His manager confirms to US Weekly that the "Smokey And The Bandit" star went into a cardiac arrest at a Florida hospital on September 6 and passed away with his family by his side. In 2010, Reynolds underwent a quintuple heart bypass one year after entering rehab to end a reliance on prescription drug habit acquired after back surgery.
The handsome film and television star was known for his acclaimed performances in "Deliverance" and "Boogie Nights" and for an active off-screen life which included relationships with Loni Anderson, Sally Field and Dinah Shore.
After he returned to his football roots in The Longest Yard, he showed off all of that charm in the blockbuster film, Smokey and the Bandit, as a charming smuggler bringing a truck filled with Coors cross country to Georgia (at the time, Coors was not allowed to be sold East of the Mississippi).
Reynolds was born in Lansing, Michigan, on February 11, 1936.
"Reynolds" biggest early success on the silver screen was in 1972's Deliverance, in which he played one of four male friends whose backwoods canoeing trip goes seriously awry.
A MI native transplanted to Florida, he was an American football player in his youth, but switched to acting after a knee injury was aggravated by a vehicle accident.
According to his publicist, legendary actor Burt Reynolds has died.

Cohen had fronted the cash, $130,000, to pay porn star Stormy Daniels for keeping quiet about a decade-old tryst with Trump. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A.
Reynolds was last seen publicly in April at the Tribeca Film Festival, where he was helped onto the red carpet by Robert De Niro. The movie won Reynolds a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
"I didn't open myself to new writers or risky parts because I wasn't interested in challenging myself as an actor".
But Burt Reynolds shined the brightest in the late 1970s after starring in the high-speed action adventure Smokey and the Bandit in 1977.
There were a handful of iconic roles that Reynolds turned down during his Hollywood career, including Star Wars' Han Solo, cop John McClane in Die Hard, R.P McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and the character of Garrett Breedlove in Terms of Endearment, which Reynolds had previously commented was one of his worst mistakes.
He would later call Field "the one that got away".
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.
"I think mostly because he was young and full of himself", Reynolds said of Anderson in a GQ interview in 2015.
