Burt Reynolds Passes Away At 82

Movie star Burt Reynolds has passed away at the age of 82. The cultural icon died of an apparent heart attack.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

The ex-jock from Florida starred in ‘Deliverance’ and ‘Boogie Nights’ but preferred making such populist, fun fare as ‘Smokey and the Bandit,’ ‘The Cannonball Run’ and ‘Starting Over.’

Burt Reynolds, the charismatic star of such films as Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey and the Bandit who set out to have as much fun as possible on and off the screen — and wildly succeeded — has died. He was 82.

Reynolds, who received an Oscar nomination when he portrayed porn director Jack Horner in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights (1997) and was the No. 1 box-office attraction for a five-year stretch starting in the late 1970s, died Thursday morning at Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, his manager, Erik Kritzer, told The Hollywood Reporter. 

The cause of death was cardiopulmonary arrest.

Reynolds was the top-grossing actor from 1978 to 82 and enjoyed a long and prosperous career.
