Robert De Niro says days as leading actor are gone

Washington, Jan 4: Robert De Niro has confessed that his days as a leading actor are long gone, and admits that he is fine with playing supporting roles.

The 70-year-old actor told Britain’s Metro newspaper that it’s life, he can’t play certain part anymore and instead is playing the role of the father or the grandfather or the great-grandfather and that can be written in a funny way.

The ‘GoodFellas’ star claimed that now he can’t carry the movie as a romantic lead as those days are gone.

De Niro appears alongside Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas in new comedy film ‘Last Vegas’, about a group of elderly friends visiting Sin City. (ANI)
