As he prepares for the November release of his second memoir, But Enough About Me, Burt Reynolds is beginning to spill a few details about what might be included in his anticipated book.
The veteran actor, 79, made his first ever appearance at Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia, and was the centre of attention as fans grilled him about his enduring career.
Wearing rose-tinted glasses and walking with a cane as he arrived at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the silver-haired screen star cut a frail figure while settling in for a Q&A session.
Reynolds sparked laughter among the crowd as he mocked rumours of a rivalry with late actor Marlon Brando, and also ignited applause as he declared Deliverance the favourite of his movies.
"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,' he told the website.
Reynolds' upcoming memoir - which he is still working on - is sure to be of interest to fans of his earlier work, as the star plans to tell all about those he's worked with.
"I got along great with 98 per cent of them, and a few of them I didn't like at all," he admitted.
"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."
The movie star underwent quintuple heart bypass in 2010, a year after he entered rehab for an addiction to painkillers.
In 2013, he spent some time in intensive care after being hospitalised with influenza.
Reynolds denied that he is "broke" after fetching $2.5 million at an auction for a collection of his movie memorabilia in December.
The quick-witted star quipped: "Quite frankly, I am sick of so many pictures of myself in my own home."
