Robert De Niro Calls For Arts Program Funding at Chaplin Award Gala

Robert De Niro received a huge honor from the Film Society of Lincoln Center at the annual Chaplin Award Gala!

The 78-year-old two-time Academy Award-winner stepped out at the gala on Monday night (May 8) at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City.

Other attendees Michael Douglas, Ben Stiller, Martin Scorsese, Meryl Streep, and Sean Penn, who all presented throughout the evening.

During his acceptance speech, Robert called out “mean-spirited” Donald Trump for targeting arts programs.

“For their own divisive political purposes, the administration suggests that the money for these all-inclusive programs goes to rich liberal elites. This is what they now call an ‘alternative fact,’ but I call it bullshit,” he said during his speech.

Robert later added, “I don’t make movies for rich liberal elites…I make them for everybody.”

Ben Stiller Helps Raise $1 Million to Feed the Hungry in Somalia (Video)

Ben Stiller has already helped raise over $1 million to support an effort to deliver food to Somalis facing starvation.

The 51-year-old Zoolander actor teamed up with the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick, YouTuber Casey Neistat, and Jerome Jarre of Vine and Snapchat fame to raise the funds – and they did it in just 19 hours!

“This is the story of what can happen when the power of social media is leveraged for something good,” Casey said in a YouTube video, explaining the steps they took to achieve their goal.

The process involved Jerome taking to Twitter (in a now-viral tweet) to ask Turkish Airlines to fill up one of its flights with food and other supplies. Stars like Ben and Casey then followed suit, and the airline delivered – it plans to carry around 60 tons of food to Somalia on its first flight over.

Somalia is currently facing a drought and famine crisis, with more than 6 million people (over half the population) in need of food. (via CNN)

Ben Stiller Reveals Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Ben Stiller has revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago.

The 50-year-old actor revealed that early detection saved him while in an interview on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday (October 4).

“It came out of the blue for me,” Ben said. “I had no idea….If I hadn’t gotten the test, my doctor started giving it to me at 46, I still wouldn’t know.”

“I wanted to talk about it because of the test, because I feel like the test saved my life,” Ben added about the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test. Ben added he took the PSA test twice in six months, and in the second test, his PSA went up.

“After the second time, I started to get a little worried,” adding that he had surgery six weeks later. “I was diagnosed on Friday the 13th, then I had until August 23rd to get ready for the surgery. So I just had the summer to hang out and think about it.”

“At first, I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was scared. The one thing that it does is it just stops everything in your life when you get diagnosed with cancer because you can’t plan for a movie – you don’t know what’s going to happen,” Ben added. “The controversy about the test is that once you get treatment for prostate cancer, things can happen: incontinence, impotence. It’s the second most deadly cancer, but it’s also one of the most survived cancers, if it’s detected early.”

“Afterwards, it just gives you an appreciation for life,” Ben continued. “Every six months I’m taking my PSA test to make sure I’m clear.”
