Famous actress Sally Field has honored Burt Reynolds with some very special words following his recent passing.


Reynolds drew his last breath on Thursday morning, September 6, 2018, at the age of 82 after succumbing to a cardiac arrest at Jupiter Medical Hospital, in Florida.

According to Us Weekly, Field remembered the time that they spent together and how deep was the impact that Reynolds had on her life.

"There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade away. They stay alive, even 40 years later. My years with Burt never leave my mind. He will be in my history and my heart, for as long as I live. Rest, Buddy.”

Field and Reynolds always had a complex connection but, unfortunately, they never tied the knot, which would take the relationship to the next level.

They first met on the set of "Smokey and the Bandit," in 1977, and started dating that same year. In total, they were together for five years and, even though they broke up, Reynolds never got over his love for Field.



During an interview with Vanity Fair in 2015, the legendary actor confessed that Field was the love of his life and that he still loved her even though 40 years had passed.

“Even now, it’s hard on me. I don’t know why I was so stupid. Men are like that, you know. You find the perfect person, and then you do everything you can to screw it up.”

Reynolds was a very respected figure in Hollywood, not only because of his work in front of the camera but also because of his charisma and passionate nature.

He loved acting but he loved his family, friends, fans and acting students even more. Reynolds was full of life and his death was nothing but shocking and unexpected.
