He’s one of the most-skilled thespian of our day, however not even Philip Seymour Hoffman can act his way out of drug addiction.

The “Master” star checked into a rehabilitation center earlier this month after getting hooked on everything from prescription pills to heroin.

Hoffman had only been using heroin for about a week when he decided he needed help, and he spent 10 days getting clean and sober before being released.

At this point, Philip is in Europe working on a new film and is said to be doing much better every day.
