Robert Redford - Robert Redford Celebrating 75th Birthday

Robert Redford, the legendary American actor, is celebrating his 75th birthday today (18th August 2011). Redford has had a long and distinguished career in Hollywood, starring in classics such as 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' and 'All the President's Men', reports MSNbc.com
Despite becoming one of the biggest names in the movie world, Redford has often used his fame to promote environmental causes and independent filmmaking. He made his directorial debut in 1980, getting behind the camera for 'Ordinary People' - a movie that immediately won the Oscar for Best Film. During a recent interview with Aol about his film 'The Conspirator', Redford discussed the upcoming Presidential election and principally Sarah Palin, saying, "The fear card is a very big powerful card and when you have people afraid of change; they'll do anything to prevent it. They're doing it because they're limited, frightened of people who are not as limited. I think Sarah Palin, part of her strength is how limited she is".
Robert Redford is about to begin shooting 'The Company You Keep' - his first movie for five years. The thriller, which Redford also directs, follows a former Weather Underground activist who goes on the run from a journalist who discovers his identity. The movie also stars Shia Labeouf and SUSAN SARANDON.
