Diaries Reveal Hoffman's Struggle With Sobriety, Demons
(New York, NY) -- Two diaries discovered at Philip Seymour Hoffman's apartment suggest that the actor struggled with "demons" before his death from an apparent drug overdose on February 2nd. NBC News says the diaries discovered by the New York Police Department also include handwritten notes about Hoffman's drug deals and his attempts to stay sober by attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings. The network says some of the entries appear to have been written during Hoffman's stay in rehab last year.

One source described the entries as a "stream of consciousness and difficult to follow," noting that in one line Hoffman makes reference to a "Frank" who "always owes money" and a 15-year-old girl from Texas. Police reportedly also found books about Truman Capote, whom Hoffman portrayed in the 2005 movie "Capote" and won an Oscar for the portrayal.
