Burt Reynolds died at 82 years of a heart attack.

The actor suffered a heart attack in a Florida hospital on Thursday, September 6, with his family at his side.

Reynolds was best known for his roles in Smokey and the Bandit in 1977, Striptease in 1996 and Boogie Nights in 1997, the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination.

He was also filming the new Quentin Tarantino movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is expected to hit theaters in 2019.

Reynolds' health was previously a concern and the actor underwent heart surgery in 2010.

His manager told CNN at the time that Reynolds has a big engine with new flutes.
