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.

– SEPTEMBER 2010
