Burt Reynolds is recovering from quintuple bypass surgery, his rep revealed yesterday.
"Mr. Reynolds has been released from a hospital in Florida in which he had a planned bypass operation," spokesperson Erik Kritzer said in a statement. "He wants to thank everyone for their good wishes and states that he has a great motor with brand new pipes and he is feeling great. Doctors plan on a speedy recovery."
Kritzer added, "All reports that are implying he was rushed to a hospital are completely untrue, as he has had this operation scheduled for over a month."
Reynolds, 74, is now home, and is under 24-hour nursing care as he begins his recuperation.
Last year the actor admitted himself to rehab to overcome an addiction to pain medication. We wish him a speedy recovery.
