Academy award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead yesterday of a suspected drug overdose at his Manhattan apartment. Hoffman was one of the finest actors of his generation and his performances in movies were loved by movie-lovers throughout the world. A man whose extraordinary acting talents were uniformly praised by his peers and those who worked with him, Hoffman was very un-Hollywood in his personal life and preferred to live like a normal citizen, away from the frenzy of stardom. He is survived by his partner, costume designer Mimi O’Donnel and his three children. Previously, the late actor has spoken about his struggles with the substance abuse in an interview in 2006 and admitted his affinity for drugs which he constantly struggled with. However, his tryst with drugs never came in the way of his performances which he inhabited on screen. He won an Academy Award in 2005 for his portrayal of American author, Truman Capote in the movie Capote. Not only this, but he also got three Academy Award nominations in the following movies too; Charlie Wilson’s War (2008), Doubt (2009) and The Master which released previous year.
