Biography

Robert De Niro studied acting at the Stella Adler Conservatory, as well as Lee Strasberg’s Actors Studio, and his first film role came at the age of 20, when he appeared in Brian De Palma’s 1963 film The Wedding Party.

His first major film roles were in the sports drama Bang the Drum Slowly (1973) and Martin Scorsese’s crime film Mean Streets (1973). In 1974, he was cast as the young Vito Corleone in The Godfather Part II, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

After working with Scorsese in Mean Streets, De Niro went on to have a successful working relationship with him in films such as Taxi Driver (1976), New York, New York (1977), Raging Bull (1980), The King of Comedy (1983), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991), and Casino (1995). They also acted together in Guilty by Suspicion (1991) and provided their voices for the animated feature Shark Tale (2004).

Robert De Niro The World's Greatest Actor

De Niro played Michael Vronsky in the acclaimed Vietnam War film The Deer Hunter (1978), for which he was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Fearing he had become typecast in mob roles, he began expanding into occasional comedic roles in the mid-1980s and has had much success there as well, with such films as Brazil (1985), Midnight Run (1988), Analyze This (1999), Meet the Parents (2000), and Meet the Fockers (2004).

At the 20th Moscow International Film Festival in 1997, he was awarded an Honorable Prize for contribution to cinema.

He starred in the police action-thriller Heat (1995), along with fellow actor and long-time friend, Al Pacino. The duo drew much attention from fans, as both have generally been compared throughout their careers.

De Niro’s capital ventures have included co-founding the film studio TriBeCa Productions, the Tribeca Film Festival, the restaurants Nobu and TriBeCa Grill (which he co-owns with Broadway producer Stewart F. Lane), The Greenwich Hotel (located in Tribeca), and the restaurant inside the hotel, Locanda Verde (run by executive chef and co-owner Andrew Carmellini).

Praised for his commitment to roles, stemming from his background in method acting, De Niro gained 60 lb (27 kg) and learned how to box for his role as Jake LaMotta in Raging Bull, ground his teeth for Cape Fear, lived in Sicily for The Godfather Part II, worked as a cab driver for a few weeks for Taxi Driver, and learned to play the saxophone for New York, New York.
