Robert De Niro Tells Art School Grads ...'You're f*****' (VIDEO)

Robert De Niro inspired some very talented art school graduates to dive into the world of anti-depressants, telling them they are "opening a door to a lifetime of rejection."

It's the greatest commencement speech of the season for sure ... De Niro gave Tisch School of the 
Arts grads a glimpse into their future with some hilarious comparisons, telling them medical students will get jobs, lawyers will probably also get jobs and if they don't who cares ... they're lawyers!

But De Niro did offer sound advice, in the form of Valium and Vicodin.

He rules.
