Robert Redford Marries German Girlfriend

Posted: Updated:
HAMBURG (AP) - A German church says its pastor presided over the wedding between Robert Redford and his German partner.

Renate Massfeller, of the St. Catherine Church in Hamburg, said Wednesday that Pastor Frank Engelbrecht presided over the ceremony Saturday between the 72-year-old U.S. actor and artist Sibylle Szaggars at the luxury Louis C. Jacob Hotel.

The Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper said 30 friends and family members attended the service.

The 51-year-old Szaggars is an abstract artist whose work has been exhibited in Britain, Germany, the United States and elsewhere. She moved to Sundance, Utah - where Redford's Sundance Institute is based - in the 1990s, according to her Web site.

A message seeking comment from Redford's publicist in New York was not immediately returned.

Redford has starred in dozens of films, including "The Sting" and "The Natural." He won the Academy Award for best director for the 1980 film "Ordinary People."
