The death of Burt Reynolds sent shockwaves throughout Hollywood. The Michigan native graced the big screen for 60 years with a bevy of unforgettable roles. Many of his closest friends and fond admirers have shared stories about his thoughtfulness. We look at some remarkable fact about the man that brought us the ‘stache.

Going Digital

While Reynolds claimed the silver screen, he also enjoyed some time in video games. He appeared in 2002’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as billionaire Avery Carrington. Nine years later, he appeared as himself in Saints Row: The Third. In this game, he can be used as an assist character.

Greatest Mustache Ever

Easily, one of Reynolds most noticeable traits is his mustache. In fact, the star stated numerous times that his mustache landed him most of his roles. In 2015, his facial hair earned him an induction into the International Mustache Hall of Fame. To commemorate the moment, the organization unveiled the inductees on Reynolds’ birthday.

Busting A Tune

Not many actors can say they’ve had a song on the Billboard charts. In 1980, he managed to peak at number 88 on the Top 100 with “Let’s Do Something Cheap and Superficial.” The track was featured in the Smokey and the Bandit II soundtrack. Prior to the song, Reynolds released his only studio album Ask Me What I Am in 1973.

During his illustrious career, Reynolds wrote two memoirs: My Life. New York and But Enough About Me: A Memoir. In 1997, he helped co-write the children’s book, Barkley Unleashed: A Pirate’s Tail with author Victoria Preminger. In 2016, he reunited with Preminger for My Favorite Animal Stories.

Love Never Dies

One of Reynolds’ prolific relationships was with Sally Field. The two met on the set of Smokey and the Bandit, and they instantly fell in love. While they broke up, Field was still in Reynolds’ mind decades later. According to him, the feelings were mutual. “I spoke to her son recently. He said that his mum talks about me all the time,” he said in a 2016 interview with Daily Mail.
