After hearing the news of Dom DeLuise's death, Burt Reynolds released a statement to "Extra" describing what a great guy Dom was.

"I was thinking about this the other day," Burt's statement reads. "As you get older, and start to lose people you love, you think about it more, and I was dreading this moment. Dom always made you feel better when he was around and there will never be another like him. I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. I will miss him very much."

Longtime friends Burt and Dom starred in multiple movies together, including "Smokey and the Bandit II," "Cannonball Run I & II," "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" and "The End."
