Hoskins, who also starred in Brazil, Hook, Super Mario Bros., and Nixon, retired from acting in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. In 1987, he received a Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his role in Mona Lisa. His last film role was in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman.
He died Tuesday in a hospital, surrounded by his family. His wife Linda and four children—Alex, Sarah, Rosa, and Jack—released a statement after his death.
"We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob," the statement said. "Bob died peacefully at hospital last night surrounded by family, following a bout of pneumonia. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time and thank you for your messages of love and support."
