Robert Redford is not a jerk......just because you met him and he was VERY stand offish and cold does not make him a jerk. He is a VERY famous face, and is approached by every grocery clerk and gas station attendent in the world. Not ALL people in the world wish GOOD THINGS to famous people, some become stalkers or make threats. SOme people want to kill someone famous to get famous themselves. Folks see him in movies and THINK they know him, when in truth they do not.
Famous people cant BE SWEET to every TOm Dick and Harry on the planet. In able to HAVE some privacy in this life they act very standoffish.......THAT alone does not make them a jerk.
Robert Redford is VERY active in saving this planet....he CARES about the enviroment and the little guy......he CREATED 'SUNDANCE' so that small film makers can get the recognition they deserve.....he gives them money to make their dreams come true and supports them in the work they do. To me......a JERK of a human being would never do such things.
How would you behave if everywhere you went folks came up to you all exited about SEEING you?
~MAYBE~ for a while you would enjoy it, but I can tell you it GETS VERY OLD VERY FAST.............and he is standoffish BECAUSE he is a very private person attempting to keep some of himself to himself.
I highly DOUBT he is leaving IMO thats just a rumor......he has to many irons in the fire in this country and CARES about what happens here to many.....including wildlife and trees for heck sakes.
This RObert Redford bashing thread just goes to show HOW folks act when they THINK they know someone because they SAW them on the big screen, or in some town doing SOMETHING......so they make claims that 'This person sucks!' just becuase they didnt get to BOND with this famous person somehow.
