Sally Fields has low key been America’s sweetheart for decades, but she says that in the 1970s she wasn’t exactly feeling the love from people even though she garnered critical acclaim for her role in Sybil. While speaking with Oprah, Fields said that she took the role in Smokey and the Bandit because she thought it would help people realize her full "potential":

Burt Reynolds called me up personally. I pretended it wasn't shocking and scary that he would call me. He said he had this movie and the script wasn't very good but that he trusted me and would make it work. Actually, there was no script; in the end, we made up half the movie. The challenge for me was that people saw Sybil and said, ‘Boy, she can act—but man, is she ugly!’ So I thought if I did a movie with Burt and he thought I was cute, then somebody else might think I was cute and I could continue acting.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
