WASHINGTON (AP) -- The careers of Robert Redford, Tina Turner, Tony Bennett, Julie Harris and ballerina Suzanne Farrell were celebrated by a host of film, stage and music stars at the annual Kennedy Center Honors last night.

Redford -- actor, director and creator of Utah's Sundance independent film festival -- took some potshots from Paul Newman, his co-star in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "The Sting."

Referring to Redford's reputation for lateness, Newman said: "Backstage they think the only reason he's even in the vicinity was because they told him this whole thing was yesterday."

Willie Nelson performed "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" and "Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" as his tribute to Redford.
