Burt Reynolds - All The Stars We Lost In 2018

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

Us Weekly reports Reynolds died after suffering cardiac arrest at a Florida hospital on Thursday. Nevertheless, he had continued to act and was reportedly set to appear in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is now in production. He returned to television before making a comeback in the 1997 film Boogie Nights as porn director Jack Horner, a role that finally earned him his first Academy Award Nomination.

Though Reynolds was the movie industry's highest-grossing actor between 1978 and 1982, his star dimmed throughout the decade after a string of sequels, box office flops, and a few personal issues related to his flamboyant lifestyle. Still, he'll be remembered by more than one generation for the likes of The Cannonball Run, The Player and his Oscar-nominated role in Boogie Nights. "I was interested in having a good time", Reynolds wrote in his 2015 memoir, "But Enough About Me".

"It was the only time I saw men get up, sick, and walk out of a theater", he added. "It proved I could act, not only to the public but me".

Burt Reynolds sits on a 1977 Pontiac Trans-Am at the world premiere of "The Bandit" at the Paramount Theatre during the South by Southwest Film Festival in March 2016 in Austin, Texas.
