Burt Reynolds, the man who personified machismo in such 1970s films as “Smokey and the Bandit” and “The Longest Yard,” has denied ever going under the knife to maintain his look.
The 75-year-old actor tells OK! Magazine his face is untouched. “I was never lifted. I would not have a problem with the truth, but I inherited my smooth skin from my father.”
The actor, who was nominated for an Oscar for “Boogie Nights,” did admit that too many on-screen fisticuffs required him to get his eyes tweaked.
“In the mid ’80s, after some fights in a film, I had to have my eyes done,” he says. “For one, I almost went blind because I got black powder in my eye. Also I had terrible sacks under my eyes from the many fist fights. My eyes were not in form any more. I had that corrected.”
Reynolds made no mention of his ever-evolving hairline.
