Philip Seymour Hoffman

Nods Off On Plane After Drinking Binge

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Seriously this guy has a family and I ofcourse didn't know him personally but he seemed to be a great guy, let him rest in peace and don't post this kind of stuff to make him look bad, it's disgusting, trying to get more views on your website by doing this to someone who passed away tragically. If you had one moral bone in your body you would remove this and only post positive articles about PSH. I'm sure if one of your loved ones passed away you would want all medie to respect them as well.

Not cool. He just passed away, we all know he had problems by now, no need to make it worse. He has kids!

This is a disgrace that you would feel the need to dig up every picture of him. What a shame for his poor family. Do you have an ounce of compassion, TMZ?

This man, who obviously had some serious issues, has been dead less than 24 hours. For God's sake, leave he and his family alone at least a few days. What I truly find disgusting is all this piling on vs. where were all of his friends or even the media when he needed help the most? It is classless to bash him now that he is dead. My heart is with his family.

Oh, I see. Tmz isn't even trying to give the illusion of being decent anymore. Good to know. I really hope tmz gets shut down soon, this coming from a former die hard fan. You've lost it and are now pure trash. Please shut down the site. Listen to the hundreds of former fans.

I wish you wouldn't have posted this I actually think you guys are great but recently you've been awful especially joking after Sylvia Brown died , u might not understand how being a psychic works . It's not our brains that gives us the ability its oir spiritual connection to the spirit worldand many times we aren't shown when we will pass or we ask not to be shown why would you kick a person
after they are freshly dead? He obviously was very sick man... It's too soonTMZ and I'm bad taste. Is getting the story first that important?

TMZ you do an awesome job with your web site and tv show! All these people complaining need to stop going to your site. I'm a huge Howard Stern fan and it reminds me of the people that complained about his content on air. If you don't like something why waste your time. Click onto another site!

I will never understand why someone could take their own life....This guy had a great life & he was young...He still had his whole life ahead of him....I'm sorry but I just can't have any sympathy when someone commits suicide.
