The image was eerie then, devastating now.

Philip Seymour Hoffman looks chillingly vacant in this tintype photo he posed for at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 19, just two weeks before his death Sunday from an apparent heroin overdose.

Photographer Victoria Will took this portrait while Hoffman was promoting A Most Wanted Man with costars Willem Dafoe and Rachel McAdams.

Despite the somber look of the image, Will tells PEOPLE that Hoffman appeared to be "having a great time that day."

"He just was a regular guy," says Will. "Very approachable."

Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs Movie Prep Caused Hospitalization

For Ashton Kutcher preparing to play Apple co-founder Steve Jobs meant chowing down on – fittingly – apples.

The jOBS star, 34, followed a fruit-only diet to get into character as the late visionary for the biopic, which premiered Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival.

But channeling Jobs's reported diet took a toll on Kutcher's health: Two days before filming began, he was admitted to a hospital for pancreas problems, according to USA Today.

Ashton Kutcher's much-hyped movie jOBS premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, and the star was on hand – minus girlfriend Mila Kunis – for all the festivities.

Kutcher was one of the first to arrive at the official after party, hosted by Nur Khan Presents NK on Main Street for the cast and filmmakers and sponsored by Red Touch Media.

Kutcher was captivated by a floor-to-ceiling portrait of late Apple visionary Steve Jobs, whom Kutcher portrays in the film. Guests were quick to snap a photo of the actor admiring the subject of his role.

The new biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher in a nerdy beard premiered at the Sundance Film Festival Friday to an early round of mixed reviews.

The Two and a Half Men star won respectful praise for tackling such an iconic role in jOBS, but indications are that this apparently adulatory portrait of the techno-genius is not The Social Network for computers.

Pretty Little Liars' Troian Bellisario 'Totally in Love' with Boyfriend at Sundance

Troian Bellisario may have been at Sundance for her new film C.O.G. but the Pretty Little Liars star also used the work trip as a chance for quality time with actor boyfriend Patrick J. Adams.

"You can tell she is totally in love and so is he," an onlooker tells PEOPLE of the happy couple, who were holding hands at the TR Suites Lipton Lounge Sunday. "They sort of finish each other's sentences."

The festival date nights for Bellisario and Suits star Adams started on Saturday with an intimate dinner at PAX Sundance where they played shuffleboard and Word With Friends. After dinner the couple got social and danced the night away at TAO Nightclub at Village at the Lift.

"They looked super cute and happy together! It looked like they were having a really good time," says one TAO partier.

Their snowy vacation continued Sunday with Adams waiting patiently as Bellisario got her hair done at the Dove Color Care Salon.

"He stopped in at the front of the Suites and said 'I'm meeting my girlfriend,'" an onlooker says. "He was very good natured and quiet – he didn't want to interrupt her while getting her hair done."

Later that evening, the freshly coiffed Bellisaro and Adams headed to the GLAAD premiere party for her film C.O.G., based on the writings of David Sedaris.
