The Hollywood actor said about his friend, the film Director in an exclusive interview with People.
This tandem — a rare example of strong male friendship and creative Union. For the last several decades, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese has created a stunning masterwork. They first teamed up to work on the drama on the manners of the new York quarter, “Little Italy” called “mean streets” (Mean Streets) in 1973 and did not yet know that one meeting will be the beginning of their friendship for life.
I consider myself incredibly lucky that we had a strong and long relationship. I can’t imagine life without him
— said Hollywood actor about the Director in an interview with People.
Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro
For 40 years, they had the opportunity to work together on nine tapes: including “Taxi driver” (Taxi Driver) 1976, “raging bull” (Raging Bull) in 1980, all parts of “the Godfather” (Goodfellas) 1972, 1974 and 1990 respectively, and “Casino” (Casino) 1995. Their latest creative work — drama “the Irishman” (The Irishman), which this year 10 times nominated for “Oscar”and 4 times for a screen actors Guild award nomination.
Shooting of this movie became very special experience for us. And no matter how many prizes we get. These figurines, in our opinion, as the icing on the cake: a nice addition, but don’t change the taste of the cake.
Also Robert De Niro expressed his admiration for the talent of the other:
Marty is very sensitive to actors and people in General. He takes what he is offered, the actors, and uses it in the best light. He loves to learn new things, read, watch, listen. Directors must be diverse and grow in many areas of life. Marty really like this and it is great.
