According to the report, Reynolds died on Thursday morning at Jupiter Medical in Flordia, per his manager Erik Krtizer.

Stars have taken to social media to pay tribute to Reynolds.

The 82-year-old was surrounded by family after being rushed to the hospital after going into cardiac arrest.

Several entertainment institutions also honored Reynolds.

China's Foreign Ministry said Monday it had launched an investigation into the circumstances of Liu's arrest . The arrest comes shortly after Liu was in the spotlight for another incident involving sexual misconduct.

He spent his last days dependent on a cane and a wheelchair after he had been ravaged by heart disease and arthritis, and reportedly battled addiction to pain pills. He did win a Golden Globe for the role in 1998, and another Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy in 1992 for his role in the CBS series Evening Shade.

Despite a career of defining roles, Reynolds also turned down a number of what would become some of Hollywood's biggest parts. Reynolds was an award-winning actor with numerous nominations under his belt, including his Oscar-nominated best-supporting actor role in Boogie Nights.

Rejected roles aside, Reynolds made quite a career for himself as a devil-may-care man film fans either wanted to be or wanted to be with. He also fronted such commercial favorites as "Smokey and the Bandit". Set in the 1970s porn industry, Anderson's film rejuvenated Reynolds career by casting him as the pragmatic, occasionally ruthless adult film director Jack Horner. Deliverance was one of the most well-received movies of that year and the era of Reynolds' dominance in Hollywood began. A critical hit, Boogie Nights never-the-less did not sit well with its star, who had trouble with the subject matter and hated working with Anderson, who he thought cocky.

The one that got away: The icon said that Sally Field was the love that got away. Following Deliverance, some of his most popular roles came in 1974's The Longest Yard, which was eventually remade with Adam Sandler in 2005. After that, from 1978 through 1982, Burt Reynolds was Hollywood's top-grossing star every single year. After marrying television actress Loni Anderson, Reynolds chose to produce and star in the sitcom Evening Shade, which ran on CBS from 1990-94.
