Boogie Nights star Burt Reynolds dies at 82


By Megan Vick,

Iconic actor Burt Reynolds died Thursday at Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 82.

Best known for his signature mustache and fun-loving style, Reynolds will be remembered for his work in films like Deliverance, Boogie Nights and, of course, Smokey and the Bandit. He earned an Oscar nomination in 1998, for his performance in Boogie Nights, but he lost the award to Robin Williams for Good Will Hunting. A legendary actor, Reynolds was Hollywood's top grossing star for four years in a row, from 1978 to 1982. At one point during that same period he had four films playing in theaters at the same time, which is a rare feat these days.

Born Feb. 11, 1936, Reynolds was mostly known for his film work, but he also had a storied television career. He won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his performance as Wood Newton on Evening Shade. He also appeared in the third season of Gunsmoke, which remains the longest-running drama ever. The actor is such an icon that he was even immortalized on Saturday Night Live by Norm Macdonald during "Celebrity Jeopardy."

"I always wanted to experience everything and go down swinging," the actor wrote in the closing of his memoir But Enough About Me. "I know I'm old, but I feel young. And there's one thing they can never take away: Nobody had more fun than I did."

And the actor kept having fun until the very end. Reynolds began his Hollywood career in 1966 and was still working at the time of his death. He recently filmed scenes for Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and was in pre-production for a film called The French Cowboy, according to IMDB.

Reynolds is survived by his son, Quentin Anderson Reynolds.
