De Niro

American actor and producer Robert De Niro, wrote an open letter to thank Meryl Streep on her passionate Golden Globes acceptance speech against President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday night.

The heartfelt letter of De Niro, published by People said, “What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully,”

“I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough.”

He also thanked the legendary actress for being so brave to use her “powerful voice” that “inspires others to speak up as they should so their voices will be heard too. It is so important that we ALL speak up.”

While receiving her {Streep} lifetime achievement award, she said that Hollywood “belongs to the most vilified segments in American society right now” and urged the media to rise up to Trump “to hold power to account, to call to the carpet for every outrage.”

Meryl StreepStreep once impersonated President-elect Trump last June at the annual Shakespeare in the Park Public Theater Gala event in Central Park, New York; she wore a fat suit and put some orange make up to look like Trump.

Nonetheless, saying some controversial remarks is not a new thing with the actor.

He {De Niro} gave his take against Republican candidate a month before the US presidential election, saying he’d like to “punch” Trump “in the face”

And in 2011, while receiving his Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, he made controversial remarks about immigration and deportation.

De Niro said in a statement, “I’m sorry more members of the foreign press aren’t with us tonight, but many were deported right before the show along with most of the waiters. And Javier Bardem.”

Throughout the years, De Niro and Streep co-starred four times in big screen and also have the same views against the succeeding US President.
