Have your say

I was really upset to hear the news about actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman this week.

The brilliant actor was found dead in his New York apartment. Although it’s unconfirmed at the moment, reports suggest that Phillip may have died of a drug overdose.

So very, very sad.

It seems like I end up writing about losing another celebrity all too often.

Don’t get me wrong, their status doesn’t make it any more tragic than anyone else’s deaths.

It’s just my job to report about it and it saddens me that PSH was someone so talented who had so much to live for.

He had reportedly helped many other men and women to deal with their addictions. But he needed help himself.
