I’ve come to know De Niro fairly well down the years. He’s a very compassionate man. He’s basically a very good man and you can see that in him. So he can take on characters that are pretty disturbing and make them human because of that compassion. It’s taken me years to figure it out. He has an ability to make audiences feel empathy for very difficult characters because there is something very decent in him. […]And even now I still know of nobody who can surprise me on the screen the way he does — and did then. No actor comes to mind who can provide such power and excitement. - Martin Scorsese

I wish I had that knowledge of movies that he has. He’s like an encyclopedia. I could call him up and ask him about a certain movie, and he would know about it. He’s seen everything, it’s great. - Robert De Niro


Leo has a similar sensibility to me. I’m 30 years older than him, but I think we see the world the same way, meaning he feels comfortable with the characters I’ve dealt with over the years in movies. But also with Leo it’s always an interesting process of discovery. And I don’t say that in a facile way either, because we never know what that process is going to be, and it’s always intimidating at first. And then Leo really gets into it and we start unravelling all these layers. - Martin Scorsese

If you’d asked me, at 16, the director I wanted to work with, it would have been Marty. Marty’s not afraid to sit there for days on end just to get a scene right. Most important, I trust him, which makes my job as an actor a lot easier. - Leonardo DiCaprio
