The fuck was he thinking by agreeing to be in this?
This man was in Taxi Driver
The greatest actors of all time all stopped giving a shit in their later lives, no exception
Find me a truly great actor who avoided shlock for their entire career, especially towards the end
I think its related somehow, being a great and not giving a shit. Except for DDL. But he's literally autistic so it doesn't count.
The fuck was he thinking by agreeing to be payed millions of dollars to do what he loves?
Seriously, he's obviously having fun with what life he has left in him. Also aging actors usually take roles with less "artistic integrity" (what the fuck does that even mean anymore?) to have plenty of money to leave for their families.
>>I think its related somehow, being a great and not giving a shit
when you grow old, you understand that the entertainment industry is not a life whereas you only speak to these people on a daily basis. so you stop caring about people you do not care about.
and there are no alphas in Hollywood, there are only chads and robots.
All these people moaning at a guy having fun
>Not giving a shit = starring in shit like The Intern and Dirty Grandpa
de niros body was WAY better
that's like 2% body fat in that picture
you have to realize at that point in their life, everything you hate could be what some kids in the coming generations might love. and as a person who could drop dead anyday, they just want to spread their existence as far as they can. the children of the future aren't going to say "this guy was taxi driver, what the fuck is this shit"
>that's like 2% body fat in that picture
Single digit maybe, but nobody except for a few bodybuilders who are genetic freaks actually get down that low
This was Gene Hackman's last film before he retired.
Sean Connery was so pissed off with how shitty The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen he retired from acting altogether and told the director YOU'RE THE MAN WHO MADE SEAN CONNERY QUIT ACTING.
He only took on the role because he turned down the role of Gandalf in LOTR because he didn't enjoy the script so when he didn't enjoy the script of the League he figured he better give it a go.

But the problem is, that doesn't mean it's good. I was born in 94 so De Niro wasn't the guy from Taxi Driver or Raging Bull for me growing up, he was the dad from Meet the parents. That doesn't mean that thats who we should remember him as.
de Niro's reputation is set in stone, he could literally make a movie where he and Adam Sandler are trannies in love and he'd still have a solid reputation. Look at the amount of shit Ben Kingsley's been in and the respect he still gets.
he looks pretty fit for being eleven thousand years old.
He's having fun at the end of a long career and just takes whatever looks like it would be a good time.
Even his crap movies are watchable too.
>avoided shlock for their entire career
Dude the lowest I've heard a bodybuilder getting down to was 4% and he only did it for an hour or two and he made de Niro in that pic look like a fat ass.
No idea where you got 2% from, more like 9%
I'd rather megan's curtains any day of the week
Clint Eastwood avoids schlock intentionally, but the problem is is that in his movies, sometimes, while trying with all his full effort, he is a bad actor, or a bad writer, or a bad director, or a bad X. He, for all his grandeur, is hit and miss, and he's had enough misses that it's a little embarassing to group him in with the tippy top tier. I still like him though.
He's my favourite actor but he never gave a shit throughout his entire career. By the end he was in it strictly for the pay cheque. He even unashamedly portayed an older, fatter Vito Corleone in a completely unrelated film. Admittedly was kinda cool to see what Don Corleone would end up like if he ate himself near to death and sold endangered species at auction for rich people to eat, but it's a lazy move from him.
Appearing in unsuccessful movies is not the same thing as appearing in 10 "summer romps" in a row without doing anything good in years or giving any shit about acting
Gotta eat big to get big, come on!
Why do people keep posting Brando? Just because he continued to be brilliant doesn't mean he gave a fuck. He literally accepted roles without reading the script. He showed up to filming without having read the script. Dialogue was written on cue cards for him on the day and he just ignored it and did whatever the fuck he felt like. Brando called acting "a bum's profession."
>tfw you will never be talented enough to be in the elite tier of your profession yet totally dismissive of it
>she sucked and licked on Deniros nipples because the director told her to
>Deniro freaked the fuck out and the director told her he has sensitive nipples
>Couldn't accept his Oscar because at the time he was busy filming this turd
Here's someone who objectively went out of his way to avoid fucking up: Cary Grant.
He quit way before his time and he literally said it was because he knew his image would be tarnished if he kept going until the day he died. Source shouldn't be hard to find on google.
DeVito these days is more of a producer, behind-scenes guy than an actual actor anyway.
It's nice to see him in front of camera, but I'm still not watching Always Sunny. Holy shit, that show is bad. Not BBT-level, but still seriously shitty.
That was a totally different era anyways.
Grant's early career was totally dictated by the studios, even if he had wanted to make calls he couldn't.
Probably a factor in his retirement, business went harder to predict and if you have enough dosh to live out on... why the fuck not?
More of a huge cunt.
Not giving a fuck is one thing.
Actively harming production and causing problems to other people with your bullshit is totally another.
Island of Moreau stories are funny to read, but if you were there..? I imagine I would've wanted to kill the fat fuck.
Deniro was to be the lead in HBO's upcoming miniseries "Criminal Justice" (based on the acclaimed BBC miniseries, and written by Richard fucking Price) taking over for Gandolfini after he died but he dropped out because of a scheduling conflict.
Do you want to know what the conflict was?
This is like your dad doing odd jobs or easy work in his old field after retirement for a bit of fun and spending money.
He's 72 years old. He really doesn't need give a shit anymore.
It's nice to see him put in effort occasionally like in Silver Linings, but honestly I think it's all just relaxing from here on out.
He spent nearly his entire career not giving a fuck.
It's interesting you bring him up though, because he talks about this on the freshly uploaded Hollywood Reporter roundtable.
Him and Sam Jackson (also someone who does mounds of shit) talk about how you should just fucking do anything and everything, because you get paid and you get experience. He mentioned he was friends with a really good stage actor, who only ever wanted to star in important films from big directors. The problem was that he would get on set and be out of his element, because he did it so rarely, and never delivered a great performance.
>muh beautiful artist
He probably doesn't give a shit. He's a making a fortune to leave for his huge family and these scripts probably take 10 minutes a day for him to glance at and have the lines memorized.
He's got nothing left to prove and is cashing checks. Maybe he has an impending lawsuit from Hot Cosbying chicks in the 70s and 80s so he's banking cash or something
>Dirty Grandpa cancels out his performance in Taxi Driver!
This poor Bastards ex-wife took all his cash so he had to the same at an even older age
>based pasta sauce
Still not as bad as Ric Flair.
Poor (literal) bastard has gotten married and divorced so much 99% of everything he's ever earned or owned belongs to one of his exwives.
He's pretty much resigned himself to working until the day he dies just so he has enough money to live day by day.
