Quoted: Robert Redford on the horrors of the Washington Post newsroom

By The Reliable Source

Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford in "All the President's Men," 1976. (Warner Bros.)



"It was all giggling women and people doing their makeup and a general feeling of disorder."



-- Robert Redford on why attempts to film "All the President's Men" here at the Washington Post in 1975 failed, forcing them to recreate the newsroom on a studio set: "It was as bad for them as for us, and we knew we had to get out of there." Sorry, man. It worked out, though, right? The star is quoted in a new bio, excerpted in the April Vanity Fair.
