When Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away in February 2014, Olsen and Miller were seen together at the funeral. Miller had worked with Hoffman on the 2005 movie Capote and the two had known each other since childhood. They were both graduates of the 1984 NYSSSA School of Theatre, along with writer Dan Futterman. It was actually at a summer theater camp called Saratoga Springs, where Miller first met Hoffman at age 16.

4. The Couple’s First Sighting Was in Late January 2014

Though Miller and Olsen are said to have started dating in February, the two were spotted having dinner in West Hollywood in late January. Plus, the NY Daily News reports that Olsen spent time with Miller in Los Angeles while he was editing the film Foxcatcher.


5. He Used to Play Chess With Homeless People In the Park Instead of Going to School

Miller is a successful director, producer and cinematographer who actually started out as a comedian and actor. He grew up in the suburbs of New York City, and actually dropped out of NYU, spending more time playing chess with homeless people in the park rather than studying, according to Hollywood.com. Eventually, Miller got together enough money to make his first movie The Cruise.
