Burt Reynolds

Hospitalized

Intensive Care Unit After Catching the Flu

EXCLUSIVE

0124-burt-reynolds-gettyBurt Reynolds is being treated in the intensive care unit at a Florida hospital ... after coming down with a nasty case of the flu ... TMZ has learned.

According to Burt's rep ... Burt, like everyone else in the country, caught that nasty flu bug that's been going around ... and was coping with the symptoms for several days.

But the symptoms got worse, and Burt was admitted to the hospital. The rep tells us Burt was moved to the ICU earlier today after doctors determined he was "severely dehydrated."

The good news -- we're told doctors are optimistic that he will make a full recovery.

We're told Reynolds' mustache is also doing OK.

Two years ago I saw Burt at a personal appearance in the Chicago suburbs and he was well made up but looked frail. All those years of doing his own stunts and surviving in the jungles of Hollywood have taken their toll on Burt. I hope he gets well soon!

I hope he gets better soon. He is a 70's icon and from what I've seen he's a nice guy. Saying a prayer for him.

My girlfriend back in the day had his nude "Playgirl" centerfold picture (or whatever that was) as a framed poster in her bathroom. Looking at that thing while I was struggling to take a leak (she was very attractive and almost constantly had a certain effect on a body part that is needed to relieve oneself as a man) was a very strange experience. Peeing with an aching semi-boner while a naked Burt Reynolds is looking at you approvingly with a "come-hither face"... I don't know how I did it. Now add his current "face" to the mix... The horror, the horror!!!
