US actor Burt Reynolds has died, aged 82.
He starred in numerous films including Deliverance and Boogie Nights.
A spokesman for Reynolds told the Press Association he died in Jupiter Florida after suffering a heart attack.
Spearheading the Smokey the Bandit and Cannonball Run franchises in the 1970s and 1980s, Reynolds notoriety soared, CNN reports.
After a slump in his career from the mid-1980s an Academy Award nomination for Boogie Nights in 1997 saw his fortunes rebound.
"I didn't open myself to new writers or risky parts because I wasn't interested in challenging myself as an actor. I was interested in having a good time," Reynolds wrote in his 2015 memoir ButEnoughAboutMe.
"As a result, I missed a lot of opportunities to show I could play serious roles. By the time I finally woke up and tried to get it right, nobody would give me a chance."
Reynolds also had more than his share of flops and tabloid moments, including an acrimonious divorce from former TV star Loni Anderson and a nearly nude centerfold in Cosmopolitan magazine.
