Burt Reynolds's Florida Home Faces Foreclosure
Not even Burt Reynolds and his legendary mustache are immune to Florida's foreclosure fiasco. According to a lawsuit filed by Merrill Lynch Credit Corp., Reynolds hasn't made a mortgage payment on his multimillion-dollar mansion in Hobe Sound since August 2010. Not even the Bandit himself can keep himself out of foreclosure.
"I am as surprised as everyone. I thought my career and my life could not be going better," Reynolds said in a statement released by his publicist to USA Today . "To all of the people who have had such faith in me and stuck by me through thick and thin, thank you. I know it is not the end of the world.
"There are a hell of a lot of other people worse off than I am, and my heart goes out to them. I will do like I've always done, keep my head up high and continue to move on down the road."
