    @Dess: Heath did not die from heroin you stupid twit. he was taking prescription meds like 98% of the US population does. they are also dangerous and every day someone dies by accident from these meds. just because he was in a movie about heroin doesn’t mean he used it and just because he was in a gay movie didn’t make him gay. You people in these sites are totally ignorant.

    One can’t help wondering about the absurdity and irony of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s funeral, there he was surrounded by all these glamorous photogenic ‘Hollywood friends’ who had come to honor a legend (at a private gathering to boot) and yet in his time of need the actor was literally walking around like a bum, lonely, begging anyone who would listen that he was a ‘junkie’ but to no avail….
