The world was saddened Thursday when the news of Burt Reynold's death circulated across news outlets. The actor had a laundry list of iconic roles in major movies such as Boogie Nights and Friday Night Lights.
"I don’t think there’s any actor who doesn’t think he’s made bad career choices," Reynold said. "I was recently with my friend Clint Eastwood, who’s had one of the most successful careers of all. We were laughing about the mistakes we made and he talked about a couple of films he wished he hadn’t made. I have a lot more than that! You learn from it though – you learn to be a better actor."

However, Reynolds let it be known that even though the decision to turn down those roles may have not been the best, he did not regret them.
"It seemed like a good idea at the time – but now I think it was really stupid," the late actor, who also turned down the role of Batman in the 1960s TV series, said. "But you can’t regret things like that, you have to move on."
