That strange sound you heard this morning was the collective sighs of millions of middle-aged women learning that Robert Redford got married over the weekend.
The 72 year-old Horse Whisperer actor married the 51 year-old German native Sibylle Szaggers in Hamburg, Germany. For those who are counting, that’s a 21 year age gap! Cradle robber!
Szaggers is an abstract artist (the German kind is always the most abstract), and lives in Sundance, Utah, where Redford has his studio.
This is Redford’s second marriage, following his divorce from Lola Redford in 1985. He was married to Lola for 17 years, but I don’t think this marriage will last that long, not because they aren’t in love, but because I don’t think Redford’s got that many years left.
