(CNN) Actor Burt Reynolds is in intensive care in a Florida hospital, where he went for treatment of flu symptoms, one of his representatives said Friday.

Reynolds was dehydrated when he went to the hospital, and was eventually transferred to its intensive care unit, his representative Erik Kritzer told CNN.

Kritzer declined to divulge what hospital the actor was in, saying, “He would like that (kept) private.”

“He is doing better at this time,” Kritzer said late Friday afternoon of the 76-year-old actor. “We expect, as soon as he gets more fluids, he will be back in a regular room.”
