"I had insecurities and fears like everybody does, and I got over it. But I was interested in the parts of me that struggled with those things." - Hoffman
Pictured Above: Hoffman, the consummate actor, passed away early Sunday of an apparent drug overdose. The Oscar-winning actor (Capote) who had his big break with the nineties classic Boogie Nights struggled with addiction, relapsing in 2013 after a sober stretch of over 20 years. Though he would become known for his silver screen stylings, he was also a prolific stage actor, garnering Tony nominations for his performances in True West and Long Day's Journey Into the Night.
