Robert De Niro pranked Nat Wolff on the set of The Intern

Posted on

Nat Wolff’s newest movie, The Intern, finds the young star acting alongside the likes of Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam DeVine, and Wolff’s hero, Robert De Niro. While Wolff only had one day on set with the Oscar-winning actor, the two shared a bonding moment that might have been at Wolff’s expense.

For EW’s Greatest Story Ever Told video series, the actor explains how De Niro brought him out of his shell with a little prank involving bubblegum and minor on-set vandalism. (De Niro is such a prankster.) To see the full narrative — including Wolff’s De Niro impression — check out the video above.

The Intern is out now. Wolff’s other project, Ashby, written and directed by Tony McNamara, also arrives in theaters this weekend.
