Robert Redford has been forced to slow down his schedule. The former Barefoot in the Park star had fallen sick over the 2012 Christmas holidays. He has revealed that after weeks of visiting Europe his health seem to go down hill, he had been feeling “wiped out”.
He did feel ill just week as he was supposed to launch his 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Utah in January, 2013. He tells Esquire magazine,
“I got really sick over Christmas. The temperature went down to 10 degrees and I was skiing, and I was wiped out because I’d been doing stuff in Madrid, in Istanbul. But it’d take that to slow me down.”
However, Redford does also say that slowing his schedule and enjoying the fresh air during his time in Utah did helped him to recover, adding,
“I’ve been able to carve out spaces for myself. At Sundance, I’m in the mountains – my property is private. I get on a horse and ride for three, four hours. Sometimes five. I get lost.”
