A scandalous, sentimental, no-holds-barred, New York Times bestselling memoir from one of Hollywood’s most enduring and resilient stars.
Burt Reynolds is a Hollywood leading man known for his legendary performances, sex symbol status, and infamous Hollywood romances. In his decades of stardom, Reynolds has seen it all. But Enough About Me will, in his words, “call out the assholes,” try to make amends for “being the asshole myself on too many occasions,” and pay homage to the superstars and ordinary heroes he has come to love and respect.
Beginning with Reynolds’s adolescence as a notable football player in South Florida and the devastating car accident that ended his sports career and helped steer him toward acting, But Enough About Me then chronicles Reynolds’s meteoric rise to fame. From Oscar nominations, to the spread in Cosmopolitan magazine, to the financial decisions that took him from rich to poor and back again, Reynolds shares the wisdom that has come from his many highs and lows.
He also opens up about his romances and breakups with some of Hollywood’s leading women, including the “two loves of his life,” Dinah Shore and Sally Field, and his turbulent relationship with Loni Anderson, to whom he was forced to pay record-setting amounts of alimony and child support after the couple divorced. Through it all, Reynolds reflects on his personal pitfalls and recoveries and focuses on his legacy as a father and acting teacher.

True to its title "But Enough About Me" Burt Reynolds doesn't divulge too much about himself in his book. It has tid bits here and there about his family particularly his strict father who was in the military before becoming the chief of police of a small town in southern Florida near Miami and Burt's desire to make his father proud of his son "Buddy" as he was then called. For the longest time, his father didn't think acting was a "real" job. He also writes about his school years and his love of sports growing up, his years acting on stage and his stunt work before and after becoming a move actor.
I would not call this book a true memoir since the author chose to write mostly about people that he has encountered in his life, some in his personal life but mostly in his professional life and how some of them effected him. He actually has whole chapters devoted to each person that he chose to write about. I found some of the chapters really...
I have always liked Burt Reynolds. I was so surprised by his centerfold in Cosmopolitan Magazine I couldn't stop staring at it for 2 days. I even passed it around to my friends, because as I saw it, it was art. Also I love movies and enjoy reading about movie stars and all their little stories and secrets. This is a really good book, which I finished in record time. Couldn't put it down. A combination of good looks and humor in a man is hard to beat. Simply irresistible. From Rock Hudson (who is not mentioned in the book) to Cary Grant (who is) I love handsome men with a sense of humor. Burt is all that, and he makes this an interesting book to enjoy. He tells many incidents in the life of his friends, and he has met many interesting people in his movie career. Some he liked, and some he didn't, and he tells why he didn't. This is not a sugar-coated version of Hollywood life. He tells it like it is. And he is very honest and readily admits the mistakes he made, both in selection...
