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.

Anyone else notice he is holding his cell phone? Those of us that wear glasses sometimes look over the top of our glasses just like this when reading...

Very sad. Obviously Hoffman was ill, and obviously he needed help. That's the tragic with all druggies, as long as they are sane, nobody can force them into a treatment, whereas the druggie makes the right decisions either too late or never.

I wonder why his family could not help him....

This is my first ever post on TMZ. I created an account just to say... TMZ, this article is horrible and you should be ashamed of yourselves. The man is dead and your exploitation of his issues is disgusting. I hope the entire TMZ staff is living their lives beyond reproach, but if they are not... I hope a popular media website will post obnoxious and terrible articles about them.

How odd, a man falling asleep on an airplane! Let's make a big deal out of it and embellish the story so we can further mock the dead and humiliate his children all the more. I am done with this site for a while. You bottom feeders are just disgusting at this point.

Really, TMZ?! Was that photo necessary? Don't you think his family is suffering enough without the further indignity of this kind of slime? For shame!

Harv Levin: "Thank God we have finally found a worthy successor to our blanket Paul Walker coverage. How many more times could we have talked about Walker's charred remains. Now someone find me PSH's drug dealer and we'll go buy his story for 500 thousand......."

TMZ you sicken me... a bunch of parasites who can't let anyone rest in peace. I can't wait for KARMA to smackyou creeps upside the head.
Exploiting someone's addiction while his family, especially his childre struggle to cope with this tragedy, is absolutely disgusting and so is your entire staff.
