Though it’s been years since they were a couple, Burt Reynolds admitted that he was still in love with his former co-star and girlfriend Sally Field. When Burt was asked during a TODAY interview who the love of his life was, the 82-year-old candidly opened up about his five-year romance with Sally, 71.
“You’ve had an incredible career [with] so many great roles and so many great loves,” TODAY co-anchor Hoda Kotb said during her Thursday, March 15 sit-down with Burt. “But I’ve always wondered; when I think about the women in your life — who would you consider the love of your life?” Burt then replied, “You’re naughty, you really are.

Reynolds, who had been spotted using a cane at recent public appearances, enjoyed an iconic 1970s relationship with Field that started when they co-starred in the hit action-comedy Smokey and the Bandit in 1977 and subsequently dated for five years.
