Philip Seymour Hoffman's funeral has just begun -- and the church is jam-packed with the late actor's famous friends  ... including Cate Blanchett, Spike Lee, Louis C.K., Ethan Hawke, and Ellen Burstyn.

The private funeral service for family and friends is now underway at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in NYC -- the same church where Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Aaliyah's funerals were held.

All told, roughly 400 people were expected to attend the ceremony.

As we reported, 46-year-old Hoffman was found dead Sunday from an apparent heroin overdose. He is survived by his longtime partner Mimi O'Donnell and 3 young children.

A larger memorial service is in the works for later this month.

Very sad that he died, but people are dying everyday because of heroin 1 famous person drops and not only do we glorify him for it but the city stops until the people who sold it to him are found. What about everyone else who has died because of this or are they just shoved in the ground and forgotten cause they are nobody...shame

They will all go to her funeral but no one thought to tell the junky before he died that he had 3 kids to think of and he should get help. WOW what a great bunch of friends I guess it does make for good press to show up for a funeral that everyone is watching.

Wow, Spike Lee is extremely offensive. You go to a funeral of someone that is supposed to be a friend...and you bring headphones ?
