Robert Redford

Birthday: Aug 18, 1936
Birthplace: Santa Monica, California, USA
Has Scottish-Irish ancestry. Life-long love of climbing started as a teen when he climbed buildings in the Los Angeles area. Played baseball in high school with future Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale. Studied art in Europe before moving to New York and took an acting class on a suggestion it could lead to a job as an art director. Appeared in numerous TV series in the early 1960s, including Maverick, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone. Made big-screen debut in 1962 in War Hunt with actor Sydney Pollack who later directed him in seven movies, including The Way We Were, Three Days of the Condor and Out of Africa. Scored first major stage and screen hit with Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park with Jane Fonda, before becoming a household name with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in 1969. Starred in The Sting in 1973 which was nominated for ten Oscars, winning seven, and was chosen for preservation in the 'National Film Registry'. Founded the nonprofit Sundance Institute in 1980, a venture that showcases independent film projects and spawned the Sundance Film Festival and the Sundance Channel. Won an Oscar for 1980 directorial debut Ordinary People. Was a Kennedy Center Honors recipient in 2005. In 2008, received the Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize for his "pivotal" role in the arts. In 2010, received France's Knight of the Legion of Honour award. Released his eighth film as director in 2011 with the historical drama The Conspirator. The film deals with the controversial execution of a woman said to be involved in the slaying of Abraham Lincoln. Redford took it on, he told USA Today, because "I'm attracted to the little-known story beneath the story you think you know." Portrayed journalist Dan Rather in Truth, a 2015 film that examines the controversial coverage by 60 Minutes of ex-President George Bush's military service. Was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2016. Announced in 2018 that his role in the upcoming crime comedy, The Old Man & The Gun would be among his last.
