Media outlets are reporting that actor Robert De Niro “crashed a random” World Cup party in Brooklyn last week to watch the US/Germany game. But that’s not accurate. While filming on location for The Intern, De Niro simply went to the green room (in a nearby apartment building in which the production company was renting). While in the hallways of the building, De Niro stopped to speak with residents who invited him to watch in their apartment.
The $35 million comedy, The Intern (starring Anne Hathaway, a fashion editor who hires the 70-year-old De Niro as her intern), will be in theaters in September 2015.
