NEW YORK (AP) - Philip Seymour Hoffman built a career in Hollywood, but his will shows he thought childhood was best spent in New York City, Chicago or San Francisco and he wanted his son to grow up in or near them.
The Oscar-winning actor was found dead Feb. 2 in his Manhattan apartment of an apparent heroin overdose. His will was filed Wednesday.
The will was signed in 2004, when only the eldest of his three children was born. It says he wanted his son to at least visit those three cities regularly to take in their "culture, arts and architecture."
Papers filed with the will value Hoffman's estate simply at "$500,000-plus." The estate is bequeathed largely to his longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, with a trust fund for their son. The papers also note the boy's two younger sisters.
