Personal quotes

"It's important not to indicate. People don't try to show their feelings, they try to hide them."
"I don't like to watch my own movies - I fall asleep in my own movies."

Robert De Niro, born in 17 August 1945, is the son of a Greenwich Village abstract expressionist, Robert De Niro' Snr. His nickname was Bobby Milk (childhood, due to his pallor). He trained with Lee Strasberg and worked off-Broadway until he became a big star in the late sixties.

Probably, he is the leading actor of his generation. After Copolla's Godfather II and Scorsese's Taxi Driver, he became the star of seventies. Before he earned the critical attention, he starred in "Bang the Drum Slowly", Scorsese's "Mean Street". In the "Mean Street", he was a psychotic gangster with Harvey Keitel.

His most impressive thing is the ability of acting any type of person from different time, and different genre. A saxophone player in New York New York, a brave soldier in the Vietnam war in "Deer Hunter", Jake La Motta (Boxer) in "Raging Bull", a priest in "True Confessions", a comedian in "The King of Comedy", a future plumber in "Brazil", a former violent christian follower in the "Mission", Al Capone in "Untouchables", an ex-cop in "Midnight Run", A gangster, "Goodfellas", a psychotic patient in "Awakenings", a psychotic man in "Cape Fear", a fire detective in "Backdraft", a bad-temper husband in "This boy's life", an unconfident cop in "Mad Dog and Glory", a local bus driver in "Bronx Tale", a casino owner in "Casino", and a perfect thief in "Heat" are showing his versatile talents.
