Robert Redford: Change is good

Robert Redford

Robert Redford embraces change because he doesn't want to "dry up".

The 76-year-old Hollywood icon and founder of the Sundance Film Festival is not at all compelled to stay in a rut.

Robert is open to going in new directions with his life.

"I like change," he told Extra.

"I think that gives me a chance. If things stay the way they are, some part of me would dry up, so I like change."

Robert is happy that President Barack Obama was reelected for a second term.

The star hopes that the head of state will "pay attention to the environment and energy," and focus on other issues like gun control.

"It feels like there's beginning to be a dialogue with the right people… that debate should be among the people that are directly involved with law," Robert declared.

The 2013 Sundance Film Festival held in Park City, Utah commenced on January 17 and will take place until January 27.

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
