After divorce from wife Lola Van Wagenen, Robert Redford married to Sibylle Szaggars since 2009
In April 2014, Time Magazine included Robert Redford in their annual TIME 100 as one of the "Most Influential People in the World," declaring him the "Godfather of Indie Film".
Redford was a big name in the 1960s and 1970s, but even though he is not much seen on the screen nowadays, fans still remember him for being one of the greatest actors in the industry. For such a big star, Robert Redford is a very humble and private person. He was first married to Lola Van Wagenen for 27 years before they divorced.
Then in 2009, he married his girlfriend Sibylle Szaggars whom he had been in a relationship with for 12 years. From Redford’s first marriage, he had four children of whom the eldest son died when he was an infant.

I got married very young, at 21. Obviously, I don't want to denigrate the person I married, there were a lot of good reasons. But when you ask me a question, like why?, I have to say it was to save my life. That's what it felt like at the time

I got lost for a time. I was totally faithful to my wife. We were very tight; we went through a lot of stuff together. Lola now lives in Vermont, and we two remain close.
