  1. Fucking loved him in movies. One of my favorite supporting actors

    Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead Sunday afternoon in his New York City apartment, a law-enforcement official said.

    The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine exact cause of death. The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46 years old, was found dead at his apartment at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

    Mr. Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 2005 film, "Capote."

    The actor was found in the bathroom of his fourth floor apartment in the Pickwick House around 11:15 a.m. by a screenwriter, who called 911, the official said.
  2. Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of an apparent drug overdose — in the bathroom with a hypodermic needle still in his arm — inside a Greenwich Village home on Sunday morning, cops said.

    A personal assistant found Hoffman’s body in an apartment at 35 Bethune St. and called 911 around 11:30 a.m, sources said.

    Cops are at the scene and are investigating, sources said.

    In 2006, Hoffman publicly admitted that he nearly succumbed to substance abuse graduating from NYU’s drama school, but got sober in rehab.

    “It was all that (drugs and alcohol), yeah. It was anything I could get my hands on…I liked it all,” he told “60 Minutes” as the time.

    Last year, Hoffman reportedly checked himself into rehab again for ten days after relapsing in 2012.

    TMZ said he began using prescription pills, then snorted heroin for about a week before realizing he needed help.
  3. Am I the only person who loses respect for people when they die of overdosing?

    Heroin what a shame, it was known that he has used it before in small doses for creative reasons.

    Probably my favorite comedy moment from the man himself tbh, atleast top 3.

  12. Who is he.
  13. He was a relatively popular supporting actor, he look at his IMDb or wikipedia page it's flooded with plenty of known movies where you would've seen him in. I lost count somewhere around 30/35

    movies of which I've seen him in.
  14. Dude Almost Famous was the GOAT movie for me when I first watched it.
  15. Same, that is one of my favorite scenes of all time still

  18. How about some for his 3 children then

    I'm sympathetic for him because it sounds like it's something he struggled with his entire life.
  19. It's very sad for the children that their dad was selfish. I don't buy drug addiction or alcoholism as a disease. There's plenty of people willing to help but if you don't care enough to help yourself then I don't care.
