No, of course he wasn't. That didn't stop Gregg from joking about it though.
The photo went up on Gregg's wall on Monday (Jan. 20) with the caption: "The great De Niro shows us sick score on candy crush." Although the rest of the world can't see what's on De Niro's phone, Gregg and Grey are clearly impressed.
Alas, their awe has nothing to do with De Niro getting to level 500 or something on the addictive Internet game. Instead, as Gregg clarified in a comment a few hours later: "I'm kidding. It was a picture of his beautiful kid."
That makes more sense -- even if we all know De Niro would kill it at Candy Crush. »
"Marvel's Agents of Shield" are a team both on and off screen. The self-described BFFs are always game to get each others' backs, even if it means spending some quality time with their other cast members' family members.
That happened this past weekend when Clark Gregg and wife Jennifer Grey attended the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Their daughter Stella's school play was the same night, and both parents had to miss it.
#SAGAwards yesterday, so missed a perf of my daughter's school play, so @ChloeBennet4 & @Lil_Henstridge filled in. #Speechless

Lee and Casey have recently made amends after tensions between them grew following their love triangle with evicted housemate Jasmine Waltz.

Los Angeles, Jan 18: Actor Johnny Depp is said to have popped the question to his girlfriend and "The Rum Diary" co-star Amber Heard "a while ago". His ladylove was recently spotted wearing a huge sparkler on her ring finger.

With Paradis, he has two children - Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11.

Housekeeper Alice did most of the cooking for "The Brady Bunch," but that didn't mean Mrs. Brady couldn't be handy in the kitchen, too.
