Robert Redford is retiring from acting!
In a new Q&A interview, the 80-year-old actor exclusively told Closer Weekly he is taking a step back from Hollywood to instead focus on his family.
"Well it's been almost 50 years, and I've loved it," Robert told recently Closer at Minneapolis' Walker Art Center. "But with what time you have left, you want to keep it full. I think I'm done [after my next two films]."

The Way We Were star — who turned the big 8-0 last August — added he's "getting tired of acting." "I'm an impatient person, so it’s hard for me to sit around and do take after take," he said.
Most importantly, Robert is looking forward to now spending more time with his wife, Sibylle Szaggars, and his four kids.
"Family has always been first and foremost in his life. While he had to be away for work many times, he’s always been present in their lives. Now he wants to be so present, they get sick of him!" a friend told Closer.
