Legendary zoomer actors Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman have learned a thing or two along the way. Both are in Toronto to promote their new movies at the Toronto International Film Festival. Redford, who recently turned 76, says he’s picked up a few constants during his life, “You should always be curious, because of you’re curious you’ll be exploring, and if you’re exploring you’ll develop. So, I can never cease to learn.” Redford’s new film is called “The Company you Keep”. And Dustin Hoffman, who turned 75 last month, says he’s still getting used to his milestone age … calling it a stunning feeling. He says the only way to get on, “is to keep being myself. I’ve never grown up!” Hoffman makes his directorial debut with “Quartet,” a comedy about a retirement home for opera singers and classical musicians. The film stars Maggie Smith, who’s receiving the Stratford Festival’s Legacy Award at a gala in Toronto Monday night.
