Is Robert Redford religious?
In an interview with Playboy, when asked if he believed in an afterlife, Redford said, "I'm not sure I do. I've explored every religion, some very deeply, enough to know there's not one philosophy that can satisfy me. Problems can't be solved with one way of thinking. If anything is my guide, nature is. That's where my spirituality is. I don't believe in organized religion because I don't believe people should be organized in how they think, in what they believe.”
