Haute Living Los Angeles enlists Robert De Niro for its latest feature story. Talking about where he’s at in his life at the moment, De Niro talks about getting into the hotel business and starring in Dirty Grandpa alongside Zac Efron. Discussing the hotel business and the success of Nobu, De Niro shares, “I always felt like we were asked by other hotels to come in and give them more credibility and more of a cachet, and I said, ‘Why are we not trying that ourselves? Why are we not taking advantage of that?”
Shifting gears and dishing on Dirty Grandpa, De Niro addresses how the role seems like a radical choice for him. He explains, “I just liked the idea of doing something that was crazy and out there and different [from what I’ve done] and so I said ‘Why not?’ I just thought ‘I’ll just do it and hopefully people like it.’ It’s irreverent and a little out there—but what the hell.” Read more on HauteLiving.com.

The official synopsis for the Dan Mazer directed movie reads: “Jason Kelly [Zac Efron] is one week away from marrying his boss’s uber-controlling daughter, putting him on the fast track for a partnership at the law firm. However, when the straight-laced Jason is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, Dick [Robert De Niro], to Daytona for spring break, his pending nuptials are suddenly in jeopardy.”
“Between riotous frat parties, bar fights, and an epic night of karaoke, Dick is on a quest to live his life to the fullest and bring Jason along for the ride. Ultimately, on the wildest journey of their lives, dirty Grandpa and his uptight grandson discover they can learn from one another and form the bond they never had.”
