Robert Redford Says Women Could Fix US Govt., and Other Reasons We Love Him
Actor and activist Robert Redford is always willing to share his opinions about the US government, especially in view of the recent shutdown shenanigans.
Here are more reasons we think Robert is the bomb:
He Does His Own Stunts… at Age 77
Promoting his new film "All Is Lost," in which he plays a lone sailor struggling to stay alive after his boat is crippled by a collision with a container ship, Redford told “Extra’s” AJ Calloway that despite concerns, he was determined to do all the stunts himself. “There was no stopping me or the director. J.C. Chandor was very concerned I be protected, but he also pushed me to do these crazy things.”
Robert told Calloway “We were in these big tanks, 20 feet of water big wind machines, wave machines, rain machines. Everything was going at once, about to capsize, waves 7 feet and I couldn’t see very well. There was a guy hitting me with a firehouse with water and kept hitting me in the same spot. I ended up with ear infection and once it cleared up, I lost hearing. I lost part of the hearing in my left ear, maybe 40, 50 percent.”
Redford Isn’t Afraid of a Little Bromance
He and Calloway really hit it off!
"All Is Lost” sets sail in theaters October 18.
