Notes

  1. ^ a b Severalsources list Waycross, Georgia as Reynolds's birthplace ("Birthplace". Turner Classic Movies. http://www.tcmdb.com/participant/participant.jsp?participantId=160584. , "Birthplace". Chicago Sun-Times (article from 2007). http://www.suntimes.com/lifestyles/hoekstra/240075,CST-FTR-rv02.article.  and "Birthplace". Biography Channel. http://www.thebiographychannel.co.uk/biography_story/509:127/1/Burt_Reynolds.htm. ), for example, while other sources show that he was born in Lansing, Michigan (Burt Reynolds's Official website), (NNBD and The Palm Beach Post, June 28, 2000). Reynolds's autobiography (My Life) does not name his birthplace, although it does cover his childhood in Lansing, and fails to mention Waycross at all.

The Oscar-nominated actor received the honour at a benefit gala with musical guest Chantal Kreviazuk in Toronto on September 10, 2007. Best Buddies Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to fostering friendships between students and individuals with intellectual disabilities. Reynolds is receiving its annual award for his decades-long "commitment to aiding and inspiring youth by supporting drama education and humanitarian causes", said the group. Such causes include the Burt Reynolds Institute for Theatre in Tequest, Florida, founded by the legendary actor in 1979. Donations by the star have also helped establish the Burt Reynolds Eminent Scholar Chair in Regional and Professional Theatre at Florida State University, and the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Florida Reynolds has already been honoured for his efforts in aiding the children of Chernobyl.
