British actor Bob Hoskins passed away on Tuesday evening after suffering from pneumonia.

The star, who had stepped away from acting after announcing he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2012, was 71.

Hoskins was best known for his role as Eddie Valiant in 1989's Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and he also played Mr. Smee in Peter Pan sequel "Hook" in 1991, reprising the role for the 2011 SyFy Pan prequel "Neverland."

"We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob. Bob died peacefully at hospital last night surrounded by family, following a bout of pneumonia," his wife Linda and four children said in a statement. "We ask that you respect our privacy during this time and thank you for your messages of love and support."

The actor's final film role came in "Snow White and the Huntsman" in 2012.

Hoskins is survived by his wife and their children Rosa and Jack, along with children Alex and Sarah, from his first wife Jane Livesey.
