Favorite Niro Quotes

1. "Johnny had been on earth for thirty-four years. Less than a week ago, he walked on those streets. And now the cup, the ring and two unironed waiter's aprons at home were the only concrete objects left to connote that a man had once lived. There were no other physical reminders of Johnny, as he had been buried in all the clothes he owned with his studs and his fourteen-carat gold collar button."
Author: Betty Smith
2. "The hardest achievement in acting - in my opinion, anyway - is nailing a role that absolutely nobody else could have played. Pacino owned Michael Corleone... but DeNiro could have owned it as well. Who else, though, but Val Kilmer could have nailed Jim Morrison? Does anyone besides Will Ferrell pull off Ron Burgundy?"
Author: Bill Simmons
3. "Nobody is more truthful when he's acting than De Niro."
Author: Billy Crystal
4. "I'd been traveling in Asia long enough to know that monkeys there are nothing like their trombone-playing, tambourine-banging cousins I'd seen on TV as a kid. Free-living Asian primates possess a characteristic I found shocking and confusing the first time I saw it: self-respect. If you make the mistake of holding the gaze of a street monkey in India, Nepal, or Malaysia, you'll find you're facing a belligerently intelligent creature whose expression says, with a Robert DeNiro–like scowl, "What the hell are you looking at? You wanna piece of me?" Forget about putting one of these guys in a little red vest."
Author: Christopher Ryan
5. "It may be a mistake to say this, but I know my limitations as an actor and I know what I can and can not do. Robert De Niro can do everything. I can't. A 'Highlander' movie is basically my thing. What I'm attempting to do is develop my ability as an actor and try to be the best I can be in the fantasy/action genre."
Author: Christopher Lambert
6. "And to think, she'd once had the hots for him, back in the old days (six months ago) when razor-thin men with noses like Durante and an encyclopaedic knowledge of de Niro movies had really been her style. Now she saw him for what he was, flotsam from a lost ship of hope. Still a pill-freak, still a theoretical bisexual, still devoted to early Polanski movies and symbolic pacifism."
Author: Clive Barker
7. "I don't think more concentration is required for Robert De Niro to do what he does as for Jim Carrey to do what he does."
Author: Eddie Murphy
8. "The Heart-mantra of Dependent Origination (rten-'brel snying-po [??????????????????]), which liberates the enduring continuum of phenomena and induces the appearance of multiplying relics ('phel-gdung [??????????] and rainbow lights, is:[O?] YE DHARMA HETUPRABHAVAHETUN TE?A? TATHAGATOHY AVADAT TE?A? CA YONIRODHO EVA? VADIMAHASRAMA?A? [YE SVAHA]('Whatever events arise from a cause, the Tathagata [Buddha, "Thus-gone"] has told the cause thereof, and the great virtuous ascetic has taught their cessation as well [so be it]')."
Author: Graham Coleman
9. "There are a lot of actors whom I love, who personalize their work. I want to know everything about them, like De Niro, like Gary Oldman."
Author: Kevin Corrigan
10. "I saw 'Taxi Driver,' and 'Taxi Driver' kind of saved my life. The scene where Robert De Niro is looking at himself in the mirror saying, 'You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Who the hell else are you talkin' to?' That's the scene that changed my life by changing my attitude about acting."
Author: Michael Biehn
11. "'Taxi Driver' is a movie that changed my life and made me a serious actor. Scorsese and De Niro. I give credit for anything that I've ever done as an actor."
Author: Michael Biehn
12. "If you are handed something, it's a blessing and a curse. Look at hip hop artists, they produced everything themselves. Even people like Robert De Niro are getting into production. Again, it's art vs. marketing. Not everyone can take the risk. You have to break a few eggs to make a good omelet."
Author: Michael Winslow
13. "Robert DeNiro, who may be the greatest living actor, usually acts in a way which is very stone-faced, like Steve McQueen."
Author: Michel Hazanavicius
14. "There was, he thought, an emotional truth here somewhere, and he could see now that his role-playing had a previously unsuspected artistic element to it. He was acting, yes, but in the noblest, most profound sense of the word. He wasn't a fraud. He was Robert De Niro."
Author: Nick Hornby
15. "When I came up, guys like Nicholson and DeNiro were held in highest regard."
Author: Peter Gallagher
16. "I like people like Robert De Niro and Anthony Hopkins. And Gianfranco Zola, who played for Chelsea and Italy. He's an artist with his feet."
Author: Phil Daniels
17. "I want to be the Bob DeNiro of the Jurassic."
Author: Robert T. Bakker
18. "They were unironic enthusiasts for all the mass pleasures the culture offered: television, NASCAR, cruises, Disney World, sports, celebrity gossip, and local politics. Szabo often wished that he could be as well adjusted as Melinda's family, but he would have had to be medicated to pursue her list of pleasures."
Author: Thomas McGuane
19. "Best ever was filming in Barcelona last year, and I had a couple of scenes with De Niro. He's a very shy man. Speaks so quietly that people tend to bend down and adopt the same tone, almost the same voice, whenever they talk to him - watching, you'd think someone's offering to carry out a hit for him when they're just offering him a cup of coffee."
Author: Toby Jones
20. "Take characters that Nicholson or De Niro play: they're not always tough."
Author: Tom Berenger
21. "Like De Niro. He's one of the best character actors we have ever had."
Author: Vincent D'Onofrio
22. "I was pretty nervous when I met Robert DeNiro. I kind of felt like a kid in a candy store for the first time. I couldn't wipe the grin off of my face. But Bobby DeNiro was really, really sweet and made me feel very comfortable. He's very low-key and just a superstar professional, and totally someone to be admired."
Author: Yvonne Strahovski

I think people just think I am crazy because they see me doing stand-up, but I am generally not. I am very sad. I'm one of those guys that lights candles and listens to Rachmaninoff."
