I will never let the fact that Robert de Niro the person is apparently an asshole interfere with my admiration of his work as an actor. But I do wish he would glom on to some insight and realize that it is only his acting that is of interest to most of us. His pontifications. — which tend to come to strings of obscenities — are rather insubstantial, to put it mildly. Go home, Bob. Chill out. Trust me. I will never bother you with my anarchism.
