De Niro Curses While Giving Commencement Speech

While giving a commencement speech at New York University, famed actor Robert De Niro did something that many never thought off. 

While giving his commencement speech during New York University’s Tisch Schoolof Arts graduation ceremony that was held last week on Friday, De Niro said that, “You made it — and, you're f—ed.”

He made this comments during a Madison Square Garden set ceremony where he also went on to state that graduates who have degrees in dentistry, business, education, nursing and law have a very good future ahead of them – a decision which other student made using logic as well as reasoning, but one that many of the crop performance couldn’t make.    

“You discovered a talent, developed an ambition and recognized your passion. When you feel that, you can't fight it — you just go with it,” De Niro explained. “When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense. You aren't just following dreams, you're reaching for your destiny. ... You're an artist — yeah, you're f—d. The good news is that's not a bad place to start.”

De Niro, who is also the co-founder of Tribeca Film Festival went on further stating that, “Now that you've made your choice — or, rather, succumbed to it — your path is clear. Not easy, but clear. You have to keep working, it's that simple. You got through Tisch, that's a big deal. Or, to put it another way, you got through Tisch? Big deal! “A new door is opening for you — a door to a lifetime of rejection. It's inevitable," he warned of post-graduate life.”

"How do you cope? I hear that Valium and Vicodin work! ...You don't want to block the pain too much. Without the pain, what would we talk about?"
