Actor Robert De Niro did not have formal education did you know? But despite that, he is now a holder of Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree! Yup that’s for his great contribution to the arts.
The award-winning actor was given the special degree on Sunday, May 27, during the commencement exercises at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. Just like any graduating student, De Niro also wore a cap and gown during the event. I must say it looked good on him when he took to the stage to deliver his speech.
Robert De Niro and wife Grace Hightower welcomed a little baby girl to the world ...
The little gem, whom they named Helen Grace, was born via surrogate.
De Niro is now officially the leader of a huge tribe!
He has 4 other children, daughter Drena, 40, and son Raphael, 35, with former wife Diahnne Abbott, as well as 16-year-old twin sons Julian and Aaron, born via surrogate with ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith.
67-year-old Robert De Niro has made a lot of contributions in the entertainment industry, no doubt about that. It’s no wonder he was chosen to be the recipient of the prominent Cecil B. DeMille Award at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards in January 2011.
Robert De Niro was chosen by the Foreign Press Association Board of Directors. Not everyone is fit to receive this award. Careful screening is done before the board makes a decision. It only goes for people who have made an “incredible impact” on the entertainment biz. Robert De Niro did that.
Robert De Niro welcomed a grandson on Thursday!
Bobby is a grand dad! Congrats!
Brad Pitt took a day off Tuesday (from sitting around with Angie at the hospital) to go and chillax with Bono at his Eze villa in France.
Brad was there with his kids Maddox and Pax. But Brad wasn't the only big name there, Robert De Niro was there too with his wife Grace Hightower and his kids.
Thus, Maddox and Pax enjoyed their time and played along with De Niro's kids 12-year-old twins Julian and Aaron and 10-year-old son Elliot.
One of the most famous gangsters of the big screen is Robert De Niro ... One of the most famous gangsters of music is 50 Cent ... So, what happens when you throw these two together in a movie and add Al Pacino to the mix too?
Righteous Kill is the next big movie ... De Niro and Pacino are detectives who are hunting down a guy who takes the law into his own hand ... but he may be one of their own!
But when you look at it, there's no comparison ... De Niro and Pacino vs. 50 Cent!
Well, the thing is, 50 Cent wants this chance badly; maybe this will be his break to make it BIG in Hollywood!
I think this movie is bound to be a hit ... Come On! Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together in one movie! It's going to be a smash!
In promotion of this upcoming summer movie (It's set for a 22nd August release) De Niro and 50 Cent do the March issue of VIBE magazine.
The two gangsters pose for the cover, which is stunning! The headline of the cover story is Now That's Gangster ...
Robert De Niro knows a lot about married life, he's tied the knot twice and had a long-term live-in relationship once ... let's hope he passed on the right stuff to his eldest son Raphael!
Raphael De Niro is Bobby's son from his first marriage to actress Diahnne Abbott, and he's going to tie the knot this coming March.
The wedding ceremony will be held at the One & Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas and will be attended by 120 of close friends and family.
The couple -Raphael and Claudine De Matos- got their rings from Lorraine Schwartz and their wedding cake is going to be made by famous confectioner Sylvia Weinstock.
Today is the birthday of Hollywood giant, Robert De Niro.
De Niro turns 64 ... Happy B-Day Bobby!
His latest activities include launching another restaurant in Australia!
Bobby flew to Melbourne to open another branch of his famous Japanese fusion eatery Nobu!
Nobu already has 17 eateries around the world in cities like New York, London, Hong Kong and Milan and Melbourne now joins the list.
The cool thing about Nobu, is that the recipes are the same all over the world in every branch, it's the Nobu style ... it's the same mouth-watering taste!
Hey! Fireman's Fund Insurance! Take your law suit back! You Can't sue Robert De Niro!
Back in 2003, when Robert De Niro was diagnosed with prostate cancer ... that wasn't the only bad surprise he got ... he got sued by Fireman's Fund Insurance as well!
You might ask why? ... the answer is easy ... they're scum-balls !!!
No really, Fireman's Fund filed a law suit against Bobby for costing them about $1.8 million after the shooting of 'Hide & Seek' was delayed for 60 days because he had to go through treatment for his illness.
So, in not so many words, they sued him because he got cancer!
It was amazing seeing two Hollywood giants -Robert De Niro & Al Pacino- team up in 'Heat' ... i was wondering when will they do another movie together because they make one heck of a team together on screen!
Well, my dream is coming true! De Niro & Pacino are going to reunite again in the upcoming movie 'Righteous Kill'.
The story is about two cops chasing a seriel killer ... the two cops being Bobby & Al! ... I can't wait!!!
Remember 'Meet The Parents' & 'Meet The Fockers' ? Robert De Niro will be back with a third installment of the hilarious comedy, with 'Little Fockers' !
The first two were great, funny & really entertaining ... I hope this third sequel will be even funnier.
Wouldn't it be cool if everybody comes back for the movie? All of them, not only De Niro, but Dustin Hoffman, Barbara Streisand, Ben Stiller, Blythe Danner & Teri Polo as well.
If 'Little Fockers' is what I expect, we'll al be in non-stop laughing mode!
In 'The Score' there's a scene where Robert De Niro cooks a yummy meal for himself & his girlfriend ... He looked so nice in the kitchen, he even made cooking look sexy! I assumed that the guy knows how to cook & makes a few romantic meals for himself & his wife in real life ... I was wrong!
It turns out that De Niro doesn't know how to cook at all! ... It's true he loves food & appreciates cooking, but that's it!
De Niro invested in a few restaurants in New York City & Los Angeles including Nobu, Tribeca Grill & Ago.
The Good Shepherd is all THE movie this week ... & on the occasion of the movie's premier, Angelina Jolie, Robert De Niro & Matt Damon will be on Larry King Live next Monday. Jolie & Damon will talk about the movie & Bob De Niro will talk about his directorial experience.
The show is very much worth watching, here's a sneak peek on what Angelina & Larry will be saying:
LK: Are you gonna get married?
LK: I wish you lots of luck. Someone said you’re planning a Christmas wedding in South Africa.
AJ: [giggles] No… but thank you for your support if I was. But I’m not.
After A Bronx Tale & The Good Shepherd, Robert De Niro reveals that he won't be going through another directorial experience again, after he makes a sequel for The Good Shepherd.
De Niro said he would like to do a sequel for The Good Shepherd, where he could revisit the characters & see what happened to them.
He said in a press conference while promoting his new movie: "I'm not gonna direct many more movies. I directed three and I think that's it for me. But I'd like to do a second part of this story from 1961 to the fall of the Berlin Wall. I would love to revisit the characters and see how they wind up. That's really something that would be worth doing."
