Sally Field is 'glad' Burt Reynolds won't read her upcoming memoir
Sally Field will soon be releasing a memoir but she is glad that Burt Reynolds won't be able to read it because it would 'hurt him.'
The actress, who was in a relationship with Reynolds from 1977 to 1982, opens up about her feelings in her upcoming book, "In Pieces,' and some of the facts in it would have been hard for Reynolds to read.
Field made the revelation during a very special interview with The New York Times, which was published was on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.
According to the two-time Academy Award winner, the memoir's content would seriously hurt Reynold's feelings if he ever had the chance to read it. Follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa to learn more.
IT WOULD UPSET HIM
Although Field, who Reynolds considered to be the love of his life, wasn't glad to see the actor draw his last breath, she felt relieved because he wouldn't have to deal with the stress that the book would cause him.
"In Pieces" would raise quite a lot of questions and Reynolds would be asked about them non-stop, having to defend himself from them; plus, Field shared that the actor would have probably lashed out over the memoir.
A CONFUSING RELATIONSHIP
The book, which is set to be out on September 18, will include several memories of the time they spent together, and, while writing it, Field confessed that she was 'flooded with feelings and nostalgia' about him.
Field described her relationship with the late 82-year-old as 'confusing and complicated, and not without loving and caring, but really complicated and hurtful' to her.
The actress also wrote about her stepfather, Jock Mahoney, who was both an actor and a stuntman, and how he would frequently call her into his bedroom alone.

"In Pieces" promises to be a very personal and painful work, a concept that Field isn't unfamiliar with. When Reynolds passed away on September 6, she paid tribute to him by saying that he would always be in her history and heart.
