November 9, the Hollywood star Robert De Niro will visit Russia again. The organizers of his visit say that this time the artist comes to Moscow not because of his creative interests; this time he comes as a co-owner of the Japanese restaurant Nobu, which will be opened in one of the city malls, TASS.
In 1987, the actor headed the jury of the Moscow International Film Festival. Ten years later, he came to Russia again and noted that the capital has changed a lot. He was particularly struck by the city nightlife, "full of lights, different clubs." In 2009, he personally opened the first Nobu restaurant on the Boshaya Dmitrovka. It was the Moscow branch of a large chain of Japanese restaurants, a co-owner of which is Robert De Niro.
Now De Niro is 72. And he is one of the leading actors of the American cinema. Allegedly, he became a "star" by accident: at one of the receptions the novice actor had been introduced to a hardly known director Martin Scorsese, with whom they created six films. The talent of Robert De Niro was noticed by Francis Coppola. De Niro played young in the second serie of "The Godfather" and later won the "Oscar"Award for Best Supporting Actor. Among the other famous works of De Niro are "Mean Streets," "Taxi Driver," "New York, New York", "The King of Comedy," "Brazil," "Analyze This," "Meet the Parents". He has got one more "Oscar" for the "Raging Bull" film. с
Except of being a director, De Niro is also a successful businessman: the producer, the owner of a chain of restaurants, and the New York Film Centre.
