Burt Reynolds on Sally Field romance: 'She was 7 when I fell in love with her'

Burt Reynolds has had a number of relationships with stars like Loni Anderson, Adrienne Barbeau, and Dinah Shore and on "Today" he was asked by Hoda Kotb, which woman was the love of his life. Reynolds opened up like the throttle of his Trans Am in Smokey and the Bandit and picked a different leading lady. Reynolds answered, “Sally.” Kotb tried to clarify, “Sally Field?"“No, Sally Wolfergosh. Yes, Sally Field,” Reynolds retorted. He also said, "The actor cryptically said about Field, “Well, she was seven when I fell in love with her. She stayed seven for about 11 years.” He went on to say how he insisted that Field be cast in "Smokey and the Bandit," “I wanted her really bad for Smokey and they said she wasn’t sexy, and I said, ‘You don’t get it. Talent is sexy.’ And she’s got that.”
