Actress Sally Field was the love of Burt Reynolds’ life, but she refused to speak to him in his final 30 years

The loss of Burt Reynolds in 2018 was felt by millions of people all across the world. The renowned actor passed away following a protracted struggle with various health conditions.

The actor left a huge legacy, including many treasured memories that former co-stars and friends now hold dear. The most touching comment came from Sally Field, a girlfriend who had been with him on and off.

Sally, who recently turned 76, may have kept quiet about the couple’s time together over the last few decades, but since Burt’s demise, she has spoken out.


Reynolds claimed that although he had several relationships that were only flings, he only had one true love. He explained how Sally Fields, a Hollywood celebrity, was the lady he would remember for the rest of his days in a startlingly open interview with Vanity Fair.

Field and Reynolds became deeply in love, and Reynolds would later admit that it was he who fought to bring Field on board for Smokey and the Bandit. However, the filmmakers weren’t persuaded and didn’t consider the actress to be “sexy enough”. However, Burt defended the actress, and Fields ultimately received the part.

“gave me a feeling that I was sexy, and I wanted to be everything he ever wanted.”
