Robert De Niro defends Anna Paquin's role in 'The Irishman'

  • Robert De Niro and Anna Paquin star in

"The Irishman", now streaming on Netflix", was directed by Martin Scorsese and also stars Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Scorsese has also said that it's been a very long process of making The Irishman and Netflix was the most appropriate platform to work with, not just because Netflix funded the big-budget movie but also they had given Scorsese more control than what he was expecting.

During the movie, Paquin's character develops a friendship with Frank's friend - union leader Jimmy Hoffa. This time he's standing up for Paquin's role in the film which received lots of criticism because she only had a few lines.

The film, which has a run time of three-and-a-half-hour, saw Scorsese reunite with actor Robert De Niro after twenty four years.

So while Robert De Niro acknowledged in his interview with USA Today that there might have been room to give Anna Paquin a little bit more to say in her scenes opposite him, overall he's proud of what she was able to accomplish in The Irishman.

De Niro weighed in on the controversy surrounding his colleague's lack of dialogue over the holiday weekend, contending that Paquin's performance packs a "powerful" -albeit quiet -punch.

At the heart of these allegation is a July 25 phone call between Trump and Zelensky, which led the launch of the impeach inquiry. The House Intelligence Committee has held public and private hearings investigating the president for the past three months.

"She's terrific and it resonates", De Niro added. However, it's when Peggy's an adult that her silent condemnation of her father, who's been working for the Bufalino crime family and hurting people on her behalf since she was little, becomes so much stronger, especially by the time she utters those seven words. When he asks for clarification on what she means, Peggy inquires, "Why haven't you called Jo?"

Here's how the conversation - if you want to call it that - happens in the film between De Niro and Paquin's characters, according to CNN Entertainment.

That's the entire exchange after which Paquin never speaks again in the film. In November, the True Blood alum corrected a Twitter user who suggested that Scorsese forced her to accept a pointless role. "Guys, I hate to break it to you but it doesn't work that way".

"Nope, nobody was doing any 'ordering, '" she wrote.
