US actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died after taking a cocktail of drugs that included heroin, cocaine and amphetamines, the New York medical examiner's office said Friday.
The Oscar-winning star -- widely hailed as the finest character actor of his generation -- was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on February 2 with a needle still stuck in his arm. He was 46.
The coroner's office said the death appeared accidental, and that Hoffman had suffered "acute mixed drug intoxication, including heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines and amphetamine."
