Robert De Niro has long been known as one of the most notoriously intimidating celebrities to interview. (Just ask Jimmy Fallon, who, as you’ll recall, inexplicably choose to have him as his first-ever guest on his show.) Of course, the reserved actor seems a lot less scary when you place him next to Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘s security guard/star Guillermo Diaz, who dressed up like a Canadian Mountie for the sit-down at the Toronto Film Festival. (JKL is broadcasting from the fete this week.) In an exclusive — sorry, exclusivo — interview, Diaz sat down uncomfortably close to De Niro (he goes in for no less than four hugs with the Oscar winner), discussed the actor’s new movie, Killer I-lete, talked about the “other movie” (a.k.a. “The Focker Movie”), and put him on a phone call with his mother to chat tamales. Watch the funny, sweet, and very polite (“I like you, Mr. Robert DeNiro”) moment below:

Should JKL‘s Guillermo just conduct every interview with De Niro from here on out? Or every celebrity, for that matter? Share in the comments section below, PopWatchers!
