WATCH: Robert De Niro Saved ‘Dirty Grandpa’ Co-Star Zoey Deutch’s Life
The 21-year-old was on the morning talk show to promote her film with De Niro and Zac Efron, when she told a story of how Robert rescued her from a fiery demise.
They were setting up the shot and we’re so cold, huddling up next to this heater, sharing a bag of cool ranch Doritos — as you do with Bobby — and I’m distracted with the situation at hand and he raises his eyebrows at me. I’m like ‘What’s going on?’, so I look back and my coat had caught on fire. The man saved my life.
Leave it to an actor with as much subtlety in expression as De Niro to save a woman’s life with a mere raise of the eyebrows.
