Tragic actor Philip Seymour Hoffman got emotional in one of his final interviews shortly before his untimely death.

The 46-year-old star - who was found dead in New York on Sunday -- spoke to Variety at the Sundance Film Festival just last month to discuss his final film God's Pocket alongside Mad Men stars John Slattery and Christina Hendricks

The dark comedy centers on a man who tries to coverup the accidental death of his stepson.

During the interview the Oscar winner clearly chokes up a little when he discuses his relationship with on-screen wife Hendricks.

"It's a very intimate movie where you have to be vulnerable with each other," he reveals.

The actor did not look particularly healthy when he was photographed at the festival in Park City, Utah, on January 19.

Sadly, it looks like Hoffman died from a suspected overdose at his Manhattan apartment.

The acclaimed star, who had been clean from drugs for over 20 years, went to rehab after a relapse in 2012.

An autopsy on his body will take place on Monday amid reports that he was found with a needle in his arm inside his apartment.
