    Yeah, he’s talkin’ to Trump...and you. On Monday night during his speech accepting the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Chaplin Award, actor Robert De Niro blasted the Trump administration. "I don't make movies for rich liberal elites,” De Niro said at the event, which took place at Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theatre. “We make movies to entertain audiences. Audiences vote by seeing them; critics vote by writing about them; and then posterity takes its time to decide if they’re art - or not.” He continued: I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because of our government’s hostility towards...

    The closing night of the Tribeca Film Festival brought together the cast from two of the most important and influential movies ever made: The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II. Led by the festival’s co-founder, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and Talia Shire took the stage with their director, Francis Ford Coppola, to look back on the iconic films after they screened back to back for the audience. The discussion, which was led by director Taylor Hackford, focused mainly on the first film, which allowed De Niro — who only appeared in Part II...

    Sony Pictures Classics’ The Comedian, which critics have thrown apples at with a 24% RT rating, is suffering with $950K at 848 sites. Sean Penn was originally set to direct Robert De Niro with Kristen Wiig back in October 2011 from Art Linson and Comedy Central roastmaster Jeffrey Ross’ script. Mike Newell stepped in when the movie secured its financing, but then stepped out due to scheduling. By July 2015, Taylor Hackford was aboard to steer the ship. SPC tried to give this movie a push during awards season, premiering at November’s AFI fest, but the pic didn’t catch on...

Schrader, writer of cinematic classics such as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, posted to his Facebook page Saturday night that Donald Trump’s election is a “call to violence,” claiming that he had heard a similar call in the 60s.

The event was chaired by producing giant and FIDF national board member Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl. “If you’re supporting Trump, I want nothing to do with you,” said De Niro, after refusing to pose for a photograph with (Arnold Schwarzenegger)>/a>.

    How the media decides an election My issue here is with Reuters, not with De Niro. I don’t agree with De Niro, but if he wants to say what he thinks, hey. Knock yourself out, Bobby. You have as much right as me or anyone else. Nor do I care that he did it at an event that was supposed to be all about film awards and not politics. Whatever. It’s on your mind, say it. Be who you are. The news judgment of Reuters is another matter entirely. I don’t care how much of a A-list star De Niro...

During a question-and answer session Saturday at the Sarajevo Film Festival, De Niro said, like Bickle, the U.S. Republican presidential candidate is where he shouldn’t be. “God help us,” he added. …

    “Every day, for 40 f%^&% years, one of you has stopped me on the street and said, ‘You talkin’ to me?’” groused Robert De Niro at a recent Q&A at the Tribeca Film festival reuniting the makers of “Taxi Driver”. Martin Scorsese, Harvey Keitel, Jodie Foster, Cybil Shepherd and screenwriter Paul Schrader all swapped anecdotes, and De Niro led the audience in one last rendition of his most famous line, in an effort to expunge the ghost. He’s not the only one haunted by the role, which remains the template for every young Hollywood actor eager to put the lucre...

  • Robert De Niro Hit with $6.4 Million Tax Bill

    Robert De Niro owed $6.4 million to the IRS for his 2013 tax return, but it appears he just learned of it. The Oscar winner's tax debt surfaced in documents first uncovered by the Smoking Gun. Mr. De Niro has an estimated worth of over $200 million, and is reputed to spend $125,000 a month on his rental on Central Park West. In that sense, this tax bill doesn't seem so large. But it was unpaid, as the notice to New York City’s Department of Finance revealed. That is what an IRS lien filing is all about. But right away,...

    Robert De Niro wasn't acting when he broke down in sobs on Katie Couric's day time talk show Monday. The usually tough-guy actor was a guest on Katie to discuss the hit film Silver Linings Playbook with director David O. Russell and co-star Bradley Cooper. When asked about the film's premise - that of a bipolar character trying in vain to fit in - The Goodfellas actor began to cry. 'Did you feel a greater responsibility about doing a film that David had so much personally invested in?' the anchor asked, following up on a question asked of Russell. 'Of...

    Robert De Niro said in a recent interview that his late father never discussed his homosexuality. "He was very private so he wouldn't go into that with me," De Niro told Katie Couric on Yahoo News. "I don't really know much about that side of my father." The Academy Award winning actor said he did have "some inkling" that his father was gay and his mother even made some inferences but it was never "brought up." "You kind of ... knew but didn't know," he said. De Niro has been making media rounds to promote his documentary, "Remembering the Artist:...

Freeman and Sheen conclude, “For if we believe that the spread of nuclear weapons is...

  • At 40 Years Old, 'The Godfather' Has a Profound and Complicated Legacy

    Once, it was thought of as the gangster movie to end all gangster movies. Before he played Don Corleone, Marlon Brando had been all but written off after several flops. But of course that's exactly what "The Godfather," which opened in New Jersey 40 years ago this Saturday, was not. Instead, it was the gangster movie that began all gangster movies, at least as we know them now: not just its own sequels, "The Godfather: Part II" and "The Godfather: Part III," but also "Goodfellas," "Donnie Brasco," "Analyze This," "Scarface," "The Freshman," "Prizzi's Honor" and "Married to the Mob," not...

    NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- Actor Robert De Niro has apologized for a joke with racial overtones he made at a New York fundraiser for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. "Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney," The Hollywood Reporter quoted De Niro as saying during his opening remarks at Monday night's $5,000-a-plate event, which Obama's wife, Michelle attended. "Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?" CNN reported Obama's campaign press secretary Olivia Alair called the joke "inappropriate" Tuesday.
