Oscar winner, Sundance Film Festival founder, multi-hyphenate creative force, and all around super cool guy, Robert Redford, turns 81 on August 18, 2017.
Redford dropped out of college, backpacked through Europe and tried his hand at painting before becoming a matinee idol. And his career is one to be envied.
His filmography is full of massive hits - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, All the President's Men, Ordinary People, The Natural, Out of Africa, A River Runs Through It, Indecent Proposal, The Horse Whisperer and on and on and on.
He's advocated for numerous causes throughout his career and is a fierce environmentalist, donating his time and funds to battle climate change.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Redford.
