Burt Reynolds enters rehab

Posted on

Oscar-nominated actor Burt Reynolds has entered drug rehab, People.com has confirmed. “After a recent back surgery, Mr. Reynolds felt like he was going through hell and after a while, realized he was a prisoner of prescription pain pills,” his manager said in a statement. “He checked himself into rehab in order to regain control of his life.” Reynolds, 73, earned a Best Supporting Actor nod for 1997’s Boogie Nights.
