‘The Longest Yard’ star in his memoir titled ‘But Enough About Me: A Memoir’ had mentioned that he always had “wanted to experience everything” before he passes away, reported E! Online.
In his long career, he appeared in Broadway shows before embarking on a journey to become a movie star. 1978 to 1982 were the years when he leaped into stardom.
Recently, he was working on several projects including ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ alongside Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Burt is survived by his son Quinton, who was adopted by the actor when the latter was just three-day-old.
