The 76-year-old film legend who is best known for his roles in "The Way We Were," and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" to name only a couple has revealed that while filming his latest dramatic thriller "All Is Lost: he was pelted with so much water he developed a severe ear infection that lasted for several weeks, making him very ill.
Sources close to Redford stated:
“Bob plays a man lost at sea in a treacherous storm in the movie, and he was constantly being hit with water from high-pressure hoses.
“He was soaking wet for at least 20 days. His ears became blocked, and after filming he came down with a fever and terrible ear infection,, doctors told him he’d lost 60 percent of the hearing in his left ear.”
Redford now fears his hearing will continue to diminish, and has hinted that after his last health issues brought on from his demanding film career he may just have to result n using stunt doubles from now on.
