Indeed, there is no one like Robert De Niro. His films such as Taxi Driver, The Irishman, Cape Fear, and The Godfather shaped the film industry that we know and love today.
Many talented directors, actors, and writers use Bobby as an inspiration in hopes that they, too, become as successful as he and his projects.
But while most actors his age have gone into retirement, Robert is surprisingly still in the game – and he’s doing quite well, actually. That is why until now, the actor is still gaining more fans along the way.
If you’re one of them and would like to know more about Robert De Niro, keep reading because we’ll be giving you everything you need to know about his age, height, kids, and net worth.
How Old is Robert De Niro?
Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. was born on August 17, 1943 – back when Nazis still terrorized the entire world and when World War II was just at the doorstep of its long-awaited finale. At the time of this writing, Bobby is 79 years old.
As mentioned before, Robert has not retired from acting just yet. In fact, we’ll still be seeing him on the big screen for the next years to come. In an interview with Yahoo, Robert said: “I’ll go as long as I can.”
Unfortunately, there might be a dark reason as to why Bobby refuses to retire soon. According to his divorce lawyer, Caroline Krauss, his ex-wife’s luxurious lifestyle has forced Robert to accept an unhealthy number of projects just to satisfy her materialistic needs. She said:
“Mr. De Niro is 77 years old, and while he loves his craft, he should not be forced to work at this prodigious pace because he has to. When does that stop? When does he get the opportunity to not take every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep pace with Ms. Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?”
Of course, we’re not saying that the statement above is absolutely true. However, we do hope that Robert is acting for the fun of it and not just because he’s forced to. He is, after all, almost in his eighties! The guy needs to take it slow.
