Robert De Niro Explains Why He Rocks Giant Platform Shoes in The Irishman


-Welcome back to the show. I appreciate you
coming back here. You were my first guest ever in my whole experience
being a talk show host. -Yes.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ] That was supposed — Most of your answers
were one-word answers, yeah. But I remember,
I was so nervous. Thank you again.
I’ll never forget it. Thank you for doing that. And I was so nervous. I was talking to your publicist
or something. He said, “Bob wants to see
the questions.” First of all,
I can’t even call you Bob because I was so nervous. And I go, “Okay, whatever.” He wants to see the questions
before you ask on the show. I said, “Okay.”
Here’s his e-mail address. And they had some — probably
some dummy e-mail address you don’t use anymore.
Anyways, I was so nervous. I sent the questions,
like 15 questions to you, and you go, “Pretty good.” [ Laughter ] “What else have you got?” I go, “Uh, okay.” So I wrote up
another 15 questions or something like that. I’m sweating.
This is how hard it is. I sent it to you
and you go, “It’s okay.” [ Laughter ] “Getting closer.
What else have you got?” And I go, “Oh, my goodness.” Now my questions
are getting bizarre. And as I’m typing, I got
an e-mail from you that go, “Ha ha, just kidding.
See you on the show.” [ Cheers and applause ] You totally got me.
My first ever guest. Oh, gosh. Thank you for doing the bit
today with the dog. I love seeing you do comedy. You were great on “Saturday
Night Live” this past weekend. -Oh, thanks.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Was it fun teaming up
with Ben Stiller again? -Yeah, it was great.
We had a good time. -Are there talk about another
“Meet the Parents” maybe? -I don’t know. That’s a good question. I don’t know at this point. -We would be into it. [ Cheers and applause ] You guys have great chemistry. It was good to see
the lie detector scene. It was great. Speaking of good chemistry,
you guys always work together. Everyone’s eyes are on
this new movie coming out you have called “The Irishman.”
-Yeah. -Now, that is directed by
Martin Scorsese. -Yes. -And it’s you
and it’s Al Pacino and it’s Harvey Keitel
and it’s Joe Pesci. [ Cheers and applause ]
What?! I mean, I’m so excited about it. There’s been a couple of photos leaked about you guys
filming scenes. And there was something about
you and Al Pacino’s feet that people were obsessed with.
-Yes, yes. -Do you know what
I’m talking about? -Yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely. -There’s a photo of you
on the street. Can you explain what’s going on? This is — Zoom in.
[ Laughter ] First of all,
I don’t understand this at all. If you told me that was a
Jerry Lewis movie, I’d go okay. But then,
what is happening here? -Well, those are kind of things
we made to give me a few more inches
in height, because the guy was actually
much taller than — not much. Yeah, he was about five,
six inches taller than me. -Yeah. -And so just to show the
relation to any of the actors or characters
that I’m heavy — taller. So that’s what we used. When we had a wide shot, that wasn’t the shot
we were shooting. -The camera would cut that off.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. What’s happening with Al’s feet? Was it just an odd pose? -I don’t know.
-Yeah, okay, yeah, yeah, yeah. [ Laughter ] Let’s talk about
the Tribeca Film Festival. Congratulations. 17 years.
-Yeah, 17 years. -Holy moley.
[ Cheers and applause ] Ah, but it’s — I was there,
the first one, and every single year, it’s just grown and grown
and gotten bigger. Last year, you set records
for attendance. I mean, it’s a giant, giant
festival now. -Yeah, no, and we’re very happy
that it’s doing so well. It’s doing even better this
year, the way I understand it. And hopefully it will be
part of the fabric of New York for decades to come. And as long as the city is here,
the festival will be here. -Yeah. People will — Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] I love that. The opening movie is a
documentary about Gilda Radner. -Yes, yes.
-Which I’m very excited about. You always kind of like
to launch new directors. I appreciate that as a fan. -And we have 46% of the films
are done by women this year. -Oh, is that right?
[ Cheers and applause ] That’s fantastic. Did you ever meet Gilda Radner? -I did. I spent a night with her
after the show, “SNL.” Must have been 30 years ago. -Is that right? We went to her apartment with
some friends, we go, hung out together. -I just heard the best stuff. Everyone said she’s so charming. You just want to hang out
with her, like, just fall immediately
in love with her. But — So, the festival,
when you first started, it was all movies. Now you branch out and you do
TV shows, TV debut. It’s a big deal. I know Ralph Macchio’s
Karate Kid TV show “Cobra Kai” is coming up.
-Yes. -I cannot wait for that thing. Ralph is coming on Friday. If you haven’t seen
“The Karate Kid” — Anyways, Daniel starts his own
dojo up against John. Anyway, you’ll see it. [ Laughter ] But that’s debuting
during the festival. You also do — Remember you were
here once, you had an AI thing, or, you had a computer
virtual reality thing that you were doing.
-Yes, yes. -You were in a prison.
-Yes. -And this year,
you’re doing video games. -Yes. -So, “God of War”
is going to debut, which is going to be
a giant, giant — [ Laughter ] Trust me. That’s going to be
a giant video game. Do you play video games?
-No. -Have you ever played
video games? -Pacman. That was it. [ Laughter and applause ] -Yeah. That’s a great one to play
if you’re going to play one. [ Laughter ] You’re closing the festival with the movie called
“The Fourth Estate.” -Yes.
-What is that film about? -That’s about — It basically,
it was certain writers in “The New York Times” and about how they deal on
a daily basis with stories. Today it’s the administration,
a lot of the stories, and how to get it right, especially with what
the administration will call fake news
whenever they get a chance. So it’s a necessary movie
to see. It’s one of four parts. And it’s closing the festival, which feels like
the right thing. -Absolutely.
[ Applause ] Well I can’t congratulate you
enough on everything. Thank you for doing this. If you’re in New York, go to
the Tribeca Film Festival. If you are traveling or want to
come, come this Wednesday. Starting Wednesday,
you’ll have so much fun. It’s great. The legendary Robert De Niro
right there.

