Clap de fin for Robert Redford, actor
A month and a half before the release of his upcoming film "The Old Man and The Gun", Robert Redford announced that he was retiring as an actor.
Not content to be one of the most respected actors of his generation, Robert Redford knows how to keep his promises, even when they are not pleasant to hear for his many fans. As he had hinted in November 2016 by stating that he would retire after the two films for which he had committed - Our Souls Night , with Jane Fonda aired last year on Netflix and The Old Man And The Gun with Sissy Spacek and Casey Affleck coming out at the end of September on American screens - the American actor, who will be celebrating his 82nd birthday on August 18, confirmed his words in an exclusive interview published on Tuesday.
A last role that looks like him
" Never say never, but I came to the conclusion that playing comedy is over for me ," said the native of Santa Monica (California) who had began her acting career on Broadway in 1959 and then pursued her on television and film in 1960. In, he played the role of a 70-year-old convict escaped from prison , who embarks on a series of robberies, a story from the true story of Forrest Tucker, a friendly robber like Robert Redford has interpreted a few during his career, we obviously think of (1969) ) and Scam (1973), alongside Paul Newman, who died in 2008.
" I will take the road to retirement after that because I have been doing this since I was 21 years old ", a- he added in that same interview to Entertainment Weekly. But his press officer was quick to add that the hero of(1985) - one of his most acclaimed films, alongside Meryl Streep - did not necessarily retire as director, an art in which he also distinguished himself with nine films behind the camera of which some planetary successes like (1980), (1992) or (1998).
" He mentioned it [his retirement; from the very beginning of the shoot, " director The Old Man and The Gun , David Lowery, told Esquire magazine in an interview. " I think the movie is about him as much as this character ," he continued. " This is someone who is in the twilight of his life and wants to do something he loves. There is an inevitable side to the character that can not be separated from Mr. Redford himself, and a bitter sweet side ". Highly appreciated by the public and in his profession, Robert Redford has never been rewarded with an Oscar as an actor, except for an Oscar of honor awarded in 2002. The Academy had nevertheless awarded him statuette from his first film staged for People Like the Others in 1980.
Coming from a relatively modest family, Robert Redford has sought, all his life, to trace his path, keeping, as much as possible for a movie star, its distances with Hollywood. When he was in his forties, he was already thinking of not appearing in front of the camera, preferring to concentrate on directing. " I think it's time to move on to ," he said in a 1980 interview with Britain's BBC Channel 1. " Very few people I know have been able to hang on to the good moment and move on to something else . Although reminiscent of Hollywood glitz, the unforgettable(1974) has had a significant influence on American cinema through the Sundance (Utah) film festival he created in 1985 and which has served as a launching pad for a multitude of independent projects (films, documentaries, short films) over the last thirty years.
