Legendary actor Burt Reynolds dies at 82



Burt Reynolds, the mustached sex symbol of the 1970s and 1980s, who ruled the box office with good-ol’-boy movies like Smokey and the Bandit, and earned the critical praise he so badly desired in Starting Over and Boogie Nights, died Thursday, his agent confirmed to Yahoo Entertainment. He was 82.

As much as Reynolds represented an era, he also stood as a timeless cautionary tale. After a five-year run as Hollywood’s No. 1 male movie star, from 1978 to 1982, Reynolds fell into a funk of flops and personal problems, including unfounded health rumors and a nasty tabloid divorce from TV star Loni Anderson, from which his career never recovered.

Looking back once, Reynolds said he had something no one could take from him: he was “part of film history.”

“You die with that,” Reynolds said. “They can say his career went downhill after that; he made bad films.’ It doesn’t matter.”

Born Feb. 11, 1936, in Michigan, Reynolds was a Florida State University football player who broke into Hollywood in his early 20s. The early going was rough. He was fired from a studio on either the same day or in the same year, he would alternately recount, as Clint Eastwood: Eastwood was told his Adam’s apple was too big; Reynolds was told he couldn’t act.

His first steady gig, on the TV Western Riverboat, ended when he quit because, he said, “I wasn’t getting along with the star… and I had a stupid part.”

Although he became a regular on the long-running hit show ****moke, Reynolds would chase breakout fame into his mid-30s. The actor credited guest-hosting stints for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show with leading him to two career-changing job offers: a role in Deliverance; and a chance to pose for Cosmopolitan magazine.

Published in April 1972, the Cosmo centerfold spread placed a naked, but strategically covered Reynolds on a bear rug, and put the actor on the map as a sex symbol.

“I can’t believe the chicks are turned on by it,” Reynolds told the Associated Press at the time.

A few months after the magazine hit the stands, Reynolds starred alongside Jon Voight, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox in the Deliverance. The 1972 canoe-trip-from-hell drama was a popular and critical hit, scoring three Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.

Around the time Reynolds’s star was ascending, his upper lip was evolving. Clean-shaven during the 1960s, Reynolds began sporting a mustache, off and on, in the early 1970s. (It’s off in Deliverance; it’s on in Cosmo.) By the late 1970s, the mustache was a fixture as much as Reynolds was atop the box-office standings. Hits from the decade included the pro-football comedy Semi-Tough, the prison-football football comedy The Longest Yard, the stuntman adventure Hooper, and the first Smokey and the Bandit crash-’em up, which costarred Reynolds’s then-girlfriend (and the woman he later called the love of his life), Sally Field.

For a time, Field was part of a Reynolds movie posse that included Dom DeLuise, Jim Nabors, Jerry Reed, director Hal Needham, and stock cars.

Reynolds went clean-shaven for the 1979 comedy-drama Starting Over. For the first time, Reynolds received serious Oscar buzz; he did not, however, receive a nomination. When Reynolds didn’t accompany Field to the 1980 ceremony, where Field would win Best Actress for Norma Rae, his absence was chalked up to jealousy. Reynolds and Fields subsequently broke up, although the duo was seen on screen together one last time in the 1980 hit sequel, Smokey and the Bandit II.

After the hits The Cannonball Run and The Best Little *****house in Texas, Reynolds’s box-office luck ran out in 1983 when he released back-to-back-to-back bombs: Stroker Act, Smokey and the Bandit III, and The Man Who Loved Women. “It turned bad with Stroker Ace,” he would say of one his misfires that year. “We went to the well too many times with the race cars and the cast.”

The same year, 1983, Jack Nicholson revitalized his own then-sagging career in Terms of Endearment, playing an Oscar-winning role that Reynolds turned down; Reynolds chose to make Cannonball Run II, yet another commercial and critical flop, instead.

In the mid-1980s, in the wake of the death of movie idol Rock Hudson, and sparked by weight loss Reynolds attributed to jaw problems, the actor was dogged by false rumors that he’d fallen ill with AIDS.

Reynolds looked up on the upswing in the 1990s, when he won an Emmy for the sitcom Evening Shade. But the 1993 meltdown of his marriage to second-wife Anderson was a publicity nightmare, with Reynolds accusing Anderson of cheating on him, and requesting that she submit to a truth-serum test. In 1994, Evening Shade was canceled.

Reynolds was in need of another comeback when writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson cast him as patriarchal porn director Jack Horner in 1997’s Boogie Nights. Reynolds won raves, along with the New York and Los Angeles critics’ awards and the Golden Globe. His path to the Oscar seemed certain.

But at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Academy Awards, Good Will Hunting‘s Robin Williams took the Best Supporting Actor trophies. Conventional wisdom said Reynolds lost support either for his history of taking shots at other actors, or for trashing his own comeback vehicle. (Per Hollywood lore, Reynolds hated Boogie Nights, and fired his agent after watching the movie.)

After, Reynolds did multiple TV guest shots, starred as Boss Hogg in the big-screen version of The Dukes of Hazzard, and had a role in the Adam Sandler remake of The Longest Yard. While doing publicity for the latter film, Reynolds created a stir when he slapped a TV producer who’d admitted to not having seen the original 1974 film; Reynolds’s camp insisted the actor was joking.

Reynolds was married and divorced twice, first to actress Judy Carne, then to Anderson, with whom he adopted his only child, a son, Quinton, named after his character on ****moke. In addition to Field, whom he would later describe as the love of his life, he was romantically linked to entertainer Dinah Shore.

In recent years, Reynolds endured a series of health and apparent financial troubles. He had heart surgery in 2010 and then in 2014, he auctioned off memorabilia, including a Smokey and the Bandit-era Trans Am, and his Golden Globe for Boogie Nights. Reynolds, who also put his Florida mansion on the block, flatly insisted he was “not broke.”

Reynolds explained his downsizing to Yahoo as an act of humility: “Quite frankly, I am sick of so many pictures of myself in my own home.”

In May 2015, a frail-looking Reynolds, cane in hand, made a rare public appearance at a pop-culture convention in Philadelphia. He told the Philadelphia Inquirer his absence from public life was due to his work on his tell-all memoir, But Enough About Me.

“When you write a book like this, you have to tell the whole thing, and there are days when everything isn’t wonderful and there were people who I thought were asses,” Reynolds said.

While he appeared in a string of mostly forgettable TV and film projects over the past decade, he was looking to make a splash in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and Al Pacino.

FWIW the book "Stand On It by Stroker Ace" was a superb tale of racing in the 60s/70s that Hollywood ruined. Was written by Bill Neely, the legendary Goodyear guy.

Sad to lose such a great character.


His film sets looked fun (always outakes at the end), A listers spoke highly of him.

Oh wow, RIP Burt. I have a thing for older men and thought he was so sexy back in the day. They sure don't don't make them like they used to.

He lived for a few years next door to my family (my great-grandparents and several great-aunts and uncles) in Loganville, GA; his house was a mansion on a two-lane country highway, ours was a depression-era shack! For a while, when I was a teenager, it was all the talk.
