  • ROBERT DE NIRO

    August 17, 1943
    New York, New York

          Robert De Niro parents, Virginia Admiral, a painter, and father Robert, a painter, sculptor, and poet, gave him a lot of freedom growing up in the Little Italy neighborhood of Lower Manhattan. He was a shy boy who prefered reading over playmates, and at the age of ten he worked at overcoming his shyness by gaining a part in a school play. Although having had a taste of the thespian life, when his teens arrived Robert found himself hanging out on the streets, where he whiled away his time with a small-time gang. But his artistic blood called him back, and once again he set his sights on acting. Turning his back on the streets, Robert honed his skills at the Actor's Studio under the instruction of Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg.
          His first paycheck came at sixteen with a touring performance in Chekhov's The Bear. From there, De Niro embarked on a fifteen year tour through dinner theatres, off-Broadway stages and low budget features.
          As fate would have it, his neighborhood's proximity to the prestigious NYU Film School brought him in contact with future directing greats, Martin Scorcese and Brian De Palma. De Palma's 1968 Greetings and Hi, Mom! in 1970 featured De Niro, but it wasn't until Scorcese's 1973 Mean Streets that De Niro really broke through. Playing the maniacal Johnny Boy got De Niro noticed by Francis Ford Coppola, who cast him as the young Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Part II. It was a part that won De Niro rave reviews and established him as one of the most skilled film actors of his generation.
