Dolly Parton, Sally Field and other celebrities paid tribute Thursday to legendary actor Burt Reynolds, who died at age 82.

“Oh how sad I am today along with Burt’s millions of fans around the world as we mourn one of our favorite leading men,” Parton tweeted. “I know we will always remember his funny laugh, that mischievous sparkle in his eyes, and his quirky sense of humor. You will always be my favorite sheriff, rest in peace my little buddy. I will always love you, Dolly.”

Parton and Reynolds starred in the 1982 film “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas.”

“There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade away,” Field said in a statement. “They stay alive, even forty years later. My years with Burt never leave my mind. He will be in my history and my heart, for as long as I live. Rest, Buddy.”

“As THE movie star of my childhood, the Bandit stole our hearts for decades,” wrote Kevin Smith. I always loved how Burt Reynolds worked with his friends as often as he could and then showcased the fun of movie-making in the end credits of his flicks. He was true American icon. Hate to see him go.”

“Rest in peace to a legend and a friend,” tweeted Mark Wahlberg.
