DIANE Keaton has revealed she used to feel intimidated by Robert De Niro.
The actress stars alongside De Niro in new movie The Big Wedding — and and while they are close now, Keaton admits she was quite wary of him when they first worked together many years ago.
“Mr. Robert De Niro. My god. A legend and also a dear man,” she said. “He’s very kind. It’s like, oh, he’s so kind. Why is he so kind? And he’s quiet. But he’s a lovely man. I really like him. He loves his family. You don’t think of him that way when you only know him from a distance.
“I did a movie with him called Marvin’s Room a long time ago, but he was a producer. I didn’t really know him and he was intimidating to me. But things change.”
“The kind of music I listen to is when I’m walking, because I walk all over the neighborhoods of Los Angeles. How else am I going to see it? If I don’t drive, I take the dog and I listen to something. Right now I love the new Frank Ocean CD, Channel Orange. It’s just amazing music.
“I also like the Jay-Z album with Kanye West. The last one — The Throne album. I just think that’s so astonishingly beautiful, the way they orchestrate it. That’s how I got to know who Frank Ocean was. Frank Ocean sang on one of the cuts. He [is] very orchestral in a weird way.”
