Sunday gossip round-up: Burt Reynolds (and his mustache) are in the ICU

Get better soon, Burt!

Burt Reynolds has been hospitalized with the flu and is being
treated in a Florida intensive care unit, a rep for the 76-year-old
actor confirms to E! News. “He is doing better. They are taking care of
him and his mustache,” his rep jokes. “His fever is down and we believe
he should be taken out of ICU very soon.”
 
Liberty Ross has filed for divorce from director Rupert Sanders after 10 years of marriage and in the wake of his highly publicized affair with his “Snow White and the Huntsman” star, Kristen Stewart, according to Us Weekly. “This was a long time coming,” one source says, explaining that Sanders “did want to try to repair the relationship and didn’t want a divorce.” But according to another source, Ross found the betrayal impossible to get past. “They gave it a shot for the kids, [but] she was just so angry,” the source says. “She’s the kind of person who wouldn’t really ever get over it.” The couple has two children, daughter Skyla, 7, and son Tennyson, 5.
 
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, are reportedly doing just fine, despite his being in Australia shooting a new movie and tabloid reports speculating that a split between the “Twilight” co-stars is imminent. “All is good,” a source tells E! News, adding that Stewart is “not concerned” and “he isn’t either” about their temporary separation. “She still plans on going to visit him at some point while he is there filming, but definitely not now,” the source says.
 
The pressures of awards season are taking their toll on “Silver Linings Playbook” star Jennifer Lawrence, who is suffering from pneumonia, according to co-star Jacki Weaver. The Golden Globe winner also earned a trophy this weekend from Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Awards, but Weaver was there in her place at the L.A. ceremony. “I’m going to receive this on her behalf,” Weaver said. “Poor Jen is really sick. She really is sick. She has pneumonia.”
 

Seann William Scott
is back on the market, as his engagement to Victoria’s Secret model Lindsay Frimodt is officially off, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. “They remain friends. It was a very amicable split,” his rep says. The “American Pie” star had first announced the engagement last March while promoting the reunion sequel “American Reunion,” explaining that the pair had met on a beach vacation a year ago. “I don’t how I got a girl like my fiancee,” Scott told the magazine at the time. “She hadn’t seen ‘American Pie.’ Thank god. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t be engaged.”
