Legendary actor Burt Reynolds cut a frail figure yesterday as he attended his very first comic con in Philadelphia.
The 79-year-old was at Wizard World Comic Con to participate in a Q&A at the Pennsylvania Convention Center about his upcoming book, But Enough About Me.
Walking with the aid of a cane, Burt wore a black suit, rose-tinted glasses and sported his signature mustache. Though he was in good spirits, fans couldn't help but notice how gaunt he looked as he ambled along with the help of a cane.
The veteran actor was asked about his long and illustrious movie career as well as revealing some details about what is in his much-anticipated second memoir.
The 'Boogie Nights' star spoke with Philly.com prior to his appearance about the event and said, "I always enjoy talking to fans and I'm usually very pleased with their curiosity about my career, what I'm doing, what I'm not doing, and why I'm not doing more.
"When you write a book like this, you have to tell the whole thing, and there are days when everything isn't wonderful and there were people who I thought were asses.
"I'm having a lot of fun, but it's beginning to look a little bit like the dictionary. I started acting in a TV series in 1959 and I've been working ever since, so there's an awful lot to reminisce about," Burt told Philly.com.
In 2009, the actor entered rehab for addiction to painkillers and underwent a quintuple heart bypass a year later and was admitted into intensive care in 2013 with influenza.
'But Enough About Me' hits bookshelves in November.
