James Redford Dead - Robert Redford's Son Dies at 58

James Redford has sadly died.

The son of Robert Redford, who followed in his footsteps as a filmmaker and activist in his own right, passed away at his home on Friday (October 16) in Marin County, Calif. at the age of 58, his wife Kyle confirmed on Twitter.

Jamie died today. We’re heartbroken. He lived a beautiful, impactful life & was loved by many. He will be deeply missed. As his wife of 32 [years], I’m most grateful for the two spectacular children we raised together. I don’t know what we would’ve done [without] them over the past 2 [years],” she wrote.

She later confirmed in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune that he died due to bile-duct cancer in his liver, discovered last November while awaiting a transplant.

James was known mostly for documentary work, including The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia and Toxic Hot Seat. His most recent film, Playing for Keeps, had its premiere this month at the Mill Valley Film Festival, and explored the health benefits of play time for children and adults.

Our thoughts are with James Redford‘s loved ones at this difficult time.

We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2020.

Robert Redford Taking Backseat Role at Sundance From Now On

The 2019 Sundance Film Festival just kicked off and Robert Redford, the founder of the festival, surprisingly announced that he will be taking a backseat role from now on.

During a press conference to open the festival on Thursday (January 24), the 82-year-old actor and filmmaker made a brief appearance.

“Having done this for God, 34 years now, since the festival started,” Redford said (via Deadline). “I think we are at a point where I can move on to a different place.”

“I don’t think the festival needs a whole lot of introduction now,” he added.

Last year, Redford announced that his movie The Old Man & The Gun would mark his final appearance on the big screen.

Robert Redford Says Announcing His Retirement Was A Mistake

Robert Redford may not be retiring after all!

Last month, the 82-year-old actor announced that his new flick The Old Man & the Gun would be his final film.

It sounds like Robert may have spoken a little too soon!

“I think it was a mistake to say that I was retiring because you never know. It did feel like it was time maybe, to concentrate on another category,” Robert told People at the film’s premiere.

He added, “I shouldn’t have said that because it draws attention away from the film.”

Robert has kicked off his acting career at 21-years-old and has earned two Oscars, six Golden Globes, and one BAFTA.

Casey Affleck Shares What He's Learned from #MeToo Movement

Casey Affleck joins Tika Sumpter, Sissy Spacek, and Donald Glover on the red carpet for the premiere of their movie The Old Man & The Gun on Thursday (September 20) at the Paris Theatre in New York City.

The film’s star Robert Redford also walked the carpet, as did special guest Keegan-Michael Key. Casey was joined by his girlfriend Floriana Lima.

On the red carpet, Casey was asked by Variety to share what he has learned from the #MeToo movement. He previously faced accusations of sexual harassment back in 2010.

“I mean, look, if you haven’t learned anything from all of this, then you really haven’t been paying attention, and that goes for everybody,” Casey said. “It’s probably a conversation that deserves a little more time than standing on a red carpet. But I would say that one of the most important lessons is to try to remain as open as you can to other perspectives and to listen to other peoples experiences and, you know, take care of one another.”

FYI: Tika is wearing a Blumarine gown.
