Veteran actor and director Robert Redford, who had earlier revealed that he might take retirement after THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN, now thinks his statement was a mistake.

In an interview to variety.com, the 82-year-old actor has said that he never should have stated that his last film would be the upcoming crime-comedy.

Redford said: "That was a mistake. I should never have said that. If I'm going to retire, I should just slip quietly away from acting, but I shouldn't be talking about it because I think it draws too much attention in the wrong way. I want to be focused on this film and the cast."

Asked to clarify if this is not his final film, Redford responded by saying: "I'm not answering that."
