A heartthrob actor is retiring from Hollywood


The Sundance Kid is ready to ride off into the sunset. Robert Redford is retiring from acting.

Redford tells Entertainment Weekly that his next movie, The Old Man and the Gun, will be his last. He says, "Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and [I’ll] move towards retirement after this ’cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21."

Believe it or not, Redford's mantel has just two Oscars -- one for Best Director for Ordinary People and a Lifetime Achievement Award. He'll turn 82 this month.
