Burt Reynolds made out like a bandit on his 80th birthday! Only in the new issue of Closer Weekly, on newsstands now, insiders reveal exclusive details about the celebratory bash!
About 50 of Burt’s closest pals and family visited his 153-acre Jupiter, Fla., ranch on Thursday, Feb. 11 for the bash. “A tent was set up in his large garden for a dinner party, decorated with a fun Western theme,” an insider reveals of the Gunsmoke vet. “As a mariachi band played, guests were encouraged to wear their boots and kick up their heels!”

The insider tells Closer, “Burt was visibly moved by the sentiments,” in a video from pals like David DeLuise (son of Burt’s late friend Dom) and Shamus co-star Dyan Cannon. “I don’t care what age Burt is now,” Dyan reveals to Closer. “He’s still sexy!”
Burt was presented with a cake topped by a cowboy hat (seen in the exclusive pic above) and some of his gifts included a Smokey and the Bandit belt and an “80th Burtday” director’s clapboard.
