Burt Reynolds on racism in Hollywood

Hollywood actor Burt Reynolds has told BBC HARDtalk about the racism he found in Hollywood against Native Americans and how he has demanded scripts be changed to remove offensive language.

Mr Reynolds, whose father was half Cherokee, said: "I was the first one to speak up to the director and the producer and say - you have to change these things because it's not right the way we're talking about them."

Asked about racism in Hollywood he said: "I get quite angry about it".
