From an admiring but somewhat brash, straight-from-the- shoulder profile of Philip Seymour Hoffman by David Edel- stein in the 1.15 New York Times. Interesting Hoffman quote: “There are certain jobs, in certain environments, when I’m not as scared. So, therefore, I am who I am, which I think is a pretty decent person. But if I’m struggling, if I feel like I’m falling short, I’m incredibly hard on myself. And when you’re in front of a camera and in front of people, that’s a very vulnerable place to be. I can become difficult. But I’m not demanding. I’m not the guy who’s not coming out of his trailer. I’m definitely the guy [who] will start to swear very loudly at myself.”
