Veteran actor Burt Reynolds is "feeling better" following his hospitalization with influenza, according to his representative.

The Boogie Nights star, who had been ill for several days, was taken to a medical center in Florida after struggling with worsening systems, and on Friday he was treated in the intensive care unit for dehydration.

Doctors expect the 76 year old to make a full recovery, and now his spokesperson has updated fans about Reynolds' condition.

Erik Kritzer reveals the star is expected to leave the hospital on Monday, and adds, "He is feeling better."
