'God's Pocket' is a celebration of Philip Seymour Hoffman's life, according to Christina Hendricks
Christina Hendricks says new film 'God's Pocket' feels like a celebration of co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman's life.
The new flick - which was directed by Christina's 'Mad Men' co-star John Slattery - was one of the last Seymour Hoffman made before his death in February, and Hendricks said it was a privilege to appear alongside such an esteemed actor.
She said: "Working with Philip was amazing. He's an extraordinary, extraordinary actor and I felt very, very lucky to get to work with him.
"I know Philip was proud of the film, and he told me that he was. I think while we're still talking about it and we're showing it to people, he feels very present to me.
"So I guess I'm trying to think of it as a celebration of the experience and the pride of the film that we made."
This sentiment was echoed by director John Slattery, who said: "Working with Phil, it's hard to describe in a word. He's a remarkable talent and inclusive and collaborative and a brilliant, brilliant actor."
'God's Pocket' opens in cinemas on August 8.
