A scandalous, sentimental, no-holds-barred, New York Times bestselling memoir from one of Hollywood’s most enduring and resilient stars.
Burt Reynolds is a Hollywood leading man known for his legendary performances, sex symbol status, and infamous Hollywood romances. In his decades of stardom, Reynolds has seen it all. But Enough About Me will, in his words, “call out the a*****es,” try to make amends for “being the a*****e myself on too many occasions,” and pay homage to the superstars and ordinary heroes he has come to love and respect.
Beginning with Reynolds’s adolescence as a notable football player in South Florida and the devastating car accident that ended his sports career and helped steer him toward acting, But Enough About Me then chronicles Reynolds’s meteoric rise to fame. From Oscar nominations, to the spread in Cosmopolitan magazine, to the financial decisions that took him from rich to poor and back again, Reynolds shares the wisdom that has come from his many highs and lows.
He also opens up about his romances and breakups with some of Hollywood’s leading women, including the “two loves of his life,” Dinah Shore and Sally Field, and his turbulent relationship with Loni Anderson, to whom he was forced to pay record-setting amounts of alimony and child support after the couple divorced. Through it all, Reynolds reflects on his personal pitfalls and recoveries and focuses on his legacy as a father and acting teacher.
Not Enough About Burt
Been a fan since I first saw him on the Twilight Zone. My mom bought me his centerfold poster in 1972. I only wish I still owned that poster.
Saw him on the Colbert show the other day and immediately downloaded the book. Loved the book and enjoyed reading about his life and his passions.
Best wishes to you and the success of your book. You've brought such joy to my life from your many tv shows and movies.
We love you Burt.
Enough About Me / Burt Reynolds
The book was a pleasant surprise. I was left thinking he's a decent, honest, witty guy who has talent and decided to enjoy it more than market it. His anecdotes about the people he knew are funny or interesting and always self-effacing.
Treat yourself and buy it
If you are in your 50s or older where you remember Burt, Lonnie, Deliverance, Johnny Carson, Frank Sinatra and the list goes on, you will truly enjoy this book. Burt knew ll the greats of the 50s through the 90s and he tells you honestly about them. I was impressed with Burt's knowledge of the industry, too. I didn't think he took acting seriously, but he did and does. Thanks, Burt, for the memories!
