Tropes & Trivia about him and his roles:
- Cool Old Guy: Many of his later roles have him play such roles, usually acting as mentors to younger characters.
- Richard Nixon, the Used Car Salesman: In Watchmen, the man himself is the President of the United States.
- Silver Fox: He's aged very well and is still quite handsome and just as charismatic well into his later years, to the point that many who watched Indecent Proposal were incredulous at the idea of his character having to rely largely on his wealth to seduce women.
- Those Two Actors: He has played alongside Natalie Wood three times — Inside Daisy Clover, This Property Is Condemned and The Candidate. While the first two pictures were not darlings with critics and Wood only had a cameo as herself in the third, Wood and Redford were good friends and knew each other since high school. Redford was also the best man of Richard Gregson at his wedding with Wood in 1969.
