Movie legend Robert Redford is not happy with the Lifetime Achievement Award he received at the 2002 Academy Awards because he is not ready to give up his acting career yet.

According to contactmusic.com, Redford admits he felt the award was Hollywood's way of telling him to retire gracefully.

He says: "Yeah, it is like you suddenly feel like you are being bronzed. I don't feel ready for that yet, myself. I have got some nice projects ahead. In no way do I feel in the mood to retire. Sometimes when you get a lot of awards, you begin to feel like, 'Why don't you wait a little bit'?".
