Weight watcher De Niro

Robert De Niro tries hard not to “overindulge”.

The actor is a legend in Hollywood and is currently promoting his latest film The Family.

Besides acting, Robert also loves good food, but has to try and rein in his appetite in order not to end up too portly for a role.

“I do love food, but I try not to overindulge as I don’t want to gain too much weight,” he admitted to British magazine OK!

“Especially when I’m working on a movie!”

Robert does allow himself the odd bit of indulgence, particularly at Nobu restaurant, which he part owns.

The 70-year-old is known for his love of slick suits and always looks dapper on the red carpet.

Meryl Streep once revealed that the star is so obsessive about detail, he studied 40 very similar jackets before deciding on one for his Falling in Love character.

“Somehow that particular piece of clothing, that particular something, that particular prop opens up a subconscious door or avenue to things that you’ve accumulated over your life that made impressions on you, that you associate with using that particular thing, that you bring back,” he explained to the Mail Online.

“It comes back to you. And you might not even know why. So it helps give you what you feel is right for that character.”
