Hollywood Actor Burt Reynolds Dies At 82
Hollywood icon, Burt Reynolds, whose good looks and charm made him one of the most popular actors has died at age 82.
Reynolds died on Thursday morning of cardiac arrest at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, his manager, Erik Kritzer, said in an email.
The actor who was a sex symbol starred in films such as “Deliverance,” “The Longest Yard” and “Smokey and the Bandit” in the 1970s and ’80s.
At the peak of his career, Reynolds was one of the most bankable actors in the film industry, reeling off a series of box office smashes until a career downturn in the mid-1980s. He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for “Boogie Nights,” and won an Emmy for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series “Evening Shade.”
