Celebrate Robert De Niro’s Birthday With a Supercut of His Finest Fiery Moments

Casting director Nessa Hyams once said, “You couldn’t get De Niro arrested.” Notoriously a wallflower back in his early days, the now iconic actor rarely attended parties or hung out; when he did go to a party, he would often be found falling asleep on the couch. He was very serious and rarely ever spoke, which seems like a far cry from the brilliantly explosive icon of American cinema we know today—however its that brooding, contemplative nature that also makes him such a genius on screen.

Throughout his career, De Niro has always shown a fascinating ability to disappear into his characters and live under their skin, making him one of the most versatile and beloved actors who has been a Hollywood staple for almost five decades now. And as tomorrow is his 70th birthday, the good folks over at Flavorwire have put together a supercut of De Niro at his boiling point, looking back on 30 of his films from Raging Bull and Goodfellas to The King of Comedy and Cape Fear. Enjoy.
