Why did Robert De Niro stop shooting for The Intern?

The veteran actor wanted to watch a football match and hence stopped shooting for his upcoming film

Robert De Niro had filming on The Intern halted so he could watch a World Cup soccer game with fans in a nearby building. The 70-year-old actor took a break from shooting in Brooklyn, Thursday to watch the USA play Germany in the World Cup after finding a group of fans in a nearby house who were hosting a viewing party, reports a leading website.

Executives on the movie had originally asked officials at a nearby apartment building to help the movie legend be able to see the game in his trailer.

An email was sent which read: ”Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12 pm. Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?”

However, following the request, a resident stepped in to invite the Taxi Driver star to watch it with them. A neighbour told the Business Insider: ”We got another email from a neighbour saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them.”

Production was halted for two hours so the legendary actor could enjoy the game.
