CONFIRMED: Robert Redford has still got it at 76 (and he’s coming to TIFF)

(Image: TIFF)

Robert Redford has been many things: a heartbreaker in The Way We Were, a truth seeker in All the President’s Men, a con man in The Sting. In The Company You Keep, which brings him to this year’s TIFF, Redford directs and stars as a former activist who plays hide-and-seek with a journalist (Shia LaBeouf). No, we can’t believe he’s already 76, either.

More than ever, TIFF is an event to which filmmakers come to get North American distribution for their films (and not just a chance to get sloshed and walk across a giant rug). After eight days of wheeling and dealing, the following 13 films have been picked up for release.

Trust star Catherine Keener had brunch at the Drake yesterday (one of her favourite Toronto hangouts) and returned after dark for a cocktail. Between visits, she was spotted shopping at LAB Consignment on Ossington. Justin Long (in town promoting Robert Redford’s The Conspirator) also stopped by at the hotel last night, getting his groove on in the lounge. If only Bill Gates had shown up to challenge him to a Mac/PC dance-off.

Robert Redford returns to TIFF after 18 years for The Conspirator

Robert Redford spent a good portion of Saturday’s press conference for his film The Conspirator (he is both director and producer) brushing off old quotes an Italian journalist lobbed at him, including “As an actor, I wouldn’t like me as a director; as a director, I wouldn’t like me as an actor.” It’s been 18 years since Redford’s last visit to TIFF (for A River Runs Through It), and it’s the only festival he’s attended other than Sundance, which he founded. The new film is about the trial of Mary Surratt (played by Robin Wright Penn), who was convicted without evidence and eventually hanged as a conspirator in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Actors James McAvoy, Kevin Kline, Alexis Bledel and Justin Long all attended the presser. See photos of the stars below.

Year of the silver fox: TIFF’s 10 hottest celebrities over 50

Why? Because he is gallantry personified and so perfectly, effortlessly tousled. (Image: Charley Gallay/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images)

Today is Colin Firth’s 50th birthday, and you know what that means. Time to praise the lord for tight-fitting sweaters and beautiful men with actual talent—in that order. Seriously, though. Has the half-century mark ever looked better? It’s a nice reminder that Hollywood hunks needn’t necessarily hail from Generation Bieber. With that in mind, we count down TIFF’s Top 10 Foxes Over 50.
