Philip Seymour Hoffman gave two of his last interviews to The Hollywood Reporter at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
On Jan. 18, he talked to THR about his film God’s Pocket with first-time director John Slattery and co-star Christina Hendricks. The movie centers on a man who tries to cover up the accidental death of his stepson.

He joked that Slattery, who made his directorial debut with the movie, was drinking on set like his Mad Men character Roger Sterling and weighed in on his first time at Sundance. He said he was 25 and attending the festival to support a friend who was appearing in a short.
“I remember sleeping on a floor somewhere … a bunch of people in a hotel room,” he said.
Asked what relationships he’d developed at Sundance, Hoffman quipped, “Walking down Main Street, I fell in love one Sunday.”

The next day, he shared what drew him to Anton Corbijn‘s A Most Wanted Man, about a Chechen Muslim who illegally immigrates to Germany. The film also stars Willem Dafoe and Rachel McAdams, with whom he jokes around before the interview starts.
Hoffman was found dead Sunday in his West Village apartment at age 46.
