Oh man, I saw this coming, but still...pretty sad. Cool AF dude Burt Reynolds has passed away at the age of 82. I know of Mr. Reynolds first and foremost because of Smokey and the Bandit:
I can't tell you how many times I have seen this movie. Numerous for sure.
Burt was also in films such as "Cannonball Run" (where he worked with his pal Dom Deluise), "Deliverance," "The Longest Yard," and "Boogie Nights." But, to me, he'll always be the Bandit.
Burt was also a sex symbol. Yes, you read that correctly. A sex symbol. I can't explain it, but ladies were all twitterpated over the man. I mean, I kinda get it...mustache, burly manliness...
We've all seen this centerfold, right?
The ladies from The Golden Girls were into him:
And there was even a book about some thirsty-ass women wanting to get into the dude's pants. I legit have wanted a copy of this book for a long time, but it's absolutely not worth the $70 when I can just get it via Google Images, ya know? Check out the listing on Amazon HERE!
Thanks for the laughs and iconic performances, sir.
