Actor Burt Reynolds, whose good looks and charm made him one of Hollywood's most popular actors, has died at the age of 82.
Starring in films like "Deliverance" and "The Longest Yard," Reynolds was one of the most bankable actors in the movie industry at the peak of his career.
He starred in a series of box office smashes until his career took a downturn in the mid 1980s.
Reynolds rebounded in 1997 with an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor for "Boogie Nights." He won an Emmy for his role in the 1990s TV series "Evening Shade." With his trademark mustache and rugged looks, Reynolds was a leading male sex symbol in the 1970s, once appearing naked in a centerfold in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Reynolds grew up in Florida and played football at Florida State University in the 1950s.
He began acting after enrolling in a junior college and moved to New York where he landed minor stage and TV roles before making his film debut in 1961.