  • Jimmy is really awkward on this interview

  • Robert De Niro is everyones favourite uncle who's been around your entire life through the good and bad, who is super cool, rich af and occaisionally visits the house and tells you the best ever life stories.

  • God of war tv series or what? 😬 wow time to google that! Games are epic

  • Fallon is no Carson

  • Who stumbled on this after Sebastian Menascalco’s Rogan episode?

  • Bobby DeNiro F… You, you POS

  • Jimmy is nervous now. I wish Joe Pesci would come out and say, You mumbling, studdering prick you. You might fold under questioning.

  • Fallon's delivery gives me agita.

  • Jimmy Fallon= Cringe.

  • The best all time male actor in this world. I would like to met him. Just to say high.

  • Old flop

  • He came and went…he,s not clint

  • Thank God Al, Joe and Harvey are in movie to do heavy lifting for babbling Duh Nero, or Irishman would tank. Bob can barely speak anymore, hydraulic shoes are for shrimp Duh-nero. Made classic films in old days, old Bob is chump now. Now he makes dud bombs like dumb Comedian movie he sucked in, no reason to release that dud.

  • He definitely didn't waste his talent…

    Props to whoever got the reference.

  • Fuck I am so excited for this film. Scorsese has never disappointed.

  • Only respect for this man

  • this cured my depression

  • I feel like DeNiro prefers to interview with Fallon because he does most of the talking lol

  • How does this stuttering idiot have his own talk show?
    America is a weird place.

  • no please no more meet the whatevers not one has been anything but trash

  • "we have 46% movies done by woman" buuuut are they good tho… xD

  • Another comatose De Niro interview? "The Irishman" must 'not' be coming out soon.

