Sally Field reveals why ‘jealous’ ex Burt Reynolds refused to attend Oscars with her
Sally Fields has revealed her Academy Awards success during the 80s became a major point of contention with ex-boyfriend Burt Reynolds.

Sally Field won big at the 1980 Oscars but despite her success, she recently opened up about her then-boyfriend and actor Burt Reynolds, who was unsupportive.

That year, her starring role in Norma Rae landed her an Academy Award but the recognition became a major point of contention point as Burt refused to attend the ceremony with her.

In Dave Karger’s upcoming book 50 Oscar Night, the actress revealed that her then-boyfriend who died in 2018 at 82 even tried to talk her out of going.

According to Sally, the Boogie Nights star also had this attitude towards other prestigious ceremonies during her Norma Rae publicity campaign.

According to Sally, the Boogie Nights star also had this attitude towards other prestigious ceremonies during her Norma Rae publicity campaign.

In an interview with People, Sally said: “He really was not a nice guy around me then.

Ahead of the 1908’s Oscars, Burt told the actress he “was not going to go”

But Reynolds had been telegraphing an alleged lack of support for his then-girlfriend’s most praised performance to date for months.

Norma Rae was set to premiere at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival, but Reynolds urged her not to attend the star-studded festival.

“He did not want me to go to Cannes at all,” Sally told the author, she continued: “He said, ‘You don’t think you’re going to win anything, do you?’”

Sally admitted that she “didn’t know what to do” about her lack of a date but thankfully actor David Steinberg and his then-wife Judy Marcione attended with her.

She recalled: “Then David said, ‘Well, for God’s sakes, we’ll take you,’ he and Judy made it a big celebration.

“They picked me up in a limousine and had champagne in the car. They made it just wonderful fun.”
