Robert Redford Pens Post Saying The State Of Politics Has Him Feeling 'Out Of Place' In His Own Country

By Alex Maxx

Robert Redford might be a well-known actor, director, and producer, but as of recently, he can't help but feel "out of place" in this country.

He touched on politics in a recent statement called "A Brief Statement on Big Things" shared on the Sundance Institute's website on Friday:

"For the first time I can remember, I feel out of place in the country I was born into and the citizenship I’ve loved my whole life." 

The Sundance Film Festival founder shared his disgust for the aggressive nature and violence of modern politics.

He also said that it is "hard to blame young people for calling us out" and questioned how children and adolescents of the new generation are supposed to be active and involved when given such horrid examples.

"How can we expect the next generation to step up and serve, to be interested in public life, and to aspire to get involved when all we show them is how to spar, attack, and destroy each other?"
