Robert De Niro's 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.
  • Don't talk it [shooting a scene] away, do it!
  • Some people say that drama is easy, and comedy is hard. Not true. I've been making comedies the last couple of years, and it's nice. When you make a drama, you spend all day beating a guy to death with a hammer, or what have you. Or you have to take a bite out of somebody's face. On the other hand, with a comedy, you yell at Billy Crystal for an hour, and you go home.
  • [interview in Chicago Sun Times, 1/8/98] I think Hollywood has a class system. The actors are like the inmates, but the truth is they're running the asylum. You've got to look at the whole studio structure. There's these guys. We call them suits. They have the power to okay a film. They're like your parents, going, "We have the money". But at the same time they say to us actors, "We love you. We can't do without you". You know, I've been around a long time. I've seen the suits run the asylum. I think I can do it as good or even better. Let me try it. That's why I have TriBeCa.

Robert De Niro: From Acting To Business

Robert De Niro is a legendary American actor, director, and producer born on August 14, 1943 in New York City. The son of Robert De Niro Sr, an expressionist painter, and Virginia Admiral, a painter, he built his career in the entertainment industry through hard work and dedication. De Niro’s parents divorced due to parental differences which left him to be raised by his mother in Greenwich Village.

Early Life and Education

De Niro discovered his passion for the arts at an early age. He made his stage debut at the age of 10 appearing as the Cowardly Lion in his school’s production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’. At 16, Robert dropped out of school to study under famed coaches, Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg. Strasberg was also the head of the Actor’s Studio, which attracted many famous actors and aspiring ones, including De Niro.


De Niro had a modest start as an actor but later went on to become one of Hollywoodโ€™s most sought-after performers due to his hard work and determination. With his first film role in ‘The Wedding Party’, directed by Brian De Palma, he would soon land bigger roles that would ultimately lead to him being compared with legends like Marlon Brando and Al Pacino in terms of sheer talent.

De Niro first worked with director Martin Scorsese on 1973โ€™s ‘Mean Streets’ which marks the beginning of their highly-profitable creative collaboration that would span decades and result in some of both of their most excellent and iconic work. ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘The Godfather Part II’, ‘Raging Bull’ all are among the most memorable films he directed.

Film Success

De Niro is famous for his method acting approach to every role he has portrayed in his illustrious career. For his role as Travis Bickle in 1976โ€™s ‘Taxi Driver’, he drove taxis for weeks and watched the driversโ€™ behavior to understand the character precisely; for ‘The Godfather Part II’, he learned the Sicilian language; and finally, for his role in ‘Raging Bull,’ where he gained some serious muscle mass by putting on 60 pounds to accurately portray the over-the-hill prizefighter.

Throughout his film career, De Niro has received numerous plaudits for his work, including two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. De Niro has cemented himself a place above many other actors of his time. He is indeed one of the all-time great actors.

De Niro’s business empire has continuously generated a considerable amount of wealth, with the empire generating several hundred million dollars in revenue every year. In addition to this, film salaries and long-term contracts with production companies, studio residuals, and creative projects have been in abundance, keeping De Niroโ€™s bank balance healthy.
