De Niro And Hightower Renew Wedding Vows

LATEST: MARTIN SCORSESE, MERYL STREEP and BEN STILLER were among the stars in attendance when ROBERT DE NIRO and his wife GRACE HIGHTOWER renewed their wedding vows.

The couple renewed their vows on Saturday (20NOV04), at De Niro's Ulster County farm near New York's Catskill Mountains.

The bride and bridegroom and their guests gathered around an indoor pool where two judges were on hand to officiate, "So they can make sure this one sticks," joked De Niro.

De Niro and Hightower lit candles and exchanged wedding bands and then led the wedding party into a tent where they drank champagne and ate dishes from De Niro's Nobu restaurant.

De Niro, 61, met Hightower, 51, in London in 1987, they married in 1997, but their marriage looked to be ending when De Niro filed for divorce two years later (99).

Their fallout continued into 2001 as a potential custody battle over their son ELLIOTT, now six, heated up. However, the divorce was never finalised and they managed to smooth over their troubles.
