In a statement released Wednesday through his agent, the 69-year-old performer thanked his fans and said he's had a "wonderful career."

The statement said Hoskins was diagnosed with the degenerative nerve disease last fall.

The London actor -- a specialist in tough guys with a tender streak -- starred in British classics including "The Long Good Friday" and "Mona Lisa," as well as the Hollywood hit "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

Earlier this year, he was seen as one of the seven dwarves in "Snow White and the Huntsman," starring Kristen Stewart.
