DeNiro To NYU Grads: ‘You’re F-ked’

The Fifth Column

I can’t!  I’ve been a DeNiro fan since the 70’s.  In my view, the man is remarkable with his “I don’t give a crap” attitude.  I love this guy!


Robert DeNiro hit graduating NY students with a dose of reality.

“You discovered a talent, developed an ambition, and recognized your passion,” he said at the ceremony, which was held at Madison Square Garden.

“When you feel that you can’t fight it, you just go for it. When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense. Yeah you’re f–ked. The good news is, that’s not a bad place to start,” he said.

Other NYU grads had brighter prospects, he added.

“The school of medicine graduates, each will get a job,” he said. Law school grads will too, he said, adding that if they don’t, “Who cares? They’re lawyers!”

But Tisch alums, he said, will be “opening a door to a lifetime of rejection.”
