Captain America star Robert Redford is trending on Twitter as fans debate the most handsome man that has lived in their lifetime. As the question spread across the platform a couple of uniform answers emerged including Paul Newman and the Winter Soldier star. To be fair, he's a handsome man and this makes a ton of sense. However, a lot of Twitter users were mortified to log on and see Redford's name trending. (Almost as amused as the Watchmen fans were to see President in 2024 trending at the same time.) But, as with a lot of these moments, it became just a time to celebrate a legendary actor. Check out some of the best posts down below:
He's been retired from movies since The Winter Soldier hit theaters. But, back in 2016, told his grandson Dylan Redford about the decision to step away during an interview at Walker Art Center.

"I'm getting tired of acting. I'm an impatient person, so it's hard for me to sit around and do take after take after take," Redford explained. "I've got two acting projects in the works: Our Souls at Night, with Jane Fonda, a love story for older people who get a second chance in life, and Old Man with a Gun, a lighter piece with Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek. Once they're done then I'm going to say, 'Okay, that's goodbye to all that,' and then just focus on directing."

A great list
Paul Newman! My mom and I agreed that some men’s appeal just transcended generations. We both picked Paul Newman, Cary Grant, Robert Redford, and Sidney Poitier. https://t.co/QEhbhe63AA— Lynn Eddy (@lyyved) January 13, 2022

Well, it’s Friday and Paul Newman and Robert Redford are trending, so here’s a reminder that Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward attended the unveiling of the National Cultural Center (now @kencenter) with Mrs. Kennedy in 1962. pic.twitter.com/O98nY84tkO— JFK Library (@JFKLibrary) January 14, 2022
She had jokes
When Indecent Proposal came out in 1993, I asked my mom if she would have sex with Robert Redford for $ 1 million.
She said "Yes – assuming I could raise the million."— Sondra Harris ❄️ (@golfwidow) January 13, 2022
