i’d like to take a moment of ur time to check out these photos of robert de niro shirtless with suspenders. thank u

I’ve come to know De Niro fairly well down the years. He’s a very compassionate man. He’s basically a very good man and you can see that in him. So he can take on characters that are pretty disturbing and make them human because of that compassion. It’s taken me years to figure it out. He has an ability to make audiences feel empathy for very difficult characters because there is something very decent in him. […]And even now I still know of nobody who can surprise me on the screen the way he does — and did then. No actor comes to mind who can provide such power and excitement. - Martin Scorsese

I wish I had that knowledge of movies that he has. He’s like an encyclopedia. I could call him up and ask him about a certain movie, and he would know about it. He’s seen everything, it’s great. - Robert De Niro

Favorite badass characters: Jimmy Conway

Robert De Niro’s Jimmy Conway character is based on real-life mobster Jimmy Burke, aka Jimmy ‘The Gent’ or ‘The Big Irishman’, an ex-bricklayer believed to have orchestrated the $6m Lufthansa heist in 1978 and then killed 10 of those who took part. To portray him, De Niro plundered writer Nicholas Pileggi’s unused notes and obsessively asked the real Henry Hill for details about the real Jimmy — how he held his cigarette, used a ketchup bottle, reacted to various situations, etc.

There is this image that has been built up - invented, more like - and there’s me, living the life. I do not consider myself some sort of acting legend, just an actor doing his best with the material that is there at the time.
