Even though William Hurt was a well-known actor, he enjoyed keeping his personal life out of the spotlight. “It’s not right that my privacy is invaded to the extent that it is,” Hurt told The New York Times during a 1989 interview. “I’m a very private man, and I have the right to be. I never said that because I was an actor you can have my privacy, you can steal my soul. You can’t.”

Even though Hurt managed to maintain his privacy, it didn’t stop fans and fellow actors alike from connecting with him and his work. Actor Topher Grace tweeted, “Grateful that I had the opportunity to work with William Hurt. I admired his acting so much and watching his commitment in person was remarkable. My thoughts are with his family.” The legendary actor George Takei also tweeted, “Saddened to hear of the passing of actor William Hurt. He broke the mold in his Oscar-winning role in Kiss of the Spider Woman, broke smiles in Broadcast News, and broke our hearts in The Accidental Tourist. A great loss to the world. Rest among the stars now, good sir.” Mark Ruffalo said, “Wow, another Major loss to the acting community. Great actor. Great mind.”

Hurt is survived by his four children.
