Burt Reynolds' successes in film are known to all, but the achievement he had called his greatest had nothing to do with his acting career. According to The Life & Times of Hollywood, Reynolds opened up during an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly about how he believed his greatest achievement in life was his son, Quinton Anderson.
"He is my greatest achievement. He's a wonderful young man and is now working as a camera assistant in Hollywood. He never asked for any help with his career, he did it all himself, and I'm so proud of him. I love him very much."
Who is Quinton Anderson?
According to Heavy, the public does not know very much about Burt's son because he lived an exceptionally private life. Burt – and his entire family – made a huge effort to shield Quinton from the media and tabloids. Even pictures of the young Reynolds are pretty sparse.
Quinton lived in Florida during the early years of his childhood before moving to California with his mother, Loni Anderson, following her divorce from Burt. Today, Quinton lives in California.
