ROBERT REDFORD CONFIRMS RETIREMENT FROM ACTING, BUT HE MAY CARRY ON DIRECTING

Los Angeles (USA) / Robert Redford confirmed retirement from performance, as he announced two years ago, but left the door open to continue directing films, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“Never say never, but I’ve concluded that this is the end for me in terms of acting and that I’m going to retire after this (the movie ‘The Old Man & the Gun’) because I’ve been doing this since I was 21 “declared the artist.

Legend of Hollywood before and behind the scenes, Redford assured in November 2016 that he would retire from the performance after participating in two more films: “Nosotros en la noche”, which premiered in 2017 on Netflix, and “The Old Man & the Gun”, which will hit cinemas in the United States next September 28th.

“I thought: ‘Well, that’s enough, and why not go with something that is very optimistic and positive?'” Redford said in reference to the tone of the film “The Old Man & the Gun” by director David Lowery (“Peter and the Dragon”, 2016) and in whose cast are also Sissy Spacek and Casey Affleck.

However, Redford, who turns 82 on August 18, left the door open to continue directing feature films.

“We’ll see about that” said Redford, whose latest film as a director is “Pacto de silencio” (2012).

Redford achieved fame as an actor thanks to films like “Dos hombres y un destino” (1969), “El golpe” (1973), both with Paul Newman, or “Tal como éramos” (1973), with Barbra Streisand, who they also made him one of Hollywood’s most desirable gallants.

Later it participated in other remembered films like “Todos los hombres del presidente” (1976), next to Dustin Hoffman, or “Memorias de África” (1985), with Meryl Streep.

He jumped into the direction with “Gente corriente” (1980) and garnered more applause as a director for his work in the films “Quiz Show (El dilema)” (1994), “El hombre que susurraba a los caballos” (1998) or “Leones por corderos” (2007).

Promoter of independent cinema through the Sundance Institute, Redford won the Oscar for best director for “Gente corriente” and also received an honorary statuette from the Hollywood Academy in 2002. (August 7, 2018, EFE/PracticaEspañol)
