Burt Reynolds released from hospital

JUPITER, FL Erik Kritzer said in a statement Wednesday that Reynolds had been scheduled for the operation for over a month.

Kritzer said Reynolds went into the hospital on Monday and was discharged Tuesday.

Kritzer says the star of "Smokey and the Bandit," "Deliverance" and "Boogie Nights" told him that he has "a great motor with brand new pipes" and is "feeling great."

Last year, Reynolds spent time in a Florida rehab center after treatment for painkiller abuse following back surgery.

Reynolds is 74.
