Burt Reynolds is 76

  Since Tony Van Helsing asked, I did a little digging.  Believe me, in this day and age of Google, it wasn't hard (that's what she said).  
  
  If I didn't have a computer, I would have just said, "Eff it." and gone to watch football.  Then again, if I didn't have a computer, I wouldn't be able to write on Blogger.  Hmmmm....now there's a grim thought.
  
  Anyway, Tony, since you brought it up...

Of course, when seen through rose-colored glasses, he doesn't look a day over 75.

  1. Only if rose-colored glasses come with a dose of LSD!

  4. Poor Burt Reynolds, I guess this is proof that no matter what everybody ages eventually. Thank God he's still alive like Ruth says though, he's such a legend.

  5. My male chauvinist boss ordered me to take down the centerfold poster I had hanging on my wall next to my desk of Burt, the one he did for Cosmopolitan magazine. I objected and refused to do so until he took down the playgirl of the month playboy calendar that he had hanging on the back of his office door.
    Ahh, office culture of the ’70’s, where men wore the pants and women weren’t allowed to.

  6. Um, I don't think he looks all that bad. Then again, I had a thing for Sam Elliott when I was sixteen...

  7. He's still got at least 10 good years

  8. I think he still looks okay, but the glasses have got to go.

    1. Yeah, I know. What was he thinking? The rug looks okay, but those glasses....

  9. Burt Reynolds being that old makes me feel pretty damn old. There are some people who never seem to age though, like Bruce Forsyth.

  10. Cheers Al. I reckon Burt looks in better nick than Clint. When I was a kid Clint and Burt were my role models. That is why I kept getting arrested for trying to jump cars over things with an ape in the passenger seat.

  11. He looks way better than Eastwood, but he's getting there.

  12. Google makes everyone a master detective!

  13. I'm pretty sure Burt Reynolds is a vampire, because he's looked 75 for about 75 years now.

  14. @Stephen: I think that comes extra.
    @Ruth: Which is more than Calvin Coolidge can say.
    @DWei: Compared to the pyramids. And Joan Rivers.
    @Matthew: All true. I just found out that Morgan Freeman died. Jeez-A-Lou, they're dropping like flies. All seriousness (I know, probably too late) very sad.
    @lynda: Good for you. When I went looking for pictures of Burt, sure enough the Cosmo picture was there. Boy oh boy, do I remember the brouhaha that caused. Related: on my first ship, the crew was all male. Being pigs, we displayed Penthouse pin-ups. The only restriction we had was that we had to take them down when we pulled into port. We compromised by making little bikinis for them which we taped to the posters.
    @JKIRF: And the rug. Good thing he had the sense to have the toup match the rest of his hair.
    @Elsie: He of the bushy mustache and slow drawl? I remember the first movie I saw him in..."Once An Eagle" I think it was called.
    @Tony: Me, too. Except I married that ape. Good thing she left me.
    @Bersercules: If I didn't admit it, people would think I was a genius. Well, let's not carried away.....
    @Pat: And much better than Michael Moore. But, then again, who doesn't?
    @Beer: That's why he's afraid of silver bullets. No, wait, wrong monster.
    @Mark: All kidding aside (once again, I know. Too late). A LOT of folks who I watched while growing up are keeling over, especially this year. Yikes.

  15. MORGAN FREEMAN IS ALIVE!!!! IT'S AN INTERNET HOAX. WHICH IS WEIRD BECAUSE I THOUGHT THEY COULDN'T PUT ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET IF IT WASN'T TRUE. Needless to say, Mr. Freeman is thrilled at the news.

  16. That's Burt Reynolds? I didn't recognize him. I thought it was Morgan Freeman.

  17. I thought he died a long time ago and they just kept wheeling him out (like Breakfast at Bernie's).

  18. Oh dear. He was such a hunk! But then so were a lot of men...we all age...But it beats the alternative! ( just ask Dick Clark!)

    1. I know....what a real shame about Dick Clark. Happens to us all, I know, but talk about a wake-up call for our own mortality, huh?

  19. Saw him recently in an episode of "Burn Notice". He did rather well. Still think he looks better than Mick Jagger or Keith Richards. Or even Roger Daltry.
