I hope you never make a mistake in your life.
We all make mistakes but most of us don't choose to shoot up heroin. Only a corrupt soul would go down that road.

ah, to be so nave...

Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the best, IMO. Better put Paul Thomas Anderson on suicide watch, because he just lost his go-to actor

It says here Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead that "Investigators at the scene found a syringe in his arm and an envelope containing what is believed to be heroin."

it makes me so sad when i hear stories like this. he was clean for such a long time, he knew that heroin is extremely addicting and that nothing good would come out of getting back into it. i wonder what would make him even think to do heroin at this point in his life. married, young kids, acting career seemed to be doing well. of course, we don't know what was going on in his head or his life. but heroin is so awful, and you know that he knew that. addicts don't do heroin recreationally. well...no one does heroin recreationally. he had to have known that taking that first shot would lead to bad bad things. just so sad. i feel for his family and loved ones.

Self destruction by those who have everything going for them.

Amazing. Obviously a good career, three children, does not cure an addiction.

He could have reached out...
I guess on the surface he appeared to have everything but no one really knows what problems people have. Most people have battles in life. A lot of actors seem to have substance abuse issues but then again so do people from all walks of life. Celebrities are in the limelight so can't hide a lot of their problems.

It is very sad and such a loss of a great talent.

Just how exactly are you defining the word "corrupt" in this instance? Because you don't seem to be using the same definition that everyone else uses.

As an aside... man, that had to be some extremely strong dope. For it to kill him before the needle was even out of his arm is very unusual; it takes at least 15 to 30 seconds before the full force of the shot hits you, and most dopers have the needle out pretty quickly after it's empty. I wonder if he got ahold of some stuff that was cut with fentanyl. Just goes to show, you never know what you're getting or who did what to it before you got it.

I know someone who was in drama school with him and I had no idea. She said everyone talked about how talented he was and knew he would go far. God bless him. He was always on my a list of truly talented people.
