As one of Hollywood's greatest living legends, let's all join together in wishing Robert Redford a happy birthday! He turns 79 today and is still incredibly active in Hollywood, both in front of and behind the camera.
Though Redford has a lifetime of classic movies under his belt, like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, All the President's Men, and The Natural, most Moviepilot fans will recognize him best from his work as duplicitous head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and secret Hydra agent Alexander Pierce in [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](tag:254973).
I was lucky enough to interview Redford face to face this past weekend for his upcoming movie A Walk in the Woods, and I had to keep pinching myself because I couldn't believe I was sitting across from such a towering icon.
So do yourselves a favor - if the only movie of his that you've seen is Winter Soldier, grab one of his classics and watch it tonight in honor of one of the greatest legends that Hollywood has ever known.
