Robert De Niro - Robert De Niro stopped filming for sport

Robert De Niro halted filming on 'The Intern' to watch the World Cup.

The 70-year-old actor took a break from shooting 'The Intern' in Brooklyn on Thursday (26.06.14) to watch the USA play Germany in the World Cup after finding a group of fans in a nearby house who were hosting a viewing party.

Executives on the movie had originally asked officials at a nearby apartment building to help the movie legend be able to see the game in his trailer.

An email was sent which read: ''Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12 pm.

''Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?''

However, following the request, a resident stepped in to invite the 'Taxi Driver' star to watch it with them.

A neighbour told the Business Insider: ''We got another email from a neighbour saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them.''

Production was halted for two hours so the legendary actor could enjoy the game.
