Entertainment behind the scenes
Would-be thespians take note, screen legend Robert De Niro has the day’s free acting lesson.
The actor, on a whistle stop at the Toronto Film Festival to promote “Stone”, which co-stars Edward Norton and Milla Jovovich, told Reuters the secret to great acting is keeping on-screen reactions to a minimum.
“Actors tend to feel (there are) certain things they have to do more when, really the less they do — in fact if they do nothing — they’re better off,” De Niro said.
“You’re just reacting. You’re just simply saying what you need to say to get the point across.”
