PeopleSpot > Robert Redford



Robert Redford

Although the actor who has played Bob Woodward and Jay Gatsby is best known for his successful movies, Robert Redford originally wanted to be a painter, and he has dedicated much of his life to causes he is passionate about outside of the movie world. After dropping out of college, Redford studied painting in Europe and at New York's Pratt Institute. A course in theatrical set design led to his interest in acting, and the rest is history.

Aside from his string of acclaimed movies like "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Out of Africa" and "The Sting," Redford's biggest contribution to the film world has been his founding of The Sundance Institute, which is dedicated to the support of independent filmmakers. The institute's best-known program is the Sundance Film Festival, held in Utah each January. Among many other initiatives, Sundance runs a program to support Native American filmmakers and a Writers Fellowship Program.
