Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday that she had no plans to retire.

"My current answer, that will continue to be my answer: As long as I can do the job full steam, I will be here," Ginsburg, who was appointed to the Supreme Court by former President Bill Clinton in 1993, said during an appearance at the Sundance Film Festival in an interview with NPR's Nina Totenberg.

She also joked she had an "excuse" for staying.

"The next excuse was the (Smithsonian) Museum of American Art has taken away my Josef Albers, a painter I love. I couldn't think of leaving until I get my Albers back," she said, referring to her loaning a painting to the museum. She added that the museum has returned the painting.

Ginsburg, 84, was appearing at the film festival at the premiere of "RBG," a documentary about her. The film will be broadcast on CNN at a date that has not been determined, Axios reported.
