"Desperate Housewives" alum Shawn Pyfrom, in the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely death, has admitted that he is an addict and has struggled with drug and alcohol abuse. Hoffman, the 46-year-old "Hunger Games" and "Capote" actor, who was found dead in his New York apartment Sunday after an apparent drug overdose, influenced the younger actor, who is best known for playing actress Marcia Cross' mischievous son Andrew Van De Kamp on the ABC drama. Seemingly moved to speak out after Hoffman's death, Pyfrom took to Tumblr to write a lengthy open letter to others who may be struggling the same way he did because he "could not hear of another person being robbed of their life, due to addiction.

The saga between behemoths Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair seems to have come to an anticlimactic close.
