For Dax Shepard of TV's Parenthood, life and love boil down to a matter of putting things into perspective.

Take his fiancée of more than two years, for instance. "If Brad Pitt gets Kristen Bell, it's like, 'Well, of course he did,' " says Shepard, 37.

"With me, it should be, 'Oh good, a normal-looking guy got her. Maybe I'll get me a Kristen Bell.' But guys hate my guts for always dating women I have no right to be with."

To put it bluntly: "I was a heart attack waiting to happen," Burt Reynolds told PEOPLE Friday night.

"My doctor said I needed to undergo bypass surgery immediately," Reynolds, who lives in south Florida, explained, admitting that he had no idea that his arteries were closed when he went to his doctor for a physical. "I went home and shaved then had the operation the next day."

Rehabbing Burt Reynolds Knew He Needed Help

Originally posted 09/17/2009 02:00PM

Burt Reynolds may be known for his macho roles, but the veteran leading man, who is rehabilitating from an addiction to prescription drugs, says he sought help because he couldn't do it by himself.

"I felt that in spite of the fact I am supposedly a big tough guy, I couldn't beat prescription drugs on my own," Reynolds, 73, told PEOPLE Thursday. "I've worked hard to get off of them and really hope other people will realize they need to seek professional help, rather than ignoring the problem or trying to get off of the prescriptions on their own.


"This has been a challenging time for me personally, and I really appreciate the outpouring of love and support from my fans, friends and family," he said. "I am looking forward to getting back to teaching and working."
