We take a break from our traditional Movie of the Day entries to bring attention to an actor who has experienced a form of men’s cancer first hand. We do this to raise awareness and as part of our participation in Movember.
Robert De Niro has won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice, once for The Godfather Part II and again for Raging Bull. In addition to starring in over 80 films, De Niro has directed two films and produced many more. We have honored his films almost more times than any others with our Movie of the Day posts.
Robert De Niro was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2003, underwent surgery, and is in remission.
