Robert Redford among Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People’
Robert Redford has been named as one of 2014's "100 Most Influential People" in the new issue of Time magazine.
Redford, writes movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, "created a utopia in the middle of conservative Utah for successful filmmakers to interact with young filmmakers, and thus Sundance — the laboratory and festival — was born."
Weinstein also praises Redford's acting ability, his long-running battle of practical jokes with his late friend Paul Newman, and the fact that when Redford and Weinstein go to lunch, "Bob always gets away without paying the bill."
