Not only has he given us some of the most prolific gangster films of all time, apparently he’s just as gangster in real life as he is in the movies.
Never one to shy away of his pointed opinions of Trump, he obliged CNN Sunday morning with a rare interview and true to character, the Goodfellas lead man didn’t hold anything back.
Personally, I think if anyone were able to distinguish a good guy from a gangster it would be Mr. DeNiro. Just a wild guess.
In true gutsy Italian fashion, he stated a few choice words for his critics and made it clear that he didn’t give a rat’s a** who didn’t like what he believes. (I’ll give you a hint: begins in “f” and ends with “em”)
It’s so hard to believe the Hollywood movie legend is now 76 years old young! Seems like I was just a lioness cub when Casino hit circa 95′.
One thing is for sure, no matter his age he’s still standing tall in whatever he believes in. Whether you agree or not, you kinda gotta respect his gangster.
🎉🎉🎉All together on the count of 3 … sing!!! — Ha-ppy Birth-day to one of the most prolific and respected actors to ever touch down in Tinseltown.
It’s hard to believe that Robert De Niro is now in his 70’s. I wish classic actors such as him were immortal & ageless –we’d keep him around forever.
Mr. De Niro has blessed the big screens with his magnificent and unequivocal gangsterness my entire life. From The Godfather to Goodfellas to Meet the Parents, he has had one of the most versatile and extensive careers in Hollywood.
Personally, I’d have to say one of my favorite roles portrayed by De Niro is probably of Jewish handicapper Sam “Ace” Rothstein in the forever classic gangster flick Casino — he totally finessed the role.
The 1995 American epic crime drama film, directed by Martin Scorsese stars De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone. In Casino, Rothstein (De Niro) is called by the Italian Mob to oversee the day-to-day operations at the fictional Tangiers Casino in Las Vegas.
In addition to starring in some of Hollywood’s leading motion pictures, Robert De Niro has also produced and directed various blockbuster projects including Prison Song, starring Q-Tip, Mary J Blige and Fat Joe. Check out this extended list of his work which dates back to the 70’s.
