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.”

Hillary Clinton Calls Out 'Groups Of Men' Trying To Strip Away Funding From Planned Parenthood!

Hillary Clinton hit the stage at Planned Parenthood’s 100th Anniversary Gala, and slammed “groups of men” in Washington, DC who are deciding the future of women’s health protections.

“As we speak, politicians in Washington are still doing everything they can to roll back the rights and progress we’ve fought so hard for over the last century,” the 69-year-old former Secretary of State expressed during her speech (via CNN). “I mean, could you believe those the photos of groups of men around that conference table deciding to strip away coverage for pregnancy and maternity care? This was a disturbing blast from the past.”

“Right now, they’re trying to jam through a health care plan that would cost 24 million people their health insurance and gut funding for Planned Parenthood,” Hillary added.

Also in attendance at the gala held at Pier 36 on Tuesday evening (May 2) New York City was Chelsea Handler, Meryl Streep, Halsey, Martha Plimpton, Questlove, Shonda Rhimes and Kate Walsh.

Meryl Streep Gets Praised By Viola Davis: 'I Always Feel Like She Sees Me'

Viola Davis is opening up about her friendship with Meryl Streep, who wrote an essay about her after she was named one of Time magazine’s most influential people.

“What I love about Meryl is I always feel like she sees me,” Viola, 51, told ET while hitting the carpet at the Time 100 Gala on Tuesday night (April 25) in New York City. “I never feel like the words she has for me are haphazard. I feel like they’re very specific and they’re well thought out and that makes me feel good. It makes me feel like she really is a friend, that she really takes me in.”

“Besides the fact that it’s Meryl Streep, she really doesn’t have to give me anything, really,” Viola added. “When she just sends me a text message she doesn’t know I get so happy. I try to play it off, I really do, I’m like, ‘Oh ok well have a good day’ but I’m really like, ‘Oh my god, she texted me back!’”
