Robert Redford's quotes

  • [on his appearance in Havana (1990)] All everyone talked about was aging. It took me by surprise because I have not thought of myself that way. I assumed I would age naturally, as time went on.
  • As a director, I wouldn't like me as an actor. As an actor, I wouldn't like me as a director.
  • I am perhaps the best-looking grandfather around, apart from Marlon Brando, of course!
  • Some people have analysis. I have Utah.
  • [on refusing the role of Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967), the role that made Dustin Hoffman a star seven years before Redford obtained super-star status himself] I never did look like a 21-year-old just out of college who'd never been laid.
  • by Robert Osborne, "Academy Awards 1974 Oscar Annual"] I used to feel competitive about a career, but now the only things I'm really passionate about are my family, the environment and Indians.
  • You should prepare when you go to a public event to be public. That's when I will sign autographs. But not when you're going about your normal business.
  • [on his relationship with Paul Newman] When we made the movies nobody used the word "chemistry". Nobody used the word "bonding". It was just: "Get up there and do your job!"
  • [on his friendship with Paul Newman] There are certain friendships that are sometimes too good and too strong to talk about.
  • I've bought hundreds of acres around my home. That's why I moved here from the coast. There's plenty of room to roam and be alone with nature. That's living. The city life is merely existing.
  • I often feel I'll just opt out of this rat race and buy another hunk of Utah.
  • A lot of what acting is, is paying attention.
  • All my life I've been dogged by guilt because I feel there is this difference between the way I look and the way I feel inside.
  • [during his opening-night address at the Sundance Film Festival, claiming U.S. politicians exploited public support of invasions] We put all our concerns on hold to let the leaders lead. I think we're owed a big, massive apology.
  • [1972 comment on Paul Newman] Paul is the most generous man with whom I've ever worked. We had a fantastic rapport shooting [Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)]. It was one of the happiest experiences of my life.
  • [on working with Dustin Hoffman on All the President's Men (1976)] One of the joys of the movie was working with Dustin; he has one of the most wonderful acting minds I've ever worked with.
  • They throw that word "star" at you loosely, and they take it away equally loosely. You take the responsibility for their crappy movie, that's what that means.
  • [on the death of longtime friend Paul Newman] I have lost a real friend. My life--and this country--is better for his being in it.
  • Storytellers broaden our minds: engage, provoke, inspire, and ultimately, connect us.
  • [on filming All Is Lost (2013)] It was a bold and pure cinematic experience. It was stripped to the bone and I found that very appealing.. Being wet all day was the hardest thing. You get depressed being wet all the time.
