Diane Keaton Felt Intimidated by De Niro

The Big Wedding posterDiane Keaton used to feel intimidated by Robert De Niro.

The Oscar-winning actress stars alongside the Hollywood legend in new movie The Big Wedding and while they are close now, she admits she was quite wary of him when they first worked together many years ago.

“Mr. Robert De Niro. My god. A legend and also a dear man. He's very kind. It's like, oh, he's so kind. Why is he so kind? And he's quiet. But he's a lovely man. I really like him. He loves his family. You don't think of him that way when you only know him from a distance. I did a movie with him called Marvin's Room a long time ago, but he was a producer. I didn't really know him and he was intimidating to me. But things change.”

Diane, 66, also revealed how she likes to walk around Los Angeles as that's when gets to listen to new music: “The kind of music I listen to is when I'm walking, because I walk all over the neighborhoods of Los Angeles. How else am I going to see it? If I don't drive, I take the dog and I listen to something. Right now I love the new Frank Ocean CD, Channel Orange. It's just amazing music. I also like the Jay-Z album with Kanye West. The last one - The Throne album. I just think that's so astonishingly beautiful, the way they orchestrate it. That's how I got to know who Frank Ocean was. Frank Ocean sang on one of the cuts. He [is] very orchestral in a weird way.”

Box Office Breakdown: Deathly Hallows Avoids Getting Tangled

Tangled

Tangled's tresses weren't quite long enough to get past the Deathly Hallows last weekend.

Despite a $48.8 million debut ($68.7 million since Wednesday), Disney's latest animated feature found itself in a tight race. The film starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi landed firmly into second place—approximately $300,000 shy of two-time winner Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Burlesque, featuring Christina Aguilera and Cher, rang up $11.9 million in ticket sales and a fourth-place finish. Although that figure isn't exactly something to brag about, it does represent Cher's biggest opening to date.

Promises of nudity couldn't get Love and Other Drugs into the Top 5. The Anne Hathaway/Jake Gyllenhaal movie earned less than $10 million and a sixth place debut. Meanwhile, Faster—starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton—grossed $8.5 million for seventh place.

Here are some possible suggestions for your upcoming weekend:

Box Office Breakdown: Rambo Outgunned by Spartans

Rambo

Although was hoping to end the series on an up note, it appears the actor/writer/director will just have to settle for second place.  Many had expected the fourth installment would come away with the weekend’s spoils, unfortunately the aging action hero was overpowered by a group of toga-clad warriors.

It should be said though that had an extremely narrow victory.  The spoof of 2007’s edged out the action flick by just $300,000.  But a win is still a win, right?  The satire also had the best per screen average of any movie in the Top Ten ($7104).

Box Office Breakdown: Cloverfield Attacks the Charts

Cloverfield

Final numbers for the three-day weekend revealed what many had suspected: toppled New York and the competition.  The strong numbers were a result of smart marketing.  In addition to the eerie trailers, the film debuted in January - usually a fairly quiet month for decent films.  Cloverfield’s $46 million take has already covered the movie’s budget (estimated at around $25 million).  That dollar amount also earned the flick the title for best MLK and January opener ever.

Although raked in $20 million less than the horror flick, had nothing to cry about.  Thanks to more strategic marketing - this time by - the film was able to take advantage of those looking for something less dark.  Dresses was originally scheduled to debut last week but was repositioned so it could open during the busy weekend.

Unfortunately, female focus on the romantic comedy didn’t help the female-filled .  The movie - co-starring , and - cashed out in 8th place.  This makes two disappointing debuts in a row for the Clan (the first being Tom’s ).  Let us not forget that Katie opted to do this film instead of the for her post-Tom movie return.  Come to think of it, maybe it was for the best.  I could just hear Tom telling us now that if he had known Heath was doing drugs, he would have cured Ledger himself.
