USA TODAY - Academy Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has died at age 46, reports the Wall Street Journal and ABC. 

In late May, Hoffman finished a 10-day stint in a rehab program for a drug problem that included snorting heroin. The actor had struggled with substance abuse in the past, but had been clean for 23 years.

 The actor has three children – Cooper, 10; Tallulah 7, and Willa, 5 – with costume designer Mimi O'Donnell. Hoffman was nominated four times for an Oscar and won the best actor award for Capote in 2006.

He most recently starred as Plutarch Heavensbee in the summer blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
