“I still love [Sally] very much,” Burt, 79, tells Closer about the woman he dated for five torrid years and almost married before splitting up in 1982. “I wish I could stay in touch with [her], but I live in Florida.”

Florida is also high on the list of things Burt still loves. “I love the heat. I love the people. And there’s no talk of show business there,” he tells Closer. “I’ll stay there as long as they let me.”
