Robert De Niro & Al Pacino Open Up About Their 50 Year Friendship

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino pose together on the cover of GQ‘s Men of the Year issue, available now.

Here’s what The Irishman co-stars had to share with the mag:

Al on meeting Robert for the first time: I remember the meeting very clearly. Unbelievably, I saw this guy, I thought, Wow, he’s got such charisma. He wasn’t doing anything. He was just walking. Remember? You know, he was Bob. But you felt something from him.

Robert the last film they did together, Righteous Kill: “We went to Europe, a couple of cities for the premiere, and I said: ‘Well, look, Al, one day let’s hope that we’re gonna be here for a movie that we can really feel great about.’ That’s all. Nothing against that movie. But it wasn’t what [The Irishman] is.”

Al on why his 50 year friendship with Robert works: “We get together. And there’s a trust there. There just is. We understand this thing together a little bit better. And you go there sometimes just to get some feedback. We talk about things…We kibitz.”
