Five months after Burt Reynolds exclusively revealed to Closer Weekly that he still loves his ex-girlfriend Sally Field, the actress is opening up about their relationship today — and has revealed they "don't really talk."
"We don't really talk to each other, no," the 69-year-old actress told People in a new interview. When subsequently asked about her former flame's recent (and frequent) declarations that she is "the one that got away," Sally quipped, "Well, yeah."
