Veteran movie star Burt Reynolds is preparing to lift the lid on his failed romances with actresses Sally Field and Loni Anderson in an upcoming memoir.

The Boogie Nights star, 78, developed a reputation as a ladies' man during his Hollywood heyday, dating the likes of Faye Dunaway and Kim Basinger, and enjoying marriages with British comedienne Judy Carne and Anderson.

He previously admitted his biggest regret in his personal life was letting go of the love of his life, Steel Magnolias star Field, and now he is set to reveal all about the relationships in But Enough About Me.

The autobiography, which will feature a foreword by his pal and Deliverance co-star Jon Voight, will also detail his friendships with fellow showbiz legends Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra, Clint Eastwood and Bette Davis, and it will revisit his most famous screen projects, including Deliverance, Smokey and the Bandit, The Longest Yard and Boogie Nights, which earned him an Oscar nomination for his role as porn director Jack Horner.

A statement released by Reynolds reads: "Setting the record straight is something that I have wanted to do for a while now, and with this book I will. This will be a project that will go into many areas I have never discussed."

But Enough About Me is scheduled for release by publishers at G.P. Putnam's Sons next year (15).
