Oscar-winning star of Capote and one of the most acclaimed actors of screen and stage, Philip Seymour Hoffman has died of an apparent drug overdose at age 46. Hoffman’s body was found lying on the bathroom floor of his New York City apartment shortly after 11:30 yesterday morning. Police sources confirmed that Hoffman had a syringe in his arm and that two clear envelopes of what appeared to be heroin were found nearby. Eight empty envelopes also were discovered. The actor entered a detox center last May for heroin. He told TMZ he relapsed in 2012 after staying clean for 23 years, explaining that he first fell off the wagon by abusing prescription drugs before moving on to snorting heroin. Hoffman is survived by his longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children: daughters Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5, and son Cooper, 10. So sad. Watch Philip in his Oscar winning role here!

Tabloids have been going crazy with Bruce Jenner wanting to transform into a woman and now it seems like Bruce is taking steps closer to make his dream come true.

In more recent reports, the National Enquirer has claimed that Bruce has a persona he is hoping to emulate: Brigitte Bardot. In fact, he has decided on Brigitte for his new name once his transformation is fully complete.
