Robert De Niro, thought of as one of the greatest American actors of all time, was born in New York City, to artists Virginia (Admiral) and Robert De Niro Sr. His paternal grandfather was of Italian descent, and his other ancestry is Irish, Dutch, English, French, and German. He was trained at the Stella Adler Conservatory and the American Workshop. He first gained fame for his role in Bang the Drum Slowly, but he gained his reputation as a volatile actor in Mean Streets, which was his first film with director Martin Scorsese. In 1974 De Niro received an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role in The Godfather: Part II and received Academy Award nominations for best actor in Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, and Cape Fear. He won the best actor award in 1980 for Raging Bull. De Niro heads his own production company, Tribeca Film Center, and made his directorial debut in 1993 with A Bronx Tale.  See full bio on IMDb »
