Robert De Niro celebrated his 70th birthday with a host of famous friends, including Christopher Walken, Keith Richards and Harvey Keitel.

The Hollywood icon reached the landmark age on Saturday (17.08.13) and to mark the occasion he threw a huge party at his New Paltz estate in New York.

The 'Goodfellas' star treated his guests to a menu created by the restaurant Nobu - which he co-owns - while entertainment was provided by Lenny Kravitz who performed live.

De Niro shared a table with Walken and Keitel and fellow guest Samuel L. Jackson couldn't resist taking a photo of the three legends together.

The 'Pulp Fiction' star posted the image on Twitter, along with the caption: ''Lunched on da photo! Sorry! (sic)''

He wrote in another tweet: ''Kietel, Walken & De Niro! TRIPLEBADMUPFUCCAHHZ!! Happy Bday Bob!! (sic)''

Other guests included Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, Harvey Weinstein, 'The Butler' director Lee Daniels and Martin Scorcese - who has directed De Niro in several acclaimed movies, including 'Taxi Driver'. 'Raging Bull' and 'Casino'.

De Niro's six children and grandchildren were also present as was his actress wife Grace Hightower.

Michael Douglas and his father Kirk Douglas couldn't attend but sent happy birthday messages via video, while Robin Williams and Billy Crystal recorded a comedy skit lampooning their pal.
