  • Burt Reynolds dies at the age of 82

Burt Reynolds, whose credits included acclaimed films such as "Deliverance" and commercial hits like "Smokey and the Bandit", has died.

He died at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Quentin Tarantino had cast him in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, but Reynolds had yet to work on the film.

The Georgia native, whose easy-going charms and handsome looks drew prominent roles in films such as "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Boogie Nights", suffered a cardiac arrest, Eisner said. "I was interested in having a good time", Reynolds wrote in his 2015 memoir, "But Enough About Me". "I don't know if it's the best acting I've done, but it's the best movie I've ever been in".

Despite finding success early on in his career, one of Reynolds' largest roles came decades later, when he played porn director Jack Horner in Paul Thomas Anderson's 1997 film Boogie Nights. "It proved I could act, not only to the public but me".

Burt Reynolds has played an important part in Palm Beach County's modern history and the impact he has had on their community is a vital part of that history.

Reynolds said in an interview two years ago that he believes his infamous nude spread in Cosmopolitan in 1972 probably cost him an Oscar nomination that year for his role in the thriller "Deliverance".

But Reynolds was always a complicated figure, sometimes happy with publicity and often shunning the press, making some unsuccessful career choices amid a turbulent personal life.

He would later call Field "the one that got away".

Tributes poured in for the late star, including from fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and other celebrities. In 1988, he married actress Loni Anderson, but that also ended bitterly in 1993.

Burt Reynolds break out role - as the leader of four "suburban guys" who run into serious trouble in the wilderness.

Once among Hollywood's highest-paid actors, Reynolds later fell into financial trouble amid private ventures in an Atlanta restaurant and a professional sports team, though he continued to make cameo appearances and teach acting classes.
