Philip Seymour Hoffman Leaves Rehab After Snorting Heroin
Now that he's gotten clean, Philip Seymour Hoffman is coming clean about his recent 10-day stint in rehab. The Oscar-winning Capote actor tells TMZ he entered a 10-day treatment program on Tuesday, May 14. He credits "a great group of friends and family" for encouraging him to seek help.
Hoffman says he struggled with substance abuse in the past and was sober for 23 years before he relapsed more than a year ago. According to the site, he began using prescription pills and later began snorting heroin. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actor says he only snorted heroin for about a week before deciding to turn his life around.
The 45-year-old actor is reportedly back to work filming a movie in Europe. Hoffman is father to son Cooper, 10, and daughters Tallulah, 6, and Willa, 4, with costume designer Mimi O'Donnell.
