SCREEN LEGEND BURT REYNOLDS DIES AT AGE 82

Burt Reynolds Recently In NYC



CNN - Burt Reynolds, the mustachioed megastar who first strutted on screen more than half a century ago, died Thursday, according to his agent Todd Eisner. He was 82.



The Michigan native, whose easy-going charms and handsome looks drew prominent roles in films such as "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Boogie Nights," suffered a cardiac arrest, Eisner said.
An iconic Hollywood sex symbol in front of the camera, Reynolds also tried his directorial hand behind it, and later earned a reputation for philanthropy after founding the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre in his home state of Florida.

Editors Note: I did a few photo shoots with Bert Reynolds. I think the best one was with him and Luke Perry at a theater on Bleeker Street in NYC. We had so many laughs and I will always remember that night. RIP Burt!
