Celebrities are taking to social media to mourn the passing of screen legend and 70s sex symbol Burt Reynolds, who died at the age of 82 from a heart attack in Florida on Thursday morning.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was one of the first to comment, calling Reynolds one of his “heroes.” “He was a trailblazer,” he tweeted.

Kate Hudson shared a photo of her and her mother, Goldie Hawn, with Reynolds. She captioned the old black and white shot with a broken heart emoji. Meanwhile, Mark Wahlberg posted a shot of Reynolds and himself from the sets of 'Boogie Nights', captioning the post with "Rest in peace to a legend and a friend." Fans will remember that Reynold was nominated for an Oscar in 1997 for the best supporting actor for his role as porn director Jack Horner in 'Boogie Knights'.

An unlikely tribute came from WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who shared a picture of Ric Flair, Eric Bischoff and himself with Reynolds, and said meeting him "made it feel like Christmas morning."
