Joaquin Phoenix &

Michelle Williams

United in Death

2/5/2014 3:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joaquin Phoenix and Michelle Williams -- both of whom lost loved ones to ODs -- paid their respects Wednesday to Mimi O'Donnell -- the longtime partner of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Phoenix -- who's brother River Phoenix died from a mixture of heroin and cocaine in 1993 -- paid a visit to O'Donnell's NYC apartment, accompanied by GF Allie Teilz.

Joaquin co-starred with Hoffman two years ago in "The Master."

Williams showed up a short time later.  She co-starred with PSH in "Synecdoche, New York"  in 2008 ... the same year her ex-partner -- Heath Ledger -- was found dead in his apartment from an accidental overdose of Rx meds.

O'Donnell's been receiving a number of well-wishers ... including Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Aniston's fiance, Justin Theroux.

People 'united in death' typically are those who have been 'separated by death' when one dies, then are reunited when the other later passes. You guys are the worst writers in the world, bar absolutely none.

Druggies deserve to die. Drug addiction is a choice.

Ok enough already. He knew he was a bad heroin addict yet kept at it. He had three beautiful children who will now never have a father.

Seems like he had lots of enablers. The fact is that it was his STUPID choice to do heroin and his death is his own doing.

Say a prayer for his children. Sorry, I won't be canonizing him for his self destructive behavior.

It is really strange to think Heath Ledger has been dead for 6 years already. Time flies.

*Whose, you idiots. "Who's" is a contraction for "who is." "Whose" is possessive. And you have writing careers?

Seems Mimi will have a busy week
as half of Hollywood has lost someone to drugs
or are doing drugs!
and sadly some cant visit this week ...because they locked up are in the 'royal suite' at rehab.
while it is a devastating situation for his family ...
& i do feel compassion for them
but unfortunately doing hard drugs is like playing
Russian roulette...
its only a matter of time

Heath Ledger was known to be a substance abuser but it was not widely reported then like every move Bieber makes today. And he most likely didn't mean to die but he didn't accidentally take those pills.

Never heard of either one of them.
