Actor Burt Reynolds released from hospital after flu bout
(Reuters) - American actor Burt Reynolds has left a Florida hospital after a battle with the flu, a representative for the "Smokey and the Bandit" star said on Tuesday.
"Burt has been released from the hospital," said Reynolds' manager, Erik Kritzer.
Reynolds, 76, was admitted to an unidentified hospital last week with dehydration and was later placed in intensive care.
Reynolds is best known for his roles in 1970s films such as "Deliverance" and "The Longest Yard."
He won a Golden Globe award and scored an Oscar nomination for his role as a porn king in the 1997 film "Boogie Nights."
Reynolds underwent heart bypass surgery in 2010.
