Philip Seymour Hoffman

Nods Off On Plane After Drinking Binge

2/3/2014 1:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

JUST STOP ALREADY!!!! Dude is dead. Obviously he had issues. Stop creating articles for his kids to find in the future. He certainly isn't a role model and needs to rest in peace.

SO TF what? You guys are unbelievable. Why don't you go back to what you do best, covering Kim K's anal bleaching habits or Bieber's kiddy boner and leave this man alone. He was talented, well liked and was obviously going through a very dark period. He's dead, what more do you want?

Obviously he had addictions. Let his children have some peace. Back off!

What the hell is wrong with you people???!!! This man is barely deceased 24 hours and you're piling on with all sorts of stories and sordid details. N.B. This is what the family means when they ask that you respect their privacy during this very hard time!!!! What part of that don't you bottom feeders don't get??!!! This goes way past gossip and fun into despicable behavior!!!

Now does that look like a man who loves his family? I think not. He got his just rewards.

This is getting ridiculous. We know he was found dead, we know how he died. You guys need to stop trying to find every piece of dirt on him you can.

why attack TMZ for posting this. This is how PSH chose to spend his last days in life and in public viewing. Let it be a warning to others on the same path. As a child of an alcoholic and a wife of a drug addict with 3 children..... there is no excuse. What about his 3 children, what did they do, to deserve losing their father to such a senseless, self absorbed addiction. We all have our issues, but once you bring children into the picture, its no longer just about you and your issues that you have had in your past. Its time to put that all aside and be the bigger person and a role model for your children. Yes he may have been a great actor but not such a great father or person.
