When we did Q&As at different events, that was always a popular question about him and Sally, and he was always really kind to Ms. Fields. Never had anything bad to say. Hollywood was a tough time in the '70s. Burt had a lot of temptation, being the Hollywood sex symbol that he was. But that took a toll on their relationship. He said that was always the one he let slip away. And if he had it to do again, he would have spent more time and tried to make that work out.

In addition, Burt Reynolds has once said that Sally Field was the love of his life. Moreover, he even called himself stupid for losing such a great woman.

Even now, it’s hard on me. I don’t know why I was so stupid. Men are like that, you know. You find the perfect person, and then you do everything you can to screw it up.

Burt Reynolds and actress Sally Field separated many years ago, but he still missed her a lot and claimed she was perfect.
