Alain Delon

Alain Delon (born November 8, 1935) is a French actor, one of the best known outside his native country.

Delon was born in Sceaux, France. His breakthrough as a film star came with Plein Soleil, a 1962 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr Ripley. He also gave tremendous performances in Lucino Visconti's "The Leopard" and, perhaps his finest moment, "Le Samourai". His later work has not reached these hights, and his decline is characteristic of the nouvelle vague of French actors, such as Jean-Paul Belmondo.

After a string of box office disasters in the 1980s and 1990s, culminating in the unexpected failure of Patrice Leconte's film Une Chance sur deux, Alain Delon announced his decision to give up acting in 1997. In 1969, Delon and his wife were at the center of a massive scandal when their bodyguard was found shot dead in a garbage dump.

In 1969, Delon and his wife were at the center of a massive scandal when their bodyguard was found shot dead in a garbage dump. In 2004 De Niro re-married his wife Grace Hightower. After a string of box office disasters in the 1980s and 1990s, culminating in the unexpected failure of Patrice Leconte's film Une Chance sur deux, Alain Delon announced his decision to give up acting in 1997. De Niro played a younger version of Pacino's father in The Godfather, Part II.. His later work has not reached these hights, and his decline is characteristic of the nouvelle vague of French actors, such as Jean-Paul Belmondo. De Niro is often compared to fellow iconic actor Al Pacino and they finally teamed together in Michael Mann's Heat (1995). He also gave tremendous performances in Lucino Visconti's "The Leopard" and, perhaps his finest moment, "Le Samourai". In December De Niro attended an art exhibit in Rome where he presented his late father's art for the first time - Italian officials were surprised and claim that there are now no hard feelings.

His breakthrough as a film star came with Plein Soleil, a 1962 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr Ripley. In October 2004 he canceled an appearance in Rome, Italy after Italian officials claimed he had presented negative stereotypes of their ethnicity in his films. Delon was born in Sceaux, France. Contrary to popular belief De Niro is primarily Irish-American, not Italian. Alain Delon (born November 8, 1935) is a French actor, one of the best known outside his native country. Interestingly, De Niro and Marlon Brando are the only pair of actors who have won Academy Awards for portraying the same person: De Niro won for playing young Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Part II, and Brando had won previously (although he declined the award) for playing the elderly Don Vito in The Godfather. He has won two Academy Awards: as Best Actor for his role in Raging Bull; and as Best Supporting Actor for The Godfather, Part II.

In the mid-1980s, De Niro began expanding into occasional comedic roles, and has had much success in that area as well with such films as Brazil (1985), Midnight Run (1988), Wag the Dog (1997), Analyze This (1999), and Meet the Parents (2000). In these films, De Niro has primarily played charming but emotionally unstable characters who have sociopathic tendencies. He began to work with Martin Scorsese in the same year when the two collaborated on Mean Streets. Later Scorsese films in which De Niro has participated are Taxi Driver (1976), New York, New York (1977), Raging Bull (1980), The King of Comedy (1983), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991), and Casino (1995). After that, he played some major and minor roles in other films not widely seen, until he gained popularity with his role in Bang the Drum Slowly (1973).

A graduate of the Little Red School House, De Niro made his first film appearance in 1968 in Greetings (directed by Brian De Palma). Although not articulate, De Niro is generally considered a skilled observer of physical tics and details, and an intense perfectionist. Praised for his commitment to his roles, De Niro gained 60 pounds (27 kg) and learned how to box for his portrayal of Jake LaMotta in Raging Bull, ground his teeth for Cape Fear, and learned to play the saxophone for New York, New York (all Scorsese films). Robert De Niro (born August 17, 1943 in New York City) is an acclaimed American film actor who is noted for having starred in several of director Martin Scorsese's films.