  • Like you message. The guy below

  • Saw the movie the comedian with Dinero. If it was not for him, movie would have stunk

  • Jimmy: "Those shoes…"
    Robert: "You talkin' to me?… Fuckin' Shitheel."

  • He still are at risk of strange correspondence. He jumped himself as anarchist, but…

  • he’s wearing a creepers shoes. funny!

  • i like how he makes up these stories

  • Look forward to the Irishman coming out. DeNiro is a great actor and love many of his films. But please no more Meet the Parents sequels. The first film was enough on its own.

  • Because Frank Sheeran was 6.4” beast of a mob hitman.
    De Niro is barely 5.10.

  • Looking forward to The Irishman…………………….with Scorsese directing and all those big names, should be great!  Just hoping that it won't be a disappointment like The Departed was.  (I know some people loved that movie, but it just didn't "do it" for me).

  • Deniro why are you so sad

  • Who stars as the Irishman?

  • OH Bob you so inclusive!!!!! FU De Niro POS 🖕🏼😬🖕🏼

  • When Jimmy gets certain guests like DeNiro or Steve Martin he keeps telling them how great they are and thanking them for being there. Relax, Jimmy! You got the job, stop sucking up.

  • For a talk show host i don't think it's very nice to expose to the public that your guest asked you for the questions before he came. That makes him look kinda bad and the whole interview staged.

  • How can this anti-American asshole De Niro be taken seriously?

  • Nanana u insulted him a lil bit

  • It's because he's a little man in terms of both honor and height. A small man.

  • Because he is a stupid little fuck??

  • Yes, he is notorious for being a bad tempered miserable prick. He hates interviewers and reporters. God knows why he ever agrees to be questioned at all.

  • Good actor but dumb liberal.

  • Fuck deniro

  • No one died

  • Why is Bobby so vocal about his hate for Trump? Hmmm….wonder if there more to this than meets the eye?

  • Punchy deniro's father should have shot that load in his boyfriend's ass

  • Jimmy is so fake it's not even funny.

  • DENIRO IS NOT EVEN A FOOTNOTE ANYMORE,,, JUST AS A FADING PHOTO… HE SHALL BE GONE… A SAD ANTI-PATRIOT…. JUST WATCH….. PEACE YA'LL

  • TRUMP HAS ALREADY PUNCHED BOBBY IN THE MOUTH…… AND NO COUNTER…. mmmm

  • ALL HIS MOVIES ARE ABOUT RUNNING EVERYONE OVER… KILLING, EXTORTION, BLACKMAIL, ETC: ….. FOR 40 YEARS…. LOOK IT UP !

  • I cannot wait for this fucking film.

  • Jimmy interviewing Jimmy here

  • Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino, Pesci, Keitel. Holy shit this movie is going to be incredible. I mean the last time De Niro and Pesci were in a movie together this happened: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibl4dps3hSg&t=68

  • Crazy old man.

  • To be honest, Al Pacino's still greater than Robert De Niro. Without doubt.

  • Hi..Robert de Niro..my fave. Only last night ive watched mr. Al Pacino's wonderful performances too. And I had a crush on you sir Robert de niro. I have deactivated my one account that filled of your images sir.

  • DeNiro without a script is a retard

  • I Love Robert De Niro❤️❤️

  • Fake De Niro gay father and black wife. Fake you Italian Catholic fake

  • The trailer brought me here.

  • It's so painful to watch Jimmy do interviews. He's just great doing sketches but that's it. Conan is still be far the best.

  • One of the greatest actor of all time. Top 3

  • I'm so hyped for this movie, old school..I grew up with these legends in 1980's & 1990's. They are legit REAL stars and icons and legends. So excited to see Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, holy shit…A real star studded movie, 3 actors who are part of the worlds greatest gangster/Mafia movies.

  • Fallon is more like a crazed fan than a professional interviewer – which makes him adorable!!
