He is one of the world’s most well-known and talented actors, but he recently had an accident and is having difficulties moving due to the orthosis he must wear.
It’s about Robert De Niro, who was seen entering a New York City tower with a metal orthosis on his right leg. The 77-year-old actor was standing next to a friend holding his cane and watching him from behind to ensure he didn’t fall.
Robert De Niro’s physical condition has degraded due to the set accident, and he is now noticeably frail and has difficulty moving.
The actor suffered a leg muscle injury while filming Martin Scorsese’s “Killers Of The Flower Moon” in Oklahoma in mid-May. The GoodFellas star revealed that he was in “terrible pain” due to the event.
“It just happened to come to our attention at the moment. The pain was tremendous, and now I had to recover. Things happen, especially as you age, and you must be prepared for the unexpected. It’s tolerable, though.”
“I play a passive character in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. We’ll be alright because I’m not a huge mover. I have to finish the medical procedure and keep my foot in a precise position to allow it to heal,” explained Robert De Niro.
Actor Robert De Niro dropped out of high school at 16 to study acting with Stella Adler. He later worked with well-known filmmakers such as Brian De Palma, Elia Kazan, and, most notably, Martin Scorsese.
De Niro received his first Academy Award nomination for his performance in The Godfather: Part II (1974). He went on to direct several critically acclaimed films, including The Deer Hunter (1978), for which he received an Academy Award nomination (1980).
De Niro’s career flourished in the 1990s with films such as Goodfellas and Analyze This. He was most recently recognized for his work on Silver Linings Playbook (2012), for which he garnered his eighth Academy Award nomination.
