Robert Redford Interview – Pete’s Dragon – “I’m in a period of my life where I like to act”

PREVIEW

Robert Redford turns 80 on August 18. But the two-time Academy Awards winner (one for directing “Ordinary People” and a Lifetime Achievement Award) feels like he’s just hitting his stride as an actor.

“I’m in a period of my life where I like to act,” he explains during a recent interview, dressed casually in a black pullover and jeans and a light jacket, his blondish-grey hair tousled like he just wandered in from the ranch.

THE INTERVIEW

Q: Do you have plans to direct again? Do you have anything in the works?

Redford: Two things in the works that would be next spring. I’m in a period of my life where I like to act.
