Stars are paying tribute to Legendary actor and heartthrob Burt Reynolds following his death on Thursday.

Reynolds rose to fame in the ’70s and ’80s with a slew of box office hits including the Cannonball Run and Smokey and the Bandit films. His good looks and easy charm soon propelled him to sex symbol status as the blockbusters kept on coming. In later years, Reynolds moved into television where he starred in long-running sitcom Evening Shade for which he won an Emmy. But the actor wasn’t done with movies; in the late ’90s, Reynolds returned to the big screen playing porn producer in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights. He was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance.
