    Another great performance as well. Watching him and Streep together was something to never forget.

    I'm like you, Rob. I'll never understand why people with a life do these things. Terrible.

    Not to excuse away others' doing such drugs but when you see a homeless guy doing it or some really impovrished dude you tend to think "guy's trying to mentally escape where he's at." But these rich pricks who get the carpet rolled out for them wherever they go... don't get it. Grow the **** up.

    Great actor. Lousy junkie.

    He played a heroin addict

    Not really to me.

    As an ex-alcoholic/drug addict myself...whenever I watched him, I always assumed he was either a drinker and/or an addict. He just had that look.

    No, it's not at all scientific.

    It's just something you get used to when you are around addicts (like I used to be).


    I managed to quit before it killed me.

    I am very sorry that he did not.

    Very tragic, good actor.

    Sad that the rehab didn't work out and he chose to fall of the wagon again. That's usually the most dangerous time addict, because when they try the same dose they used to when they were heavy users with a higher tolerance they're so much more likely to OD.

    Glad to hear you made it. Good for you.

    every time I read about a story like this the whole thing about legalizing drug use seems to be even more asinine.
