Robert De Niro regaled the starry crowd at the Annual Hudson River Park Gala on Thursday night where he was honored and a park bench dedicated to him. “One of my pleasures will be keeping people off my bench who don’t deserve a view of the park like Donald Trump,” he said during a speech.
“F… you Donald Trump. It’s a horror with this mother…er.” The “Good Fellas” actor also described the President as a low life.
Afterwards former mayor Mike Bloomberg deadpanned about the famously shy actor: “It took me years before I finally got a sentence out of Bobby. He’s not a big talker.”
Earlier the Oscar winner told Confidential that he loves the greenery on the edge of the Hudson. De Niro who has often been pictured with old pal Harvey Weinstein admitted that they haven’t spoken since the Weinstein sex scandal imploded.
Seth Meyers, Coco Rocha, and Mike Meyers were among the guests at Pier 62 who also saw Gloria Gaynor belt out her classic, “I Will Survive.”
The Hollywood Reporter reported on Friday that Amazon was considering dropping a Weinstein Co. project that was to star Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.
