Burt Reynolds is broke and auctioning off over 600 of his most prized possessions, including a Golden Globes trophy.
Due to poor business decisions, the fire sale will put a slew of the movie star’s personal items under the gavel, including artwork, signed photographs and even the red jacket Reynolds, now 78, donned in Smokey and the Bandit II.
In a foreword in the catalogue, the Deliverance star says: “I’ve collected so many things that I truly adore but at this stage in my life I find it very difficult to manage them all.
