Jimmy Fallon and his wife got to enjoy a quiet dinner at an upscale Hamptons restaurant last week without being interrupted by other diners. They were so grateful to be left alone that they decided to pick up the check for the table next to them. The restaurant’s manager overheard two couples sitting at the next table debating whether or not to talk to the Tonight Show host. They ultimately decided to leave them alone and gave them their privacy. Apparently, Fallon was also aware of them and was so appreciative that he walked over to say hello and offered to pick up their $1,136 tab. He told them, “I appreciate the fact that you gave us privacy and I want to thank you for that and I wanted to do something nice for you.” Talk About It: If you ever see Fallon and his wife at a restaurant, try to get the table next to them and make sure you leave them alone.
Burt Reynolds died yesterday at the age of 82. The actor suffered a heart attack Thursday in Florida. He was transported to a hospital after going into cardiac arrest. His family was by his side when he passed. The 911 call, made just after noon, revealed a male caller telling emergency operators that Reynolds was experiencing trouble breathing and had chest pain. He was awake, but not answering questions. Reynolds had heart problems for years and underwent major heart surgery in 2010. The actor, who had nearly 200 film and TV credits, also starred in multiple successful films including 1974’s The Longest Yard, 1977’s Smokey and the Bandit, 1996’s Striptease and 1997’s Boogie Nights.

Reynolds’ movie, Defining Moments is set to be released in December of this year.
