One doesn’t simply ask about Rober DeNiro and not expect, “Are you talking to me?”.
The Taxi Driver star is the actor of his generation. Aspiring actors study the universally lauded artist, and he is on the wishlist for every director.
He used his platform to advocate for his political leanings. During the SAG Awards, he was the 56th recipient of the guild’s highest honor and used his recipient speech to criticize the 2020 administration.
“There’s right and there’s wrong, and there’s common sense, and there’s abuse of power. As a citizen, I have as much right as anybody — an actor, an athlete, anybody else — to voice my opinion. And if I have a bigger voice because of my situation, I’m going to use it whenever I see a blatant abuse of power.”
A roaring applause filled the room for his courage to speak up in the current political environment.
Gen Z is not only familiar with his name but also follows his inspiring and authentic journey as an actor as their motivation to keep pursuing.
