Actress Jennifer Lawrence has become the latest celebrity to pay tribute to tragic actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away from an apparent drug overdose on Sunday.

The 46 year old's body was found in his New York apartment after a friend grew concerned following failed attempts to contact the star.

At the time of his death, Hoffman was filming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 & 2 and now the franchise star is remembering her fallen castmate.

A statement from the actress, director Francis Lawrence and The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins, reads, "Words cannot convey the devastating loss we are all feeling right now. Philip was a wonderful person and an exceptional talent, and our hearts are breaking. Our deepest condolences go out to his family."

Bosses from Lionsgate Films, the production company behind the movie, and franchise star Sam Claflin have also issued statements.

Other tributes have come from Steve Martin, Ricky Gervais, Aaron Paul, Rose McGowan, Justin Timberlake, Minnie Driver, Octavia Spencer, Anna Kendrick, Lena Dunham, Mia Farrow, Elijah Wood and Jim Carrey.
