Washington DC, [USA] Sep 07 (ANI): Several Hollywood celebrities expressed their grief over the demise of their good 'friend' Burt Reynolds. The 82-year-old star died after suffering a cardiac arrest on Thursday in America's Florida state.
Hollywood veteran Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to condole Reynold's death and said that he derived inspiration from the actor, who was one of his heroes.
Schwarzenegger tweeted, "Burt Reynolds was one of my heroes. He was a trailblazer. He showed the way to transition from being an athlete to being the highest paid actor, and he always inspired me. He also had a great sense of humor - check out his Tonight Show clips. My thoughts are with his family."

'Transformers' actor Mark Wahlberg too remembered the legend and tweeted, "Rest in peace to a legend and a friend. #BurtReynolds"

'This is 40' star Lena Dunham remembered Reynolds as the perfect definition of a "golden man".

Hollywood's funny man Adam Sandler remembered Reynolds and offered his condolences to the family of Reynolds. "Burt Reynolds. True legend. Our hero. Funny as hell and a for-real badass. So many great movies. So many great stories. Such a great Dad. Will be missed by all. Deepest condolences to his family," Sandler tweeted.

Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone also expressed his sorrow over Reynolds' death and posted a picture with him on Instagram.
He captioned, "A sad day, my friend BURT REYNOLDS Has passed away. I remember him back in 1979, he always reminded me that I should've cast him as Colonel Trautman in FIRST BLOOD, I said that's impossible, because you're too expensive and too famous, and probably tougher than Rambo! He laughed, He had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed his company so much... RIP Buddy"
