Robert De Niro Crashes A World Cup Party & Tries To Outdo the Master Bill Murray
Do we now live in a world where any aging actor can just, like, come chill with you at any moment? Please tell me we live in that world. It might get sketch if it's, like, Mel Gibson, but if Meryl Streep wants to swing by my apartment and give me advice on how to be perfect forever I would be very pleased. And we must live in that kind of world at least part time, because Robert De Niro crashed a World Cup viewing party and it was glorious.
De Niro's been hanging in Brooklyn as of late filming The Intern, but even a seasoned movie star's gotta take some time out to cheer for his team come World Cup time, so some Warner Bros. PA was tasked with finding De Niro a place to watch the game. And so some people in the Cobble Hill neighborhood got an email that contained the following message:
Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12 p.m. Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?
According to Business Insider, who spoke to someone in the building that got the message, one of the neighbors was told that De Niro ended up joining a house of people watching.
Seriously, though, guys, what do we gotta do to get in on this wandering movie star hangout time? Bill Murray's crashing bachelor parties and photobombing people's engagement photos! Robert De Niro's walking into people's houses to watch the World Cup! Amy Poehler should definitely marathon Orphan Black with me, is all I'm saying.
