  5. Kathleen Turner:

    Working with Burt Reynolds was terrible, the first day Burt came in he made me cry. He said something about not taking second place to a woman. His behavior was shocking.

I called my husband and said, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ He said, ‘You just do the job.’ It got to be very hostile because the crew began taking sides. But as for the performance, I was able to put the negativity aside. I’m not convinced Burt was.
