    Aww, sad. He was quite the sex symbol in his day. Seemed like a nice guy with a good sense of humor.

    Reynolds was such a pill. Tres chic yet a hayseed country Jake at the same time. Hot bold glance, work-thickened shoulders. And sometimes a little too preoccupied with his own broadness. But withal a great actor and fine Southern gentleman. We'll miss you Burt.

    Reynolds told The Daily Beast in 2016 that he worried he had made a mistake posing for Cosmo: "I thought I’d made a horrible mistake and I wished I hadn’t done it!” he said. "A lot of people took it in the spirit that it was meant. They saw that I was smiling and it was meant to be a Playboy takeoff. I had fun, but as I remember the only way I could do it was I had to have a few toddies before… quite a few, in fact. It took a few hours and then I kind of wobbled home. I wobbled in there and I wobbled out, and hoped for the best."

    The centerfold established Reynolds as a sex symbol — and played as crucial a role in launching him to stardom as his performance in Deliverance. And at the time, Reynolds wasn’t ashamed of it — at least not totally. “What the hell, it’s intended as a put-down of Playboy, which I hate,” he told a young Roger Ebert. “They ought to sell it with raincoats.” He agreed to the shoot in part because he didn’t have any publicity stills: “So what can I lose?” he thought, “If something comes out good, I can always crop it, right?"

    The shoot took place at a famous Italian photographer’s studio, and when he arrived, it was freezing — “so if they want pictures of my thing, it’s a bad day” — but they put him on the rug and gave him some booze and a Saint Bernard. “The guy’s shooting away, and after a while it begins to seem like fun,” Reynolds continued. “Oh, well. As long as you’re reliving each moment to the fullest, what the hell difference does it make? They showed me the photographs, and I chose the one they’re going to use. It doesn’t show anything, just a little pubic hair.”
