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.
