A few days shy of his 75th birthday on Aug. 17, Robert De Niro hit the beach in Santa Monica, CA and took a dip in the Pacific. Though he’s marking his 50th year as a movie star, he’s never gone Hollywood — his hometown is where his heart is. "Hollywood is a place, an industry, and a state of mind," Robert has said. "But New York, New York is home." That’s where the most important people in his life are. "To me, family is everything," he shared. "My wife, Grace, my children, my grandkids [are] my entertainment, my art, my passion." Family has always come first for Robert, even though his parents — painters Robert De Niro Sr. and Virginia Admiral — divorced when he was only two years old. His dad came out as gay, and the family remained close; when Robert Sr. was stricken with cancer, Virginia cared for him,

Updated with CBS statement: Robert De Niro, who appeared at the Tony Awards to introduce Bruce Springsteen’s performance of a contemplative, piano-accompanied version of “My Hometown,” burst out with two bluntly profane blasts aimed at President Donald Trump.

“I’m just going to say one thing,” De Niro said, wearing a scowl worthy of Jimmy Conway in GoodFellas: “F-ck Trump!” When the astonished audience broke out into a mix of laughter and gasps, he paused for a few seconds and then followed with, “It’s no longer ‘down with Trump.’ It’s ‘f-ck Trump!'” He then pumped both fists, Jake Lamotta-style.

How Tommy Mottola Brought Donna Summer to Broadway
Tommy Mottola was the king of the music business for so long that he had his pick of any A-list star to perform at his 2000 wedding to Mexican singer and actress Thalía. He invited Donna Summer. “She’s my wife’s favorite singer,” Mottola recalls on a recent afternoon. “I didn’t tell my wife because I wanted to surprise her. Halfway through the dinner, ‘MacArthur Park’ starts playing. Donna then walks onstage. It was stunning. And then, of course, Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan all got onstage, singing with Donna, doing background. It was a hell of an extravaganza.”

In the run-up to the Tony Awards, Mottola is mapping out plans to take his Tony-nominated Broadway biopic about the disco icon, “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical,” on the road, with U.S. and international tours. The production, in which Summer is played by Storm Lever, Ariana DeBose and Lachanze,
