Philip Seymour Hoffman Cory Monteith Connection Through Addiction

Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Greenwich Village apartment with a needle still in his arm and surrounded by bags of heroin on Sunday February 2; the second actor to die from this drug, Cory Monteith died last year on July 13 both men are connected through a singular problem; addiction. There was 15 years between them, Monteith was 31 years-old when he died and Hoffman 46. One was on his way up and Hoffman was well established as a masterful actor on stage and screen. The common theme that both shared was their addictive craving for drugs and their solitary deaths.

    1. Don’t know. It is odd that he got back into it so heavily after going into rehab last year for snorting the stuff. To have around 70 bags laying around his apartment adds to the confusion. I still believe that, like the younger Monteith, he overestimated his body’s tolerance level. So sad that such a brilliant actor’s personal demons destroyed him. 😦
