Speaking about his upcoming film and costars, he was asked who he most regretted working with in his career.


Burt Reynolds' new movie, The Last Movie Star, features himself in flashbacks from a number of his older films as his character imagines himself interacting with younger versions of himself throughout his acting career.

As reported by Closer Weekly, while promoting the new film, Reynolds admitted to the publication that the only person he would go back in time and warn his real younger self not to work with is actress Kathleen Turner.

The pair were the leads for the 1988 film Switching Channels.

But he wasn't done with insulting her there. On an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! on March 15, he told host Andy Cohen that Turner was probably the most overrated actress of the 1970's and 1980's.


While he had nothing but contempt for Turner, there was plenty of love for other leading ladies in his life, particularly for Dolly Parton whom he starred alongside in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Sally Field in Smokey.

He called Parton a "double thrill" to work with, while admitting it was him who managed to convince studio executives to cast Field in her role.

"They said, 'She’s not sexy,' and I said, 'You’re idiots. Talent is sexy.' And she’s an amazing talent," he explained.

It's not the first time he expressed such admiration of Field. The pair dated for a while, and even today Reynolds considers her to be the love of his life.


Today host Hoda Kotb asked the actor who he would consider to be the leading lady in his private life, and Reynolds was candid in his response.

"You're naughty, you really are. I'm dead in the water, no matter what I say. Well, she was [age] seven when I fell in love with her and she stayed seven for about 11 years. I would say, Sally," he answered.

Reynolds' new film shows clips from his early acting days, including scenes from his classic movies like Deliverance and Smokey and the Bandit.
