Hollywood legend Robert Redford was in Dublin, Ireland on Friday (11Jul08) to collect an honorary degree from the city's Trinity College.
The 71-year-old actor was invited by the university's School of Drama, Film and Music.
Speaking to students ahead of the ceremony, Redford offered his support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama: "I think Obama is not tall on experience...but I believe he's a really good person. He's smart. And he does represent what the country needs most now, which is change.
"He's getting young people interested in politics again."
