    Say what? The 82-year-old Burt Reynolds made viewers of NBC’s The Today Show do a triple-take Thursday when he shared that Sally Fields is not only the great love of his life, but that he fell in love with her when she was seven. He would have been 18 at the time. (And then the weirdness continued).

    The interview took a strange turn when Today co-host Hoda Kotb asked Reynolds who the love of his life was.

    • He replied: "You’re naughty, you really are. I’m dead in the water no matter what I say. Well, she was seven when I fell in love with her. She stayed seven for about 11 years. I would say Sally."
    • Field, now 71, and Reynolds dated for five years in the late 70's (when she was well into adulthood) after starring in four films together.
    • But the surreal exchange didn’t end there. During the interview, which also nominally about his new movie The Last Movie Star, Reynolds also hashed out his relationship with his father, saying his father never told him he was proud of him, and sharing a troubling anecdote from his youth.
    • "He arrested me once for fighting. He threw us all in this drunk tank and he came down and told the rest, ‘You can go home, your father came.’ Then he looked at me and he said, ‘Your father didn’t show up.’ It was tough, but I loved him beyond."
    • The interview took another strange turn at the end, when, out of the blue he told Kotb that he was "so proud of you for not having your lips larger."
    • "Okay, Burt," she responded, and let Twitter take it from there.
    • The Last Movie Star is out in theaters March 30.

    It seems like the premise of a zany girlfriends comedy, but the weird beauty treatment Cate Blanchett and pal Sandra Bullock indulge in is 100% fact.

    Dubbed a "penis facial," Blanchett divulged the little routine during an interview with Vogue Australia.

    • "Sandy Sandra Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial and it’s something – I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just cause it smells a bit like sperm – there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial."
    • People magazine jumped on the case and asked Louise what the deal was.
    • "It started last year when Sandra Bullock was filming in NYC and came to see me for a deep cleansing and long-lasting facial glow," she tells PeopleStyle. "I wanted to give her something that would transform her skin without the need to undergo lasers, so I loaded up her bespoke facial with something that would give her long-lasting results. Within weeks her make-up artist, Whitney, and cast mates wanted to know the cause of her amazing, glowing skin … and from that moment onwards the Hollywood EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) Facial was born!"
    • The facial involves a chemical peel, micro-needling, a mask and of course, the EGF serum. The EGF is reportedly derived from "from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin," according the facialist's website. And it doesn’t come cheap, at roughly $650 a pop.
    • Concerned about the babe? No worries. "The foreskin is collected during circumcision and the stem cells are then harvested and extracted through a centrifuge," the skin-care pro told New Beauty.

    The approval was deliver during a Mar. 14 Privy Council meeting at Buckingham Palace.

    • Observers are pointing out that when she gave Prince William and Kate Middleton the go-ahead, she referred to them as "Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, K.G. and Our Trusty and Well-beloved Catherine Elizabeth Middleton''.
    • The love for Meghan was clearly left out, but some are saying she will likely receive the same high praise when the formal document is written up.

    In a new interview, Today Show co-host Kathie Lee Gifford opened up about her relationship with accused sexual assaulters Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby.

    Gifford is not a "fair-weather" friend, she tells Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM Radio Andy Show.

    • "I don’t want to throw everybody on the same manure pile. Being a jerk is not the same as being a rapist. It just isn’t," she said. "I’ve been friends with Bill for a long, long time. Harvey Weinstein was a friend of mine for 30 years. I called him and left a message … I just want people to know I don’t judge them. I don’t like what they do, but God knows their hearts and there’s hope for them."
    • But she was quick to say that she herself was "sexually harassed, sexually abused and date raped" when she started out and doesn’t want anyone to misconstrue what she’s saying.
    • "I’m not saying that that kind of behavior is in any way acceptable. It isn’t, and it’s horrible, and as a woman who has experienced it, it’s awful," she said. "But can we at least look at each individual case and see it for what it is? And be merciful to people who are sorry for what they’ve done?"
    • Meanwhile, the Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. gave an update on the investigation into Weinstein, telling Page Six they are still putting the finishing touches on their case against him. "I’ve spoken with the police and I can tell you we are working very hard with them to complete the investigation," he said. "We’ll take the time it will take to get it done right."
    • Cosby is headed into a retrial next month in his sexual assault case. The first case ended in a mistrial.
    • Both Weinstein and Cosby denied allegations of nonconsensual sex after being accused of sexual misconduct, including rape, by several dozen women each.
