HOLLYWOOD legend Marlon Brando, hailed as one of the greatest actors of the 20th century in a career overshadowed by his eccentric behaviour and personal tragedy, has died at the age of 80.
The reclusive and brooding two-time Oscar winner and star of such classics as On the Waterfront, The Godfather and A Streetcar Named Desire died in a Los Angeles hospital.
"The actor Marlon Brando passed away yesterday, July 1, at 6.30pm (11.30am AEST Friday) at the UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) Medical Centre of lung failure, according to his doctors," hospital spokeswoman Roxanne Moster said.
