NEW YORK (AP) -- Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Ethan Hawke, Amy Adams and Ellen Burstyn have paid their respects to Philip Seymour Hoffman, an actor widely considered among the best of his generation.

The list of mourners also included Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Joaquin Phoenix, Louis C.K., Mary Louise Parker, John Slattery, Jerry Stiller, Marisa Tomei, Spike Lee, Diane Sawyer and her director husband, Mike Nichols.

The 46-year-old Hoffman was found dead Sunday of an apparent heroin overdose in his apartment.
