    BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME
  • Reynolds actually passed when Marilyn Monroe made a pass at him. (Ditto: Greta Garbo).
  • A terrible car wreck (he crashed into a truck) when he was a student at Florida State derailed his once-promising (possibly pro) football career.
  • He got battered and bruised—and nearly drowned—after going over a waterfall while filming 1972’s Deliverance.
  • He says that posing nude in Cosmopolitan magazine back in 1972 was a fiasco and “one of the biggest mistakes I’ve ever made.”
  • Reynolds was very close with Bette Davis, who told him all about her great dislike of Joan Crawford.
  • He was the first actor to guest host The Tonight Show, where Reynolds appeared as a guest over 100 times.
  • Incredibly, the super-successful Reynolds was once bankrupt. (“It’s not pleasant,” he says. “People treat you like a leper. They think their money will disappear if they touch you.”
