Poor Robert Redford!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMickey Rourke

robert redford says he never gets asked to be in movies

Come on, Hollywood! Show Robert Redford a little more respect! He is a knight, after all…

While at Sundance, Redford spoke up about how he never gets asked to be in movies anymore.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I ask the question — I say, 'Hey I'd like to be [in that movie]' and they say, 'Would you? You're kidding.' And I say 'No.'"

"Something is happening over the years that makes a lot of people think that I don't do this anymore, when the truth is, it's what I enjoy most."

At least it seems like he's finding SOME work. Here are a couple of roles he's got on the horizon:

- A major role in a Jackie Robinson bio-pic
- A starring role in an adaptation of Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods

We're totally on board for a comeback of SIR Robert Redford!

If Mickey Rourke can do it…

Would U like to see Robert Redford become a big-screen presence once again?

    Hey, he and Barbra can do a sequel to "The Way We Were" ! they can call it "Oy Vey, We're Yore!"

    I hate it that he had to age…..hell, I hate it that I have to. Anyway, I loved the young blonde Robert Redford from the "Way We Were" days. Yum.

  3. 3

    I miss movies with him.

  4. 4

    if he truly looks like that picket he can star in horror movies with no makeup. The hair is dyed a very unattractive color. He was never much of an actor and he hasn't aged well so no movies for him! Lucky for Butch Cassidy/Paul Neuman he stayed attractive til the end

    I'm all for a Robert Redford comeback. I just watched Barefoot in the Park and my god he's gorgeous in it.

    > If Mickey Rourke can do it…

    Well, getting an appointment with Mickey's plastic surgeon would be a good starting point.

    Just kidding, just kidding. Robert: don't even think about it!!!

    Respect? Um, yes, he does. Seems, though, you called him "Rob" last week. That's not something you're entitled to do, Mario. Second, comparing Robert Redford to Mickey Rourke is like comparing Motzart to William Hung. Mr. Redford doesn't need "a comeback". He is an icon. An international icon. Something you obviously missed the memo when it came to paying attention in Drama class. So, the Rourke comment was also disrespectful and showed your total lack of class.

    He never left. He's been consistant over a 50 year period. That's why he's a damn living legend. Mickey Rourke. Pffft..Your SUCH an idiot, Perez. Seriously.

    Actually, the "I still act" bullshit above his head is totally offensive. That's fucking Robert Redford. Jesus Christ. Al Pacino and Robert Deniro salute that man. You really are an ignorant screwball, aren't you Mario? We're you an immigrant? if so, deport yourself. You're a major contributor to poisoning the minds of our youth.

    Love him! he needs to apply himself!

  12. 12

    Adore him!! Always will!!! I thought he'd gotten into directing or something and wasn't interested in acting in front of the screen but I'll gladly watch him ANYTIME!!

  13. 13

    Maybe people are mistaking him for Elton John

    So it's not only aging women who have problems getting movie roles. For Robert Redford, this is totally unjustified, he is a good actor and very handsome. The same goes for actresses 55 and older, they should not be forgotten, this is cruel and unfair.

  15. 15

    I wish he'd let his hair go gray and cut it shorter. The dye job looks ridiculous.

  16. 16

    I love this man, I would watch him in anything. He stood in front of me a few years ago at an event in Atlanta and I nearly jumped a barricade to touch him!!

    He doesn't get work because he probably won't change that wig for a role. Everytime I see him in a movie he has that god awful wig on - it's uncomfortable to watch. I bet he's very picky about roles too because he seems to do either romantic or action roles with much younger stars. How did he ever get that Sundance thing going? He's never even been considered that good of an actor.

    He was a most beautiful man when he was young, exisite!

  19. 19

    He is a "Chevalier" in the French Legion of Honor, the title "Sir" is given to English Knights, not French
