Sally Field claims that Burt Reynolds ‘created’ her as the love of his life: ‘I was not.’

Burt Reynolds and Sally Field’s relationship wasn’t what many thought it to be. Reynolds, known for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” revealed in 2015, three years before his passing, that he wasn’t in love with Field, contrary to popular belief. Reflecting on their romance that began on the set of “Smokey and the Bandit” in 1977, Reynolds expressed regret for not being able to make it work.

Field, in a recent interview, shared that Reynolds had reimagined their relationship, believing she was more important to him than she actually was. However, she clarified that Reynolds wasn’t the right match for her, stating, “He was not someone I could be around.”

In her journal, “In Pieces,” released shortly after Reynolds’ passing, Field delved into their complicated relationship, shedding light on Reynolds’ drug use during the filming of “Smokey and the Bandit” and describing him as dominating and abusive.
