Country music icon Dolly Parton said she could not wait to jump into bed with silver screen legend Burt Reynolds, but it was all in the name of acting, London’s the Mirror reported Monday.

Parton, 72, who wrote the music for the stage version of 9 to 5: The Musical, will kick off in London’s Savoy Theatre in January. She opened up in the interview about Reynolds, her co-star in the 1982 hit Hollywood movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the Mirror noted.

She remained friends with the Academy Award-nominated actor until his death September 6 at age 82.

Despite the rumors at the time she had an affair with the Hollywood heartthrob, Parton said they were just good friends, but didn’t deny the on-screen chemistry.

“I couldn’t wait to jump into bed with Burt Reynolds,” Parton told the Mirror with a laugh. “In the movie, not in real life.”

Parton said part of that on-screen chemistry came from that fact that they were more “brother and sister” than lovers.

“Burt and I were a good ol’ boy and girl, and I was very sad when he passed away – we were really very much alike,” Parton told the publication. “But he had not been in good health for a long time and so I hope he’s resting in peace.

“I’m sure he is. The last years of his life he had some really hard times. We were kind of like brother and sister,” she continued.
