As handsome as his father

Burt Reynolds was one of the greatest representatives of the Golden Era of Hollywood. The actor passed away in 2018, at the age of 82, from cardiac arrest.

But except for his incredible heritage to the film industry, Reynolds has another great reminder of him – his grown-up son, Quinton.

“I love him very much”

Though his parents’ divorce had a hard impact on Quinton, the father and son managed to go through the tough period and make the things work for them.

In an interview with Closer Weekly, the Smokey and the Bandit star commented on his relationship with his son.

Reynolds said:

He is my greatest achievement… He never asked for any help with his career, he did it all himself, and I’m so proud of him. I love him very much.

Quinton also chose a career in cinematography. He works as a camera assistant in Hollywood.

Burt Reynolds’ will

After Burt’s demise in 2018, the actor made the headlines when his will was revealed to the public. It says that Reynolds reportedly cut his son, Quinton, out of his will, and called for his niece to be in charge of it.

As for Quinton, the actor left him money through trust. According to The Sun, the actor chose this way in order to avoid paying taxes.

We won’t comment on Reynolds’ final will because we think he had a right to do as he wanted. One thing we can say for sure is that Burt was a doting dad to his son, who meant the whole world to him. And that’s what really matters!

Do you agree?
