Robert De Niro talks Martin Scorsese and Jennifer Lawrence

Robert De Niro sees some similarities between the dynamic between he and Martin Scorsese had in the early part of his career and the one between Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell now.

The key, in his mind, though, is being able to just get the movie made.

“When you are fortunate enough to have someone as an actor who has the clout to get a movie made,” the actor said. “And you can make a movie that”s really creative and your vision, you”re lucky. 

Very few actors in fact do have that kind of power, and Lawrence is one of them.

Take a look at what De Niro had to say in the player above.
