Friends and colleagues are sharing with RadarOnline.com their special memories of Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds.
Pam Seals, who had a turbulent decade-long relationship with the Striptease star, exclusively told Radar that she was “devastated” by the news.
“I’m just very sad,” she told Radar. “There’s a lot of wonderful things I’d like to say about Burt, who was a truly wonderful man.”
As Radar reported, Reynolds died suddenly after going into cardiac arrest on Thursday, Sept. 6. He was 82.
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 Radar.
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.”
