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.

I registered just to be able to leave a comment. If it was a perfect unknown person nobody would have bothered taking pictures. Now someone did it and sent those pictures to TMZ and you are proudly showing them like a trophy! This is so disrespectful to Mr. Seymour Hoffman, to his family, children and fans. The film industry and theater is saddened by the loss of an incredible actor. Please remove these pictures and show some respect. Suffering from addiction is a chronicle disease. Please stop it and may Phillip Seymour Hoffman rest in peace.

Why the big deal? This guys claim to fame was playing the "I sharted" guy in Along Came Polly. And he died a junkie with mass amount of heroin. Not exactly a role model or screen legend.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was murdered by The War On Drugs.

If you want to make a difference in your life and the world, you will comment on every posting about Philip Seymour Hoffman that "Philip Seymour Hoffman was murdered by The War On Drugs."

If all drug abuse was decriminalized and treated as a health problem in health clinics. Every addict would be treated with clean meds in a doctor managed program.

The War On Drugs would not, in fact, be a dirty and tattered cloak hiding the excessive enrichment by the needless appropriation of immense tax revenues for the law enforcement industry.

The War On Drugs would not, in fact, be the phony excuse for the massive sucking of our public taxes into the massive prisoners for profit Private Prison Industry.

Perhaps some gifted politicians would even take the tens of Billions of Dollars saved by these measures as the "offset savings" demanded by conservatives to pay for a real educational system, the repair of our rotting infrastructure, and the social safety net programs so vital for the no longer needed workers and their families in our country.

Sad... You have to be in a very dark place to live that way. Amazing how many people judge and how few have empathy

He was always mister All In, wasn't he? And that's what made him so great in his profession. RIP, SPH.

With any celebrity death.. TMZ is going to blow it up like hiroshima. Paul Walker... James Gandolfini... and now Philips. They will analyze, poke, prod, and stir up **** and continue to report in a disrespectful way and won't let it go until there is nothing left to squeeze out. I would BEG TMZ to just let the rest in peace, but sadly, it won't happen.
