Philip Seymour Hoffman

Nods Off On Plane After Drinking Binge

Philip Seymour Hoffman was out like a light minutes after boarding a plane in Georgia last week ... after he was seen hitting the bottle at an Atlanta bar ... TMZ has learned.

According to a passenger ... Hoffman was out almost as quickly as he took his seat for the NY-bound jet Thursday ... his head falling forward into his chest.

We're told sometime after the plane took off ... PSH came to ... groggy and disheveled.  After the flight touched down, we're told he was quickly put on a waiting airport cart and whisked away.

As we first reported ... Hoffman had been drinking in a downtown Atlanta bar earlier that day -- just 3 days before his death --  witnesses said he appeared drunk and made repeated trips to the bathroom.

It's probably been established that the man had addiction problems. What's next? Bathroom photos?

He took the Dirk Diggler rejection awfully hard.

It couldn't just be that he was tired from a full week of filming? Or that he catches up on sleep on a plane? I know I do and it probably would produce a comparable photo. I'd hope someone wouldn't just assume it must be because I'm drunk.

Why is it disgusting that they are posting things like this about a man who has just passed away but not about Britney Spears, Justin Bieber or Amanda Bynes who are still alive and clearly suffering/struggling with addiction and mental illness?! Because PSH was more well "respected"?! Or more "likeable"? I agree, this is very tacky, whether the person is alive or recently deceased. It's disrespectful, completely lacking any sympathy, and cruel to the person and their friends and family. But don't defend this and PSH if you are going to turn right back around and say nasty things about Justin Bieber or others. There's no justifying it.

We get it! He had addiction problems. Who doesn't?! Whether it be booze, drugs, nicotine, food, shopping etc. etc. etc. Leave the poor guy alone!!!

That just sounds like being a dude on a plane. Tmz is just buying up any and all recent photos of the guy and then creating "stories" to match the photos. Not worth it.

You all probably wonder why those with your jobs are hated so much. This should clear it up:

You are a bunch of pathetic, money-grubbing *******s that beg to make ANYTHING relevant. You're quite possibly the worst thing this planet has ever seen. I truly hope that when you die, celebrations are had, and your entire life is laid bare as the sick, pathetic joke that it is, you horrible, soulless bastards.

Is this really necessary? He died. There is no reason to bring out his skeletons. Let him be remembered for his acting.
