Robert De Niro talks about gay father

May 27 2014, 5:22pm CDT | by

Robert De Niro wishes he had spoken more with his late gay father about his sexuality.

The 'Meet the Parents' actor's dad - Robert De Niro Sr., a famous figurative painter - separated from his mother, Virginia Admiral, shortly after his birth in 1943 to live as an openly gay man, and the star wishes he had been able to communicate with him about it more openly.

He told OUT Magazine: "To me, he was always a great artist. Yeah, he probably was [conflicted about being gay], being from that generation, especially from a small town [Syracuse, in] upstate [New York].

"I was not aware, much, of it. I wish we had spoken about it much more. My mother didn't want to talk about things in general, and you're not interested when you're a certain age."

Robert, 70, has directed a new documentary about his father, who passed away in 1993, for HBO called 'Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro, Sr.', and says while they didn't have a typical father to son relationship, they were still close.

He added: "We were not the type of father and son who played baseball together, as you can surmise. But we had a connection.

"I wasn't with him a lot, because my mother and he were separated and divorced. As I say in the documentary, I looked after him in certain ways.

"He was absent in some ways. He was very loving. He adored me ... as I do my kids."

Robert also talked about how making the documentary was a labour of love.

He said: "I felt I had to. I felt obligated. It was my responsibility to make a documentary about him... It was not intended to be on HBO. It was just something I wanted to do."

We recently learned that Robin Williams was battling Parkinson’s disease, but that apparently isn’t the main thing that drove him to his tragic suicide. According to a new report, it was the cancellation of his TV show The Crazy Ones. It lasted only one season before getting the axe and the actor saw it as a “personal failure.” Williams reportedly told one person before the show started: "My face is all over town [on billboards] and it's all on my back." So, that’s wh ...

(Getty Images) According to Robert Pattinson himself, he’s a “bullsh*t artist” — at least when it comes to trying to score a movie role. “I’m quite good at doing meetings. If I’m just meeting someone about a job I’m like a dog, especially if my agent’s said to me: ‘A lot of people want this job.’ Then I’m like: ‘Oh yeah? Then I will do anything to get it!’” he shares in a new interview with The Guardian. Pattinson continues, “I don’t k ...

Miley Cyrus threw a hotel fit & screamed ‘that they should be glad to have her’

Aug 14 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I recently opened a ghost Instagram account to make it easier to track celebrities’ ongoing antics. For work! The experience has been interesting with one drawback: Miley Cyrus has been spamming up my feed, y’all. I swear she posts more than anyone else that I follow. Some celebs post a couple of photos per month. It feels like Miley posts a couple times an hour. She has wayyy too much time on her hands, even when she’s touring. A new story from this week’s Life & Style is pulling the “out ...
