Oscar-winning paleface Philip Seymour Hoffman just got out of a detox facility for a drug problem that started with prescription drugs and “recently escalated to snorting heroin,” according to TMZ.
In 2006, Hoffman told 60 Minutes that he sniffed, injected and shallowed a whole mess of narcotics in his college days at NYU over two decades ago. “It was all that [drugs and alcohol], yeah. It was anything I could get my hands on … I liked it all,” he said. “I went [to rehab], I got sober when I was 22 years old.”
The recent lapse lasted only a week, and he’s already back to work on a movie overseas.
Hoffman is set to appear in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this fall. (Holler if you’re excited!)
