#Quote
1 [on Michelle Pfeiffer] She has a great sense of humor. There's a scene after the first time we have a tryst in Up Close & Personal (1996); she says goodbye to me and hands me a gift. I was just supposed to look at it and smile. I unwrapped it and inside was a picture frame, and Michelle had slipped in a photo of herself in a bathing suit winning the Miss Orange County beauty contest. I still have the photo.
2 [on filming All Is Lost (2013)] It was a bold and pure cinematic experience. It was stripped to the bone and I found that very appealing.. Being wet all day was the hardest thing. You get depressed being wet all the time.
3 [on choosing Jackie Evancho to play his daughter in The Company You Keep (2012)] I have a big thing about child actors who "act" as opposed to child actors who can be natural, who can be real. Scarlett Johansson was a kid when we did The Horse Whisperer (1998), and I was concerned if a child looked like they were acting it would be like fingernails on a blackboard. So I'm depressed and I go back to my room and I do something I don't usually do and that's surf. And suddenly I'm skipping across these channels and there's this angelic face..singing. And there's a close-up and I think: 'Who's that?' and she was singing Puccini's opera.
4 I believe history has a habit of repeating itself, that's for sure, but one of things I'm critical of my country on is that we don't seem to take note of the lessons that history teaches us. My country is pretty prone to everything wanting to be black and white, or red, white and blue. And in my experience of life, nothing was ever that simple. No one was dealing with the grey areas. So I decided to become a filmmaker so I could deal with that.
5 [US President Barack Obama] has just rejected a permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline--a project that promised riches for the oil giants and an environmental disaster for the rest of us. His decision represents a victory of historic proportions for people from throughout the pipeline path and all across America.
6 Storytellers broaden our minds: engage, provoke, inspire, and ultimately, connect us.
7 I am passionate. I am political about my country, about what it is, how strong it is, how strong it remains. Lions for Lambs (2007) got rough treatment, and I think it was because--and I don't want to sound defensive--but I think it was misperceived. I am not a left-wing person. I'm just a person interested in the sustainability of my country.
8 [on the Sundance Film Festival] Political activism has been a part of my life and part of the films I try to make. But we don't focus on any one theme or another. We don't take any ideological stance. I'm anti-ideology. Our work tries to transcend politics. Whatever side you're on, we try to show stories from every part of the country, and so 'red state, blue state' doesn't mean a whole lot to us.
9 [on the death of longtime friend Paul Newman] I have lost a real friend. My life--and this country--is better for his being in it.
10 They throw that word "star" at you loosely, and they take it away equally loosely. You take the responsibility for their crappy movie, that's what that means.
11 [on working with Dustin Hoffman on All the President's Men (1976)] One of the joys of the movie was working with Dustin; he has one of the most wonderful acting minds I've ever worked with.
12 [1972 comment on Paul Newman] Paul is the most generous man with whom I've ever worked. We had a fantastic rapport shooting [Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)]. It was one of the happiest experiences of my life.
13 [during his opening-night address at the Sundance Film Festival, claiming U.S. politicians exploited public support of invasions] We put all our concerns on hold to let the leaders lead. I think we're owed a big, massive apology.
14 All my life I've been dogged by guilt because I feel there is this difference between the way I look and the way I feel inside.
15 A lot of what acting is, is paying attention.
16 I often feel I'll just opt out of this rat race and buy another hunk of Utah.
17 I've bought hundreds of acres around my home. That's why I moved here from the coast. There's plenty of room to roam and be alone with nature. That's living. The city life is merely existing.
18 I got a review when I was starting in live television. This guy Jack O'Brian called me "hammy and overwrought". Now I'm looking back on it, I'd like to hold on to those reviews. It keeps you in perspective. It really does. Part of you says, "You know, I never ever really got over that." And what I think you learn very early on is not to believe your own press clippings, one way or another, just do your work. Because you're your own tough critic. If you focus on doing the work, you'll get to a place of refinement where those reviews which are often hyped up too much to the negative or the positive fall away.
19 [on his friendship with Paul Newman] There are certain friendships that are sometimes too good and too strong to talk about.
20 [on his relationship with Paul Newman] When we made the movies nobody used the word "chemistry". Nobody used the word "bonding". It was just: "Get up there and do your job!"
21 I have to be human, of course, to be flattered by attention from the public. How could you not be? But it gets pretty intense when people are going after your clothes, and mobbing you in the streets, and you have to hide. That's kind of amusing, and kind of mind-boggling when it happens - you kind of go with it and have fun with it. Then it gets tiring, and then it gets worse when you realize you're being robbed of a vital part of your life, which is your privacy. And you also know what's coming your way is artificial, because those people are reacting to something they saw on the screen, not you as a person.
22 You should prepare when you go to a public event to be public. That's when I will sign autographs. But not when you're going about your normal business.
23 I learned early that you'd better know what you're talking about. You'd better realize that certain issues are going to be so hot - no matter what reason, what logic you apply to it - you're going to be met with an opposition just because their viewpoint is different, and there's no way they're going to accept your reasoning. Furthermore, they're going to attack you because you will be portrayed as not being credible: "You're an actor. What do you know?"
24 by Robert Osborne, "Academy Awards 1974 Oscar Annual"] I used to feel competitive about a career, but now the only things I'm really passionate about are my family, the environment and Indians.
25 [on refusing the role of Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967), the role that made Dustin Hoffman a star seven years before Redford obtained super-star status himself] I never did look like a 21-year-old just out of college who'd never been laid.
26 Some people have analysis. I have Utah.
27 I am perhaps the best-looking grandfather around, apart from Marlon Brando, of course!
28 As a director, I wouldn't like me as an actor. As an actor, I wouldn't like me as a director.
29 [on his appearance in Havana (1990)] All everyone talked about was aging. It took me by surprise because I have not thought of myself that way. I assumed I would age naturally, as time went on.
