Philip Seymour Hoffman left some pretty intense words behind as he spoke candidly about life, pleasure, and happiness.
“I would definitely say pleasure is not happiness,” he said. I think I kill pleasure. Like I take too much of it, and therefore make it unpleasurable…there is no pleasure I haven’t actually made myself sick on.”
The words spoken by the late actor are creatively used as artistic expression in an interview, which was recorded in 2012. The interview is shown as a part of PBS Digital Studios’ Blank On Blank series, which features animated, celebrity interviews and famous quotes.
Even though the actor tried to make light of a heavy situation, his words will forever haunt whoever hears them. You can sense the pain and unhappiness he was feeling in the PBS video and it puts his untimely death into perspective.
In the interview he stated, “There’s a period of time in your life, when I kind of look back and I’m like, was I happy, or was I just not aware.”
