Philip Seymour Hoffman died of an accidental overdose of drugs, the New York City Chief Medical Examiner said on Friday (February 28). The cause of death was acute drug intoxication, including heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines and amphetamine. The actor was found dead in his New York apartment on February 2 with a needle in his arm. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are engaged, at least according to US Weekly and the E! entertainment news website. Photographs on the websites taken of Kunis on Thursday (February 27) show her sporting a large diamond ring on her left hand. Alicia Keys hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for Unite4:good - a special program that unites charities and social programs with celebrities. In addition to Keys, Forest Whitaker also attended, as did Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. Finally, rain has hampered work on the Oscar red carpet. Los Angeles was hit with one of its worst storms in years on Friday (February 28). Crews covered the red carpet area with a massive tent and protected the carpet itself with plastic. The rain is scheduled to stay through Sunday (March 02), which means it could literally put a damper on the Oscar ceremony.
