Smokey and the Bandit star Burt Reynolds has died

Burt Reynolds dies at the age of 82

According to US Weekly, Reynolds died at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida.

This week, Mr Reynold's agent, Todd Eisner, told NBC News the passing of the veteran actor was "heartbreaking".

Reynolds recently starred in "The Last Movie Star", which was released in March, about the story of a forgotten Hollywood icon. "I don't know if it's the best acting I've done, but it's the best movie I've ever been in".

From there, Reynolds appeared on Broadway but also started notching up guest roles on TV series such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone, from which he graduated to starring roles in shows including Gunsmoke (where he played a Native American for three years) Hawk and Dan August.

"It was the only time I saw men get up, sick, and walk out of a theater", he added.

Reynolds' notoriety soared through the late 1970s and 1980s, during which time he spearheaded the "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Cannonball Run" movie franchises.

The macho star also appeared in 1972's Deliverance, which was nominated for three Academy Awards.

In the United States was buried with honors John McCain
Doug Ducey congratulated Kyl on the appointment via Twitter . "Senator Kyl is prepared to hit the ground running". "Now Sen. Kyl benefits from a long Washington experience, having served a total of 26 years in Congress, 18 of them alongside McCain.

In a recent interview on the "Today" show, Reynolds said that Field was the love of his life.

The moustachioed actor had undergone heart bypass surgery in 2010. "It proved I could act, not only to the public but me".

During the peak of his success, he had money, mansions, and wives - including the famous Loni Anderson, whom he divorced in 1993.

Once among Hollywood's highest-paid actors, Reynolds later fell into financial trouble amid private ventures in an Atlanta restaurant and a professional sports team, though he continued to make cameo appearances and teach acting classes.

Reynolds, named the top box office draw for five consecutive years by The National Association of Theatre Owners, was an Oscar nominee, a two-time Golden Globe victor, and the recipient of the People's Choice Award for six straight years.

"Reynolds" film career began with 1961's Angel Baby, and he quickly began winning leading parts in movies including Navajo Joe and Operation CIA.
