Burt Reynolds Reveals He was Born in Lansing
Burt Reynolds is a Michigan man!
The actor has revealed in his new book, But Enough About Me, that he was born in Lansing, Mich. on Feb. 11, 1936.
There's been debate online among Reynold's fans about the actor's birthplace. According to the Detroit Free Press, until this week, Reynold's Wikipedia page stated his birthplace as Waycross, Ga. As of Wednesday it reads that Reynolds was born in Michigan's capital.
Why were Reynold's northern roots questioned?
"If there's any confusion about my birthplace, it's my fault," Reynolds explains. "I was born in Lansing, Michigan. We moved to Florida when I was five. I grew up a Southern boy who didn't want to be a Yankee."
About that Georgia birthplace story-- "Why Waycross, Georgia?" Reynolds wrote in the book. "I liked the sound of it."
Reynold's memoir came out Tuesday and can be purchased for $27.99.
