If you ask any actor in the business to list the legends they would love to work with, you can guarantee that Robert De Niro is going to be up there among the best of them, so it is no surprise that actress Zoey Deutch was very excited to work with the Hollywood legend. However, when Zoey thinks back to her time shooting the new movie Dirty Grandpa with Robert, it seems that there is one particular memory that sticks in her mind.
Deutch was a guest on the US breakfast show Today, when she explained, "It was such an amazing experience. Everytime I think of him though, I have this funny image of him that pops in my head. We were waiting for the shot to be set up and it was pouring rain - hailing, actually - so cold, huddling next to this heater, sharing a bag of cool ranch Doritos."
She continued, "So we're sharing this bag of cool ranch Doritos and I'm distracted by the situation at hand, and he kind of like, raises his eyebrows at me, and I'm like, 'What's going on Bob?' and I look back and my coat had caught on fire! The man saved my life. I wouldn't have known... so that was just the beginning of a series of many embarrassing events with De Niro!" It sounds like it was lucky that Robert De Niro spotted it when he did or things could have been much worse.
As well as starring Zoey Deutch and Robert De Niro, the Dirty Grandpa movie also features the likes of Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza, and Julianne Hough, among others. Dirty Grandpa has been directed by Dan Mazer, based on the screenplay written by John Phillips, with the movie set to hit the big screen on January 22 in the US and on January 25 in the UK.
