised outside of Hollywood.
In the will made public on Wednesday, the Academy Award-winning actor names Marianne "Mimi" O'Donnell as the sole beneficiary and identifies her as his "friend and companion."
The will also requested that Cooper -- his only son in 2004 who is now 10 years old -- "be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan in the State of New York, or Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California." It adds: "The purpose of this request is so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer."
Hoffman and O'Donnell were together for 14 years and were also parents to two daughters, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.
Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, was found dead on February 2 inside his New York City apartment of an apparent heroin overdose.
