Burt Reynolds' manager says the actor has been released from a Florida hospital after a planned heart bypass operation.

Erik Kritzer said in a statement Wednesday that Reynolds had been scheduled for the operation for over a month. He went into the hospital Monday and was released on 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 rehabilitation center after treatment for painkiller abuse following back surgery.

Reynolds is 74.
