Burt Reynolds & Clint Eastwood were fired from GUNSMOKE & RAWHIDE at the same time. Burt was told he couldn't act and Clint his neck was too skinny. In the parking lot, Burt said to Clint, "I dunno what you're gonna do, but I'm gonna take acting lessons." #RIPBurtReynolds— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) September 6, 2018
Burt Reynolds was one of my heroes. He was a trailblazer. He showed the way to transition from being an athlete to being the highest paid actor, and he always inspired me. He also had a great sense of humor - check out his Tonight Show clips. My thoughts are with his family.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) September 6, 2018

RIP to Burt Reynolds, a man who became so much more than Lee Corso’s roommate. Here the two are on the 1956 Florida State football team. pic.twitter.com/7UGDe9VeUl— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) September 6, 2018
Had the pleasure of meeting Burt Reynolds at a charity do once. He was surprisingly down to earth, and VERY funny.— Limmy (@DaftLimmy) September 6, 2018
The best “bad” movies of my childhood had Burt Reynolds in them and I loved so many of his “bad” movies. Was a particular sucker for the slapstick of Reynolds and Dom DeLuise together. RIP Burt https://t.co/SeVmeDLueO— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) September 6, 2018

Very sad to hearing about the passing of Burt Reynolds. He was a great actor, a philanthropist and a pioneer of the cool mustache. Thank you, Burt. You will be missed. pic.twitter.com/nuuFWMSnJg— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) September 6, 2018
I’m at a loss for words. Burt Reynolds was a childhood hero of mine and will be forever. His iconic roles in Cannonball Run, Hooper, Smokey and the Bandit and Stroker Ace helped make me the man I am today. The Bandit will live on forever, rest in peace Burt pic.twitter.com/Om1eUv1N7S— Richard Ray Rawlings (@RRRawlings) September 6, 2018
RIP Burt Reynolds. Another one of my all time favorites growing up. Thanks for the memories. I met Burt a few times at his theatre in Jupiter. Such an engaging and funny guy plus a huge mentor to young actors in Jupiter. His Carson shows were hilarious. Thanks for the memories. pic.twitter.com/ikUM9s5pdr— Larry The Cable Guy (@GitRDoneLarry) September 6, 2018

Burt Reynolds, movie star who played it for grins, dies at 82.— Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) September 6, 2018
Burt! Met him on Burn Notice. He was the real deal. It was an honor to work with him and get to know the man a little bit. Ride on, Bandit! https://t.co/oag9ZC3pqR
You can be cool but you’ll never be Burt Reynolds cool. RIP Bandit.— Samoa Joe (@SamoaJoe) September 6, 2018
Sad to hear of the passing of legend, Burt Reynolds.— Elijah Wood (@elijahwood) September 6, 2018
As THE movie star of my childhood, the Bandit stole our hearts for decades. I always loved how Burt Reynolds worked with his friends as often as he could and then showcased the fun of movie-making in the end credits of his flicks. He was true American icon. Hate to see him go... https://t.co/jaMZjJA4e8— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) September 6, 2018
RIP Burt Reynolds. Seems his whole career was tongue in cheek. Always warm and funny.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) September 6, 2018
Burt Reynolds was such a legend. My dad took me to every one of his movies as a kid. Smokey and the Bandit... Cannonball Run. I really wanted that Trans-Am. That was my favorite matchbox car. RIP. pic.twitter.com/IfVHG4yyFe— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) September 6, 2018
Burt Reynolds was one of the kindest and most generous people I have ever worked with. He took me under his wing when I was first starting out as an actor and offered friendship, advice and guidance.— Paul Wesley (@paulwesley) September 6, 2018
I’ll never forget how much that meant to me.
