Legendary actor Robert De Niro portraed many iconic roles on screen and always seems open to taking on new ones. However, the “Godfather II” actor revealed that there is one role he would never play.
“You want to guess? I’ll give you one guess – no I’ll tell you. Donald Trump,” De Niro said when asked by an audience member about his roles on Saturday’s Tribeca Talk in New York City with fellow actor Bradley Cooper.
After answering the question, De Niro chuckled as the Tribeca Hub studio erupted and cheers and laugher. This isn’t the first time of late that De Niro has gotten political with his opinions and role choices. The star appeared on last week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” to portray Robert Mueller.
The 74-year-old actor sat down with the 43-year-old Cooper, to chat about their different experiences in the film industry and the dynamic they have created after working on four films – “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle,” “Joy” and “Limitless” – together.
