Abstract:

From Mean Streets to Casino, Robert De Niro has dominated Hollywood for nearly a quarter of a century. Dynamic and electrifying, his performances have been consistently memorable, and the films he has made with director Martin Scorsese (including Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas) make a roll-call of some of the greatest cinema of our times. Despite his fame and success, De Niro's private existence is little known and has seldom been explored. Now, for the first time, here is the full story of this astonishing actor's life. Drawing on first-hand interviews with some of his closest friends and colleagues, this is a revealing and sometimes startling account of an intensely private man. While previous biographers of De Niro have only scraped the surface of his complex character, Andy Dougan's sensitive and perceptive portrayal lays bare the psychological and emotional scars which this consummate Method actor has sought to hide for so long.

Compelling and full of insight, Untouchable: A Biography of Robert De Niro is the definitive account of a great actor's career, and a fascinating view of his complex inner world.
