Robert Redford might be Hollywood royalty, but if the shirt he wore at Sundance Thursday is any indication, he hasn’t forgotten where he came from.

During the opening of the Sundance film festival, the 81-year-old wore a long-sleeved t-shirt from The Sink, a very famous Boulder restaurant.

Redford attended CU Boulder for a year and a half, and was a janitor at The Sink in 1955 – which is probably why he’s wearing the shirt.

Redford bought the land that’s now Sundance Mountain Resort in 1969 and is the founder of the Sundance Institute.

During the opening day press conference for the Sundance Film Festival in Park City Utah, he talked about the #MeToo movement (among other things), saying “change is inevitable … I think the role for men right now is to listen.”

The Sundance Film Festival runs through Jan. 28.
