Robert De Niro is a fantastic actor. The whole world knows this man. He is starring in a new Hollywood movie about homeless people. The name of the new movie is "Being Flynn."

As a real professional he wanted to feel what it was like to be a homeless man. So he changed his clothes and spent some time in a homeless centre in Boston among homeless people. Nobody recognized him the whole time he was there. He had a cap pulled over his eyes and he pretended to have a cold so he could cover up his face.

Then he went to the financial centre of New York City and spent some time there. He played a homeless man. Again, nobody recognized him.

The film had its premiere on 1st March 2012.
