Have you ever wondered what it’s like being a movie star?

This weekend, you can ask.

Actor Burt Reynolds, a longtime Palm Beach County resident, will be available for a question-and-answer session on Saturday evening, followed by a showing of the 1978 classic Hooper at Rosarian Academy’s Picotte Fine Arts Center.

“I never know what questions will be asked,” Reynolds said in a news release announcing the event. “Sometimes I think my fans know more about my life than I do. Anticipation keeps me on my toes.”

Donna Carbone, managing director of the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre in Jupiter, said proceeds from the event will be split between the institute’s building fund and Rosarian Academy.

Reynolds, 80, teaches a class on Friday evenings at the institute.

“He is a lover of education,” Carbone said.

She added that Reynolds is a close friend of Robert Sherman, director of the academy’s theater program.

“For many years, I’ve wanted to introduce Burt Reynolds to our students,” Sherman said in the release. “Much of what I know as a teacher and a professional actor I learned from him.”

Carbone said the relationship between Reynolds and Sherman is an example of how the institute and Rosarian Academy work hand-in-hand to bolster the theatre community.

“We really are a family,” Carbone said. “It’s a marvelous feeling of belonging.”
