During a Q&A at the British Film Institute Southbank in November 2018, Jane Fonda complained that Robert Redford was two hours late every day and didn't know his lines. She also said that she doesn't think they'll work together again. (It's unclear whether Fonda was being humorous or really lambasting Redford.)
