Burt Reynolds - Burt Reynolds: 'Sally Field Was The Woman For Me'

Acting legend Burt Reynolds believes Sally Field was the love of his live and is convinced they would still be together if he had been a better partner.

The Boogie Nights star developed a reputation as a ladies' man after romancing a string of Hollywood beauties, including Faye Dunaway, Loni Anderson and Kim Basinger - but he admits the biggest regret of his personal life is letting go of Field, who he dated for several years.

He tells Piers Morgan's Life Stories, "Had I been smarter, you know, with one lady... I still would be together with her. Sally. Without a doubt. I asked her (to marry me) at the wrong time. She asked me at the wrong time. I missed out on that one, that's for sure. I think we would have been very happy, yes. I'd like to think so. I'm not sure she'd say so. She's just a very special woman. I really handled that one pretty bad."

When asked if Field knows about his feelings, he replied, "No. She does now!"

The Norma Rae actress went on to marry film producer Alan Greisman in 1984, but they divorced in 1993.
