Brian Williams, Robert De Niro is known for his roles in big screen but in real life, is not the role of interviewee. And so, when NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams interviewed De Niro on Day 3 of the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday, the superstar of the big screen that offers a handful of moments of light and humor.
Here are some highlights of what the Oscar-winning actor and co-founder of the festival had to say: 1. It is no secret that De Niro is not a big fan of doing interviews. So much so that when co-founder Jane Rosenthal stood up to introduce the duo, he recalled having received the request for Williams to interview the star of Little Fockers. “Good idea,” he said, “But have you seen the interviews with Bob?” Williams replied that he had an interview “as a fan.” Williams was able to break De Niro out of his shell? The answer was typically not with the public along for the ride, laughing freely when the responses of the star stopped short.
Here are some examples: Williams: “How do you feel when people come to you?” De Niro: “I’m alright People come to me saying ‘Hey Bob. That’s all.” Williams: “Would you say that you are an introvert”?
De Niro: “I suppose in some way and some aspects I am not.”
Williams asked why De Niro out of your files sent to the University of Texas.
“They were the only people that would take him,” said De Niro.
Williams: “When was the last time I saw” Taxi Driver “as a whole?”
De Niro could not remember: “If we encounter on television that could be part of it or part of it.”
2. “I do not do that, Brian,” said De Niro when Williams hit to see what the actor makes scrolling through movie channels like HBO and Starz and see Goodfellasor Raging Bull. “I watch the news. You look. I’m very set in my way. I see NBC News, I’m seeing today.”
3. Lee scripts on your iPad! “It’s fast,” said De Niro. “I force myself to read scripts more quickly on it.”
4. He is political. The only time that De Niro was really encouraged when Williams asked about the policy. “I think of the possibility that the government shutdown and I think, how we let this happen?” Said De Niro. “I know that (President) Obama was trying to close the gap. His intentions were good. Many of these people, their intentions were good.’re Playing with people’s lives.”
5. Williams saved the best for last, the reading of the brilliant description of a line dedicated to De Niro the actor’s page on IMDB.com: “Robert Mario De Niro, who is thought to be one of the best actors of his time Born in New York City in 1943 to two artists. “As the waves rose applause, De Niro quiet the crowd,” Wait, I mean a thing my name is Antonio. “
