“Oh, Burt Reynolds!” Winfrey replied, including, “Oh, gosh! I have a Burt Reynolds story.”
She defined that when she was a lot youthful and interviewing Sally Field, (who costarred with Reynolds in “Smokey and the Bandit” and in addition dated him) she asked a nasty query.
“My big mistake: I asked her, ‘Does Burt sleep with his toupee on?'” Winfrey recalled. “I even say now, I cringe to even think that I asked that question. But I asked it because the producers are like, ‘You have to ask, you have to ask, you have to ask. That’s what everybody wants to know.'”
She continued, “And so I asked it, and she went cold on me. She shut down, and I could not get in again.”
Lowe mentioned he is aware of Field personally from their time on “Brothers & Sisters,” and mentioned, “She’s one of the most amazing actors I’ve ever known.”
“But when Sally goes cold, it’s like Khrushchev in the Cold War,” he mentioned. “She will bury you.”
But Winfrey harassed that she deserved what she obtained.
“It was like, ‘Whoa, Sally went cold on me on live TV,'” she mentioned. “I deserved it, I deserved it, I deserved it, ’cause that is such an inappropriate question.”
