The 2015 graduating class of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts has something to proud of from now on. Not only they graduated from one of the biggest names in the Art school but also the greatest actor in the world, Robert De Niro gave a memorable commencement speech in which he bluntly said that they all are “f***d” when it comes to their future.
The Oscar-winning actor reminded the Tish School graduates the difficulties they would likely to face in finding the job compared to their friends who are not into the world of arts.
“Tisch graduates, you made it…and now you’re f****d,” he said in the speech.
Robert De Niro who is famous for playing versatile roles in the films like, “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull,” “Goodfellas,” “The Godfather II” never went to any university and he praised the graduates for pursuing a career out of their passion.
“When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense. You weren’t just following your dreams; you were reaching for your destiny,” he added in his speech.
The actor who recently got rejected to play the role of Dr. Martin Luther King in “Selma,” told the graduates that they are going to meet a lot of rejections but giving up is not an option and one should always be prepared for every outcome.
Well, most of the audience laughed out loud when Robert De Niro showed them the truth of their reality, few of the parents objected it. All in all, it Robert De Niro indeed gave an insight and we hope that it will really help the graduates to find a career of their own choice without compromising.
Robert De Niro is set to appear in Scott Mann’s next American heist thriller film, “Bus 657”
