Amy Adams is still grieving the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

On Wednesday's episode of "Inside the Actors Studio," the "American Hustle" star broke down when host James Lipton asked her about the late Oscar winner.

"Gosh, I wish you could all get a chance to work with him. He was beautiful, a beautiful spirit. And he has this unique ability to see people, really see them," she said, as she started to cry. 

"And he will be missed. Sorry, I really... I just really loved him and I know so many people did, and I just don't know how much more I can talk about it now. Sorry," the actress added.

Adams and Hoffman worked together in 2012's "The Master" and 2008's "Doubt."

The 39-year-old star praised her "Doubt" costars, Hoffman and Meryl Streep, for their talent, before breaking down in tears again. Check out the video above to see Amy's emotional tribute.
