Burt Reynolds denies being broke

London: Veteran actor Burt Reynolds has dismissed reports suggesting he is selling his memorabilia because he is broke.

The 'Deliverance' star is parting ways with outfits, jewellery, movie props and art he has picked up over the years, but he insists the upcoming Julien's Auctions sale in Las Vegas on this December 14 is not being staged to help him with his finances, reported Contactmusic.

"I am simply selling some of my memorabilia that I have enjoyed for so many years but do not have use nor room for them anymore. Quite frankly, I am sick of so many pictures of myself in my own home," he said.

The items up for sale include a canoe used in 1972 film Deliverance, numerous pairs of Western boots from Reynolds' personal collection, his large collection of belt buckles and an 18-karat gold antique inscribed pocket watch given to the actor by his co-star and friend Sally Field.
