NEW YORK, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Though Philip Seymour Hoffman had struggled with drug addiction in the past, his death came as a surprise to his friends, co-stars and other stars who admired his work.

The 46-year-old actor, who starred in films like Capote, Almost Famous and Boogie Nights, was found dead in his New York City apartment on Sunday. Hoffman is survived by his longtime partner, Mimi, and three children.

Most recently, Hoffman played Plutarch Heavensbee in the latest Hunger Games installment, Catching Fire.

Wes Bentley, who preceded Hoffman as Hunger Games gamemaker, remembered his "unparalleled" ability.

Evan Rachel Wood starred alongside Hoffman in 2011's The Ides of March. Steve Martin remembered Hoffman's performance in Death of a Salesman.
