It was a cold but sunny day Friday as friends and family of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman gathered at St. Ignatius Loyola church on Manhattan's East Side to attend the actor's funeral.
Well-wishers lined the streets outside the church, as A-list friends of Hoffman and his girlfriend of 14 years, Mimi O'Donnell, entered the church for the noon service.

Afterwards, a group of pallbearers brought the actor's coffin down the church steps and into a waiting hearse as O'Donnell and the couple's three children tearfully watched.
Meryl Streep was seen hugging news anchor Diane Sawyer. Julianne Moore, Amy Adams, and Michelle Williams all hid behind dark sunglasses.
Ben Stiller, Joaquin Phoenix, Ethan Hawke, John Slattery, Spike Lee, Marisa Tomei, Chris Rock, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale and Justin Theroux were also seen leaving the church.
According to reports, heavy security kept strict tabs on the guest list, and anyone not approved ahead of time was denied admittance.
A day earlier, Hoffman's family held a wake at Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home where many of the same celebrities came out to pay their respects.
"Philip's family were the first attendees to arrive," said an eyewitness. "Philip's assistant also came to say goodbye."
Due to an inconclusive autopsy, the actor's official cause of death still remains a mystery, though he was reportedly found with a syringe in his arm and close to 70 bags of heroin were found in his apartment.
"At this point we did the exam and we have arrived at the point that the cause and manner of death are pending on further studies," the medical examiner's office said in a statement to Closer. "We are waiting for those to come back."
