Robert DeNiro is an acting legend, but apparently he doesn’t want to be asked any negative questions if you’re planning on interviewing him anytime soon. During a recent interview with the “Radio Times”, a reporter named Emma Brockes asked him some non-movie related questions and he wasn’t having any of it.
Brockes claimed that she asked De Niro about two topics that seemingly upset him. First, she questioned him about the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City, home to the famed film festival which he co-founded, asking if the area had been overrun by bankers. And secondly, she questioned if the Oscar winner ever gets into “autopilot” mode while on set.
De Niro then reportedly asked Brockes to turn off the recorder and began pacing “madly,” complaining about the tone of the interview.
“All the way through. Negative inference,” he said, according to Brockes. “The whole way through and I’m not doing it. I’m not doing it, darling.”
Do you think he was in the right for walking out? Or should he have stayed there, answered her questions and sucked it up?
