Movie Legend Burt Reynolds Is Still Hurting Over His Split From Sally Field More Than Three Decades Ago, Insisting She Remains "The Love Of My Life".
The Boogie Nights star dated his Smokey and the Bandit castmate for many years after they first met in the late 1970s, but Field's soaring success drove a wedge between the couple, prompting them to part ways.
The Norma Rae actress went on to marry her second husband, film producer Alan Greisman, in 1984, while Reynolds eventually wed Loni Anderson in 1988. Both relationships ended in divorce.
The actor, who has also romanced a string of Hollywood beauties, including Faye Dunaway, Adrienne Barbeau and Kim Basinger, previously admitted Field was "the one who got away", and the 79 year old continues to "miss her terribly".

The actor has done other movies just to "pay the bills" in the past.
The news that a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel is definitely in the works 21 years after the 1993 comedy classic has been met mostly with hearty cries of "hooray" and reminiscing about the movie's poofy early '90s hair-dos, bad fashion and the endlessly funny story of a man who disguises himself as an elderly Scottish nanny in order to sneak his way back into his ex-wife's and children's lives.
Robin Williams Will Play Mrs. Doubtfire Again, In An Upcoming Sequel.
However, others have reacted with a mixture of trepidation and concern for fond childhood memories which could be about to be splattered all over a wall if Hollywood makes a classic hash of this most precarious of follow-up films. Actor Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are driving the motion for a sequel, which is said to have been in slow development since 2001, the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel reportedly stalled several times due to Columbus and Williams not being sold on any proposed new takes.
As with the too-early franchise reboot in 2012, this sequel struggles to balance the demands of a teen romance with a superhero blockbuster. The interpersonal storylines are sharply written and skilfully played by the gifted cast, but the eye-catching effects sequences feel like little more than a shiny distraction. Action fans will love the way digitally animated Spidey swings more realistically than ever down the streets of New York, but the fact remains that these scenes are cartoons. And a new template is badly needed for this genre.
It kicks off as Peter (Andrew Garfield) nearly misses his high school graduation to save the city from another crazed nutcase. His girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone) is fed up, and then crushed when Peter breaks up with her because he's worried about her safety. So she considers taking a place at Oxford University to get away. Meanwhile, Peter is also trying to understand the truth about why his parents (Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz) left him to be raised by his Aunt May (Sally Field). But he's interrupted from all of this by the arrival of old pal Harry (Dane DeHaan), back in town to inherit the family business from his dying dad (Chris Cooper) and in need of moral support from Peter.
In each of these three plot strands, Peter faces a significant dilemma that's beautifully played by Garfield as a cheeky, good guy who worries about the darkness all around him. And there's also a nefarious side-plot trying to take over the movie, as nerdy technician Max (Jamie Foxx) is transformed by an electric shock from Spider-man's biggest fan to a spark-emitting villain called Electro. This shift doesn't make sense on any level, and Harry also has a sudden personality change that's badly under-explained, forcing the film into a series of huge action showdowns along with a completely irrelevant aside about two colliding airplanes that feels tacked on to up the human stakes.

Hold on to your hats: there's going to be a 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel!
Robin Williams is set to reprise his role in the surprise sequel to the 1993 comedy, Mrs. Doubtfire, which will reportedly be directed by the original's Chris Columbus, according to THR. 21 years after the original movie, the news of a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel has come as an unexpected albeit welcome surprise for many fans of the '90s hit.
Robin Williams Will Return To His Lauded 'Mrs. Doubfire' Comedy Role For A Sequel.
Fox 2000 has tapped Elf writer David Berenbaum to write the sequel with Robin Williams attached to reprise his starring role as divorcee Daniel Hillard, who devises an outrageous plan to work his way back into his hostile wife (Sally Field) and children's lives. After creating an elaborate old lady costume and styling himself as the pleasant Scottish nanny, Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, he gets himself hired as a housekeeper and nanny to his own children.
Peter Parker is facing a period of deep confusion in every aspect of his life. No longer is everything black and white, nor is it easy to know what the right thing to do is anymore. He's struggling to cope with the death of his dear Uncle Ben, while still feeling unfamiliar with his past in regards to his parents. He's also trying to hold down a relationship with Gwen Stacy, but she ultimately adds to his troubles when she finds herself in a dilemma of her own. Meanwhile in his professional capacity as Spider-Man, he's not finding it easy to differentiate between the villains, the heroes and the just plain hard-done by. He faces deadly battles with the formidable Rhino and the rage-filled Electro; the latter of who it turns out is just as frightened of his own power as everybody else is. It turns out that there is a darker force happening elsewhere, and when his friend Harry Osborn returns, he starts to see OsCorp's sinister involvement.
