Philip Seymour Hoffman Leaves Rehab, Sought Help for Heroin Abuse
Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Oscar-winning actor known for his work in Moneyball, Doubt and The Master, recently checked himself out of a substance abuse center to help him stop sniffing heroin.
TMZ reports that Hoffman, who was nominated for an Oscar last year for his role in "The Master," had substance abuse problems over two decades ago that recently resurfaced.
Hoffman had been using heroin for about a week when he realized things were spiraling downward, TMZ reports.
The actor won an Oscar for his riveting turn in the 2005 film Capote, and he will appear later this year in the second installment of the Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire.
