When it comes to the World Cup, Robert De Niro is a serious dude. He’s currently in New York City filming a movie called The Intern, but apparently his hotel didn’t have a television and no one had an iPad, because he was desperately looking for a place to watch the game in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighbourhood.
Apparently Warner Bros. emailed a random apartment building asking if DeNiro could watch the game anywhere, and he actually just showed up randomly to someone’s apartment to catch it in the end.
From Business Insider:
The neighbor told Business Insider their apartment building got an email from Warner Bros. asking if they could help De Niro see the game.
“Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12p,” the email said. “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 the neighbor, De Niro apparently ended up getting invited to a nearby house where people were watching the game.
“We got another email from a neighbor saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them,” the neighbor said.
That’s cool, I guess – De Niro is legendary – but he’s kinda stealing Bill Murray‘s thing of crashing parties, isn’t he?
