Field is a Hollywood gem with her impeccable acting skills and charms, but her life wasn't always as glamorous as it seems to be.

THE HIDDEN PAIN BEHIND THAT BEAUTIFUL SMILE

Back in 2018, the actress released a memoir called "In Pieces" wherein she revealed the heartbreaking stories of her past.

The same year, she spoke to The New York Times about her memoir, sharing how she felt compelled to open up about the ups and downs of her life, and how she got through them to become the woman she is today.

“I didn’t know I had a voice,” she said. “I was shaking all over to do it. But I felt strengthened by that faceless mass of unknown people. When I laid it out there, I felt them giving me something back.”

THE ABUSE SHE ENDURED

Field went through some horrible experiences as she grew up--her stepfather, Jock Mahoney, sexually abused her until she turned 14.

She had many such experiences in the film industry as well when she found herself in compromising situations with some men.

It would have been so much easier if I’d only felt one thing, if Jocko had been nothing but cruel and frightening. But he wasn’t. He could be magical, the Pied Piper with our family as his entranced followers," she recalled.

She later dated her "Smokey and the Bandit" co-star, Burt Reynolds. The actor passed away last year.

BURT WAS A "CONTROL FREAK

Filed and Reynolds were in love, but their relationship was not all rainbows and butterflies. The couple would often get into heated arguments, with Reynolds even physically abusing Field.

According to Field, her relationship with Reynolds reminded her of her abusive stepfather. He belittled her acting career and got jealous every time he saw her with another man.
