Captain, please put the Cosmo down, ok? :)
Yeah his career grew from TV bit parts to his own series and then into slew of hit movies. And he did pretty well with the ladies too! And so far no surprises like Rock Hudson.
Men should definitely not get facelifts, Wrinkles on a man are sexy. It is the nature of the surgery not the quality of the job that makes them look too feminine and doll-like — especially Burt Reynolds who has had wrinkles ever since he was the biggest thing in Hollywood in the ‘80’s...Strong-featured was what gave him that fantastic aura of musky masculinity with a subtle, polished finish, sort of like a lawyer cowboy.
Note that the bio somehow avoided his career’s really BIG leap with the Cosmo centerfold.
