Laura's co-star in The Savages, Philip Seymour Hoffman, was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar® this year for his role in another movie—Charlie Wilson's War.
Working with this Oscar-winning actor, Laura says, was "absolute heaven."
"He is kind, and warm, and generous and supportive and I felt loved from the minute he was on the set to the minute he left. I missed him terribly when he wasn't around," she says. "He is the best partner an actress could have, without a doubt. I really consider a third of my nomination belonging to Tamara and her script and a third belonging to Phil."
