Robert Redford is now a knight!

French President Nicolas Sarkozy inducted actor/director Robert Redford into France’s elite Legion of Honor. During the ceremony Sarkozy commended Redford for his decades of film and his work to protect the environment.

Sarkozy told Redford that he is an “incarnation of the United States and all that that country represents." He believes people will continue to watch and enjoy his films forever.

Redford was honored and thanked the French people saying, "I will continue with my commitment to make cinema that opens people's spirits and goes beyond borders, and this prize will help me do that."

The Legion of Honor was created by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802, with some of the other members being Clint Eastwood and Canadian director David Cronenberg.

This is an exciting event for Robert! Congrats!!!

    Ah stupid Perez… He's not a knight and he is not called «Sir». This is not England, this if France, which is a republic. Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur is not knighthood. Please pick up some books and open them, for God's sake!

    He could at least match the top of his toupe with whatever is going on with the sides of his hiar. My god RR, we know you're old - just accept it already.

    Love him! My imagination…or is he starting to look like Warren Beaty?

    He's always been a class act. Should get a face lift, he'd look 40 again.

    This is just another one of your stupid posts proving you have no education. He can only be knighted by the Queen of England. Not a President of a country. Like Curiousred said read some books. Better yet learn your history……..

    If an American deserved to be decorated with La Légion d'honneur, yes it should be Robert Redford. But I believe President Sarkozy was wrong by saying Mr. Redford is an incarnation of the US and all that the country represents. Far from it. What can there be in common between Mr. Redford and the rednecks from Middle America, or the God-fearing fanatics, or the gay-bashers, the republicans, etc. Mr. Redford is a proud liberal and I shall forever admire him for that. Well deserved honour my precious RR. Love his glasses !

    Why, it had been a while since I had agreed with Sarko! …Wait, actually it may be the FIRST time I approve of something he does…

    Robert Redford was indeed a good choice for the Legion d'honneur.

    But Perez, he's not a knight. We're in a republic.
