Ten years before his untimely death, Philip Seymour Hoffman requested in his 2004 will that if he were to die that his one-year-old son be raised in either NYC, Chiciago or San Francisco, according to the will shared on ABC News.

The reason behind this is outlined on pages 11 and 12 of the will:

"It is my strong desire, and direction to my Guardian, 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, and if my Guardian cannot reside in any of such cities, that it is my strong desire, and not direction, that my son, Cooper Hoffman, visit these cities at least twice per year throughout such guardianship. The purpose of this request is so my that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer."

In the time since the will was written, Seymour's longtime girlfriend and he had two more children. His three children currently reside in Manhattan.

Cosmopolitan environment doesn't hurt in the growth of children.

I do not believe he should have a say in where his children are raised. He has abandoned them, rather be high than be a parent. Sorry, but that is how I feel. He had his chance & took another path.
