My Tocayo likes to tell it like it is. Robert De Niro, who is considered to be 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.
The native New Yorker, De Niro gave an amazing graduation speech to NYU grads AT Tisch School of the Arts' commencement telling the students they would have a hard time finding jobs after graduation.
