He won the best actor Oscar and Bafta for Kiss Of The Spider Woman in 1985.

Fellow Marvel star Mark Ruffalo wrote: “Wow, another Major loss to the acting community.

“Great actor. Great mind. RIP.”

Gladiator star Russell Crowe said: “William Hurt has passed.

“On Robin Hood, I was aware of his reputation for asking character based questions, so I had compiled a file on the life of William Marshall.

“He sought me out when he arrived on set. I handed him the stack.

“Not sure if I’ve ever seen a bigger smile. RIP.”

Comedian Patton Oswald William said Hurt was “a beyond brilliant film & stage actor”.

“Then he went and guested on @TheKOQ and was so deadpan, low-key hilarious. ‘This is good cake. And I’m not a cake guy.’ RIP.” he wrote.

US actor Albert Brooks, who appeared alongside him in Broadcast News, wrote: “R.I.P. William Hurt. So sad to hear this news.
