Tributes have flooded in for Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The 46-year-old Oscar winner was found dead this morning (02.02.14) of an apparent drugs overdose, and many have rushed to pay their respects to the star, widely regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation.

Comedy actor Jim Carrey added: ''Dear Philip, a beautiful beautiful soul. For the most sensitive among us the noise can be too much. Bless your heart.''

Philip was last seen on the big screen as Plutarch Heavensbee in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', and he had been working on a new comedy-drama TV series, 'Happyish' at the time of his passing.
