Did You Know?
It's true: I spent lunchtime in a grave during the filming of Bloody Mama
(1970). When you're younger, you feel that's what you need to do to help you stay in character. When you get older, you become more confident and less intense about it -- and you can achieve the same effect. You might even be able to achieve more if you take your mind off it, because you're relaxed. That's the key to it all...
When they met shortly before making Mean Streets
(1973) De Niro and Harvey Keitel
became fast friends. De Niro was from Greenwich Village in Manhattan and was taught by Stella Adler
and Keitel was from the Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn and was mainly mentored by Lee Strasberg
. But the two guarded actors bonded and remain close to this day.
Often played characters that were prone to brutal violence and/or characters who were borderline psychotics.
