Burt Reynolds Hospitalized: Actor Enters ICU After Being 'Severely Dehydrated'

Burt Reynolds has entered the intensive care unit of a Florida hospital, where he is being treated for the flu, TMZ reports.

Reynolds caught his own dose of the particularly harsh flu that's going around right now and was suffering from symptoms for several days. When those symptoms worsened, Reynolds reportedly entered the hospital. Reynold's rep says he was moved to the ICU after doctors said he was "severely dehydrated."

The "Smokey and the Bandit" actor is expected to make a full recovery.
