everybody loves finger pointing. the dude spoke openly about his addiction issues, even saying if he was young, rich and beautiful it woulda killed him.

his kids might be better off actually.

i can only imagine the anti-drug message having a dad who OD'ed is (as opposed to idolizing a guy who is often high) ..i speak from experience.

 

and not only that, he earned crazy money. they'll be set. plenty more than i could say for most heroin users. and they have a good mom. they'll be ok.

I understand he spoke about his issues in the past and I can't blame him for having problems, I know I have struggled with addiction in my life, but as a father I couldn't forgive myself putting my kid through that.

 

It is a definite shame though, like I said he was a good actor and every time I've seen him interviewed he seemed like a really good bloke, that is the thing with addiction it doesn't care who you are.

an excerpt:

 

If Philip Seymour Hoffman put that needle in his arm, as has been reported, I doubt he was thinking about his artistic responsibility. He might not have even been thinking about his children. He was likely just overwhelmed by his own pain, and feeling guilty about trying to alleviate it — especially after 23 years of sobriety. Can you imagine how crushing that pain must be to do such a thing? It may have seemed from the outside that he "had it all," but pain knows no class, no race, no gender — and addiction doesn't either.
