Russell Brand: Hoffman Death Due To 'stupid' Drug Laws

by Wochit 1:18 mins

The British actor/comedian Russell Brand, a recovering drug addict, says today that Philip Seymour Hoffman's death was "inevitable" and due to "stupid" drug laws. "In spite of his life seeming superficially great, in spite of all the praise and accolades, in spite of all the loving friends and family, there is a predominant voice in the mind of an addict that supersedes all reason and that voice wants you dead," Brand says. That's when actor Hoffman, 46, an Oscar winner, one of the most admired actors of his generation, and a longtime heroin addict, was found dead in his New York apartment, needle in arm, branded packets of the drug scattered around.
