Guillermo del Toro calls Hauer "an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films."
Dutch actor Rutger Hauer has died at the age of 75, and Hollywood is in mourning.
Best known for playing Roy Batty alongside Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard in the 1982 sci-fi film "Blade Runner," Hauer also played the villainous John Ryder in the 1986 thriller "The Hitcher," as well as Captain Navarre in the 1985 fantasy/adventure "LadyHawke."
The veteran actor -- whose career spanned over five decades -- died at his home in the Netherlands last week after a short illness, according to TMZ. His funeral was held Wednesday.
In addition to fans and fellow entertainers, Hauer's co-stars have also been paying their respects to the late actor on social media.
Gene Simmons, who worked with Hauer on the 1987 thriller "Wanted: Dead or Alive," tweeted, "Sad to hear Rutger Hauer has passed away. He was always a gentleman, kind and compassionate."
Ice-T, who appeared with Hauer in the 1994 thriller/drama "Surviving the Game," shared, "RIP Rutger Hauer. I had the honor of working with him in 'Surviving The Game.' Yep... A very cool dude... He will be missed... R.I.P Rutger Hauer." The rapper also retweeted a "crazy scene" from "Surviving The Game."
Josh Gad wrote, "A very sad goodbye to the great #rutgerhauer" along with a GIF of Hauer's famous "tears in the rain" scene from "Blade Runner," as Guillermo del Toro called Hauer "an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films."

Rutger Hauer. I spent several months in the outback of Australia with him. He was a true sweetheart of a man. We did a film together, I was very young called Salute of the Jugger/The blood of heroes. I'll never forget the Dutch films and BLADE RUNNER. He'll always stay with me. pic.twitter.com/VTCk0QHEnV
