Robert De Niro continues to stir controversy with Republican audiences and though things are going well for him career-wise, he is in the midst of a divorce from his wife of 20 years, Grace Hightower. De Niro reportedly wanted to keep the divorce private and away from the public, but Hightower disagrees and wants to go to court. The couple has a 20-year-old Autistic son and a 7-year-old daughter. The couple is working out visitation and custody issues.
De Niro has been portraying Robert Mueller on NBC’s Saturday Night Live to both praise and acclaim as well as criticism. De Niro discussed what portraying Mueller means to him in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
“I consider it my civic duty to do that part — just to be there because [Mueller] doesn’t say much, but he doesn’t have to. It’s that simple. I might even be happier the day that Mueller puts him in handcuffs, takes him in an orange jumpsuit and puts him away for a long time.”
