DeNiro Scares Stardust Actors

DeNiro Scares ActorsDirector Matthew Vaughn had no need to instruct Charlie Cox and Claire Danes to "act scared" of Robert DeNiro's intimidating character in new movie STARDUST - because they were genuinely terrified of the star. Vaughn urged the stars to conjure an atmosphere of terror in a scene where De Niro takes the pair hostage, and this inspired the veteran actor to click straight into Mafia mode. Cox says, "Bob's a pirate and he has us tied up. He's doing his Mafioso intimidating stuff, and Matthew's going to us: 'This is scary, this is really scary.' "But by this time we're scared of Bob for real, so there's no need to act."

I had thought that this might be a movie about the soon to be extinct Stardust in Las Vegas. Instead it is about the award-winning fantasy novel Stardust by Neil Gaiman. The book tells the story of a young man who promises his beloved that he will bring her a fallen star. He goes into a magical realm and encounters all manners of mythic creatures.
