[ # ] Burt Reynolds says the studio didn’t want Sally Field in Smokey and the Bandit
May 25th, 2017 under Burt Reynolds, Sally Field


When we think of Sally Field, we think of one of the greatest actress of all time. But in the mid-’70s, she was seen as America’s Sweetheart because she was known as Gidget and The Flying Nun.

It was those roles, that made the producers of Smokey and the Bandit think she was wrong for the part when Burt Reynolds suggested her. He told Closer the producers said, “I was told she was not sexy — she was the Flying Nun,” adding, “I told [the Smokey producers], ‘Trust me, talent is sexy. She is talented and sexy.'” And boy is she talented. She is even more talented aka sexy today, 40 years later. That is why we like her, we really, really like her.
