Quoted: Robert Redford on the horrors of the Washington Post newsroom

"It was all giggling women and people doing their makeup and a general feeling of disorder."

Robert Redford on why attempts to film "All the President's Men" here at the Washington Post in 1975 failed, forcing them to recreate the newsroom on a studio set: "It was as bad for them as for us, and we knew we had to get out of there." Sorry, man. It worked out, though, right? The star is quoted in a new bio, excerpted in the April Vanity Fair.
