Book overview

In But Enough About Me, legendary film actor and Hollywood superstar Burt Reynolds recalls the people who shaped his life and career, for better or for worse. From Cary Grant, Clint Eastwood and Robert Mitchum to Bette Davis, Marlon Brando and Liza Minnelli, Burt pays homage to those he loves and respects, acknowledges those who’ve stayed loyal, and calls out the assholes he can’t forgive.

Recalling a life and career spanning over 50 glorious years, Burt gives special attention to the two great loves of his life, Dinah Shore and Sally Field, his son, Quinton, as well as to the countless people who got in his way on his journey to Hollywood domination. With chapters on his early childhood, how he discovered acting, played poker with Frank Sinatra, received directing advice from Orson Welles, his golden years in Hollywood, his comeback in the late 1990s, and how his life and art led him to found the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre, But Enough About Me is the gripping and eye-opening story of one of cinema’s true greats.
