“I’m just very sad,” she told RadarOnline.com. “There’s a lot of wonderful things I’d like to say about Burt, who was a truly wonderful man.”
Reynolds spent his last years battling illnesses that left him frighteningly frail and weighing barely 100 pounds.
It was a far cry from the jovial man actress Kristy McNichol, who co-starred with Reynolds in the movie “The End”, remembered.
“He was the sweetest, loveliest person. I wish you could have been my dad,” she told RadarOnline.com.
As for frequent co-star and one-time love Sally Field, she chose to reflect on the good times the two had together.
“There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade away. They stay alive, even forty years later,” she reflected. “My years with Burt never leave my mind. He will be in my history and my heart, for as long as I live. Rest, Buddy.”
