Philip Seymour Hoffman had little love for L.A. -- at least as far as his last will and testament indicates. In his 2004 will, the Oscar-winning actor gave direction on where he wanted son Cooper, then his only child, to be raised in his absence. Missing from the list was the home of Hollywood. “It is my strong desire ... that my son, Cooper Hoffman, be raised and reside in or near the borough of Manhattan in the state of New York, or Chicago, Illinois, or San Francisco, California,” he wrote in the document, obtained by outlets including TMZ and the New York Post , which has it posted online.
