Despite being famous for more than forty years, Academy Award winner Robert DeNiro has never been particularly open about his personal life. He hasn’t been a weirdo recluse either, but as huge celebrities go, we don’t know a whole lot about him. For example: his father, Robert DeNiro Sr, was apparently a gay artist.
DeNiro’s father never hid who he was or who he loved, but the actor hasn’t really talked extensively about his old man on the record. That changed during an interview with Out Magazine this week in which the legendary tough guy opened up and talked extensively about his father’s genius and his internal conflict over his profession and sexual orientation.
It’ll change moving forward too because Robert DeNiro has commissioned a documentary about his father entitled Remembering The Artist. It will tackle his father’s work, the strange but loving relationship the two men shared and more about his life. You can check out the trailer below…
Enthusiastic about Clue, case-of-the-week mysteries, the NBA and cookies at Disney World. Less enthusiastic about the pricing structure of cable, loud noises and Tuesdays.
