I can’t last forever: Robert Redford on retirement (Photo- Twitter/@PageSix)
Hollywood veteran Robert Redford, who recently announced retirement from acting, appears to have locked his decision as he says he cannot hang around “forever”.
Last month, the 81-year-old actor said “The Old Man & The Gun” would be his last film.
“I can’t last forever,” Redford told Variety while promoting the film at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday.
He plans to relax and spend some time going horse-riding when he hangs his boots as an actor.
“I’ll start with sleeping and then I’ll get on a horse,” he told EW.
The Oscar-winner has had an illustrious and varied career as an actor, producer and director, with films such as “The Sting”, “Barefoot in the Park”, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, “The Way We Were”, “All the President’s Men” and “All Is Lost”.
Redford won the best director Oscar for his 1980 film “Ordinary People”. He has directed eight other films besides founding the Sundance Institute and the Sundance Film Festival.
