BTWF roles: Burt Reynolds in Riverboat
March 20th, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Burt Reynolds. [ Comments: none ]

Before Burt Reynolds was driving trucks in Smokey and the Bandit, he was steering the Riverboat. How different that the 23-year-old look without facial hair back in 1959?


Burt Reynolds says that Sally Field is not interested in getting back with him
March 20th, 2018 under Burt Reynolds, Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: 1 ]

For years, Burt Reynolds has said that Sally Field is the one that got away. Yesterday, when he was on Conan, the host wanted to know if they still communicate. The Bandit told him, “I try. She doesn’t seem to be as interested as I am to have a relationship, start up again.” Then the actor added, “I understand that,” and the audience gave him a sad ahhh.

He admits that he still sends her notes and postcards to no avail. Now he is going to try to send her money. Will it work? Does not sound like it.

Personally, I am more surprised that she is single than her rejecting Reynolds now. I am shocked that no one is with her now. I would love to see her with Jack Nicholson, the good girl with the very bad boy! They would be so cute together!


Burt Reynolds reveals he has ‘very small hands’
March 19th, 2018 under Burt Reynolds, Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]

Burt Reynolds was on Conan O’Brien’s talk show tonight and the latter wanted to know everything about the former. For example, he wanted to know more about that time the Bandit took it all off for Cosmo.

Back in 1972, he shocked and delighted the world by being the first huge male celebrity to pose naked for a Cosmopolitan centerfold and 45 years later we are still talking about. Was he nervous to do that? The last movie star told the TBS host that he got plastered for the shoot.

When he got there, the photographer told him about the first scene they were going to shoot for that day. Reynolds thought he was only being photographed nude on the couch. Eventually he decided to go with and told the photographer that he was going to take off his robe and the man behind the camera should roll with it.

When it was finally time, off came the robe and on went his hands over his longest yard. At that moment, he shared with us his realization, “I’m sad to say, I have very small hands.”

Thanks to a 2016 presidential debate, we all know what that means. Or should I say used to mean?


Burt Reynolds once got pubic hair sent to him
March 16th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Burt Reynolds. [ Comments: none ]

Burt Reynolds continued his media tour for The Last Movie Star on Watch What Happens Live yesterday and he continued to shock us all. For the after show, someone asked him what was the weirdest piece of fan mail he got after he did a naked centerfold for Cosmo.

He revealed, “I was sent pubic hair…and it was very nice.” What did he do with his present that came wrapped in wax paper? He says, “I have it on my wall.” That has to be a conversation piece.

And talking about conversation pieces, Andy Cohen asked him about several of the roles he turned down throughout his career. The first role they talked about was Michael Corleone in The Godfather. Marlon Brando threatened to quit if he got the part that went to Al Pacino. Next up, he turned down James Bond because he did not think an American should play the spy. He regrets that stance. Did you know he was offered Richard Gere’s part in Pretty Woman? How does he feel about turning that one down? He simply said, “I am an idiot.”

The next role he was willing to kill for, but he could not out drink it or out smoke Jack Nicholson. Therefore, Jack remained the star of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Jack also got another Oscar for a role that Burt does not remember turning down and that was Terms of Endearment.

It gets worse, imagine him as Han Solo. He turned that one down because he does not like Science Fiction movies. Let’s be honest it would have been too much mustache gorgeousness if both Billy Dee Williams and him were in the film.

And then there was one more. One that made Angela Bassete say, “Stop!” Then she added, “It’s amazing he had a career.” That movie was Die Hard. Although, he does not remember turning that role.

Burt some good choices in career and made a lot of stupid ones too. See all of the above.


Who would Burt Reynolds want to play him in a biopic?
March 15th, 2018 under Burt Reynolds, Kathie Lee and Hoda. [ Comments: none ]

Burt Reynolds was on Today this morning to talk about his film The Last Movie Star. The sex symbol told her that watching this movie is very emotional for him because it is stuff that he is going through now. Stuff like people telling the 82-year-old to retire and get out of the business. Even though he said that, he is still happy he did this movie.

Then Hoda Kotb wanted to know if they made a movie about the movie star, who would he want to play him. Without hesitation, he told her George Clooney. Why is the guy? He said, “Well, why not?…Not as good looking but he still has a lot of other things.”

Even though Clooney does not look like the legend, he does have that suaveness and sexiness that Reynolds used to have. I say used to have, and this is hard for me to say, but that was a very uncomfortable interview to watch. Hats off to Kotb for handling it so well, but you felt for bad for her having to go through that chat with him. Especially at the end when he said to her, I am so happy for you for not having the lips larger.” What does that mean? So weird and sad to watch. But again admirable for her to handling with such class. It is why she deserves the promotion that she recently got at Today.
