This might be better than The Notebook. Burt Reynolds reunited with his high school sweetheart during a book signing over the weekend — and it was beyond adorable.
The Hollywood legend, 80, reconnected with his ex Ann Lawlor Scurry at the Palm Beach Book Festival in West Palm Beach, Florida, Saturday, April 2. Lawlor Scurry attended his Q&A at the Norton Museum, where he was promoting his memoir, But Enough About Me.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Lawlor Scurry took part in the actor’s discussion. “Who was your best girl in high school?” she asked.
“Well, I can’t see. But I have a feeling it was you,” Reynolds replied. While signing Lawlor Scurry’s book later, he quipped: “I got my first kiss from her.”
Reynolds also reportedly talked about one of his other exes at the event — Sally Field. The pair famously dated for nearly five years after they met on the set of the 1977 comedy Smokey and the Bandit.
“[I was] so in love with [her], it was a joke. She didn’t get it,” Reynolds said, via the Palm Beach Post.
“The love or the joke?” Hollywood historian Scott Eyman asked him. Reynolds grinned and replied: “Both.”
Reynolds also opened up about Field last year. “I do miss her. I think she was one of the most underrated actresses, you know?” he told Entertainment Tonight in November 2015. “She was the best actress I ever worked with.”
Reynolds was previously married to dancer Judy Carne (1963 to 1965) and actress Loni Anderson (1988 to 1994), with whom he shares son Quinton A. Reynolds, 27. His other former flames include the late singer Dinah Shore and tennis player Chris Evert.
