Robert Redford has been named as one of 2014's "100 Most Influential People" in the new issue of Time magazine.

Redford, writes movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, "created a utopia in the middle of conservative Utah for successful filmmakers to interact with young filmmakers, and thus Sundance — the laboratory and festival — was born."

Weinstein also praises Redford's acting ability, his long-running battle of practical jokes with his late friend Paul Newman, and the fact that when Redford and Weinstein go to lunch, "Bob always gets away without paying the bill."
