Burt Reynolds died after rehearsing lines for his final movie role, Quentin Tarontinos Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

The 82-year-old actor passed away in September 2018 before shooting any scenes for the film, in which he was set to appear as a blind ranch owner but the movies director, Quentin Tarantino, claims one of the final things the screen legend did before suffering a heart attack was go through his script with his assistant.

I found out from three different people that the last thing he did just before he died was run lines with his assistant. Then he went to the bathroom, and thats when he had his heart attack, Tarantino said.

Speaking to Esquire magazine, Brad Pitt also revealed how he spent two of the greatest moments of his career on set with the Oscar-nominated actor.

Ill tell you one of the greatest moments Ive had in these however many years weve been at it in this town: getting to spend two days with Burt Reynolds on this film, he said.

Youve gotta understand, for me, growing up in the Ozarks and watching Smokey And The Bandit, you know, he was the guy. Virile. Always had something sharp to say – funny as s**t. A great dresser. Oh, man.

And I had never met him, so being there with him reminded me of how much I enjoyed him as a kid. And then getting to spend those days with him in rehearsal, I was really touched by him.
