Los Angeles - American actor Burt Reynolds is battling the
flu in the intensive care unit of a Florida hospital, CNN reported on Friday.
The Smokey and the Bandit actor arrived at the
unnamed hospital with dehydration and was later transferred to intensive care,
Reynolds' manager, Erik Kritzer, told CNN.
"He is doing better at this time," Kritzer was
quoted as saying on Friday afternoon. "We expect, as soon as he gets more
fluids, he will be back in a regular room."
Reynolds, 76, is famous for roles in 1970s movies including Deliverance and The Longest Yard. More recently, he won
a Golden Globe award for his role as a porn king in 1997 film Boogie
