IMO plastic surgery makes you look older, Pamela Anderson is a perfect example. I have always adored Robert Redford!

Oh yes he was great looking, in my opinion! So was Bruce Jenner. OMG - the last picture of Bruce Jenner! Remember when guys wore short shorts like that?

I know someone who checked him into a hotel in Austin recently. She said when he walked up to the counter he said, "Hi. My name is Bob Redford. I have a reservation." She said she felt like shrieking, "AS IF I didn't know! Everyone in the hotel is buzzing that you were expected!" But she kept her normal behavior and checked him in exactly as she did every other customer. When she handed him his key, he thanked her and reached over the counter and shook her hand. She said he seems to deflect attention, rather than seek it out. But when he sees people recognize him (which apparently most do), he immediately says, "Hello. My name's Bob Redford. How are you?" and shakes their hand. She said he seems to take it as his responsibility to put others at ease. Every worker bee in the hotel had something nice to say about him because he treated them like people, not faceless servants. She waits on a lot of wealthy and famous people in that hotel and said he was quite the opposite of many.
Me too! I never "got" Robert Redford because I thought he looked simply generically good-looking and bland until he (and I, LOL) started getting older.
Now, for his age, I think he looks pretty hot!

Thank God he never went the way of Micky Rourke or Kenny Rogers or any of those other male (or female) celebrities that look like deformed wax figures now.

Thank you for sharing this story. I had heard Redford treated people with great respect and kindness and this seems to confirm it.

Nice to know there are good folks out there who don't act like jerks just b/c they are rich and/or famous.

OMG - Mickey Rourke and Kenny Rogers ruined themselves. Michael Douglas doesn't look any better since his surgery, either. At least he doesn't look as awful as the above mentioned. And bleeecchhh - Bruce Jenner.

Sad. Ridiculous looking and sad to see folks being so insecure that they have to rearrange their faces into something so unnatural looking.

I like Redford and think he looks fine...but do you all not know or remember that he actually DID undergo a face lift several years -- maybe even 10 years ago? It was not becoming to him at all ... I thought it looked worse than he looked before, because he had appeared to age naturally and quite nicely. His face appeared much too tight and it actually altered his features a bit. So now, what we see here in this photo is his natural aging since that facelift.

I see nothing wrong with getting cosmetic surgery, just wanted to make this statement lest anyone assume that what we are seeing in this photo is his natural, untouched face.

I love this story! This confirms what I have always heard about him...that's great. I have a friend who used to take special reservations for American Airlines and he told me that, without a doubt, the most hateful, entitled and rude celebrity he ever tried to help was Mark Harmon...and that he was so relentlessly rude to my friend that his wife Pam Dawber took the phone away from him and apologized to my friend and completed the transaction. So, when I hear about celebrities who conduct themselves like Redford, it just makes me admire them a bit more ...
And by the way, he said the very nicest well-known person he ever helped was Hillary Clinton...it was just after Bill Clinton was elected the first time, and she was still making their own reservations...my friend said she was gracious and kind and funny...I know this is off-topic and will probably be removed but I thought it might be a bit relevant to the post anyway...

I like Redford, a lot. But don't forget that, as a male, he had the luxury of still being able to get work when age started to show. A female actress who looks her age like this would NOT get the same "You go!" reaction. Sad double standard.
