  • Burt Reynolds dies at the age of 82

Revered Hollywood star Burt Reynolds has died aged 82, his publicist has said.

Social media reacted with sadness and with tributes to Reynolds Thursday, pointing out his iconic roles and the example he set for stars on the rise. "RIP Bandit", another user wrote.

His acting reached its peak in the late 1970s and early '80s, when he starred in a string of big movies and franchises such as "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Cannonball Run". According to T.S. and Brodie, Alyssa looked just like Burt Reynolds "except for the mustache".

Smith's most memorable Reynolds reference was in Mallrats, when T.S. and Brodie talk with Alyssa Jones about a party during which Alyssa had sex with Clerks baddie Rick Derris on a pool table, while Rick and Alyssa were dressed as Smokey and The Bandit.

He died at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Reynolds had mixed feelings about the film in spite of the acclaim.

While THR didn't include a cause of death, The Daily Mail reports that Reynolds died of a heart attack. Though the actor lost the Oscar that year to Robin Williams, he did win a Golden Globe for the role.

In 1972 he appeared in John Boorman's harrowing survival classic Deliverance, and his career enjoyed a brief renaissance when he starred in Paul Thomas Anderson's 1997 movie Boogie Nights as a porn director who takes Mark Wahlberg's character under his wing.
