Bob Hoskins

Actor Bob Hoskins has died following pneumonia at the age of 71, his agent Clair Dobbs said today.

British actor Bob Hoskins was famous for playing mouthy tough guys with a soft heart. His films included gangster movie The Long Good Friday, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Mona Lisa.

Here are some memorable quotes from the star:

I came into this business uneducated, dyslexic, 5ft 6in, cubic, with a face like a squashed cabbage – and they welcomed me with open arms.

– JULY 2009

I do find being violent on stage or in a film very easy. I once had to play a Pope, and being good was murder.

– OCTOBER 2005

If it wasn’t for acting I’d probably be a serial killer.
