Two days after being found dead of an apparent heroin overdose, Philip Seymour Hoffman was remembered by his fellow actors with great admiration Tuesday during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California.
Jared Leto described Hoffman as "a brave and fearless genius" after accepting one of the festival's Virtuoso Awards, which he dedicated to Hoffman.
"Someone who was a compass for us all, and someone who will really be missed," Leto said when answering questions about his Academy-Award-nominated role in Dallas Buyer's Club.
