According to an EW exclusive, the mighty Robert Redford is retiring from acting following The Oldman & The Gun. But didn’t we already know this? We knew it in 2016 and I wrote about it in April 2018. News or not, here’s a quote from Redford discussing his cinematic swansong in David Lowery’s film:
“Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and [I’ll] move towards retirement after this ’cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21. I thought, Well, that’s enough. And why not go out with something that’s very upbeat and positive?”
We’ll never see the like of Redford again.
