Philip Seymour Hoffman's Will Stipulates His Son Must Be Kept Away From Hollywood

Philip Seymour Hoffman and son Cooper

Hollywood actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away this month from a heroin overdose in New York, has left a will stipulating how his son must be raised. Hoffman's will from 2004, requested his son be raised in New York. Hoffman deliberately left Hollywood off the list of options where his son is to be raised.

While Hoffman became famous in Hollywood, he developed his worst vices there as well, due to the industry and its excesses, which ultimately sent him to an early grave. He clearly didn't want that for his son. No one does. While Los Angeles is a beautiful city, there's no denying the influence of the music/movie industry has destroyed many stars, saddling them with dangerous addictions.
