Robert De Niro’s school of less is more


deniro 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┬áto 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.”
