Robert De Niro Rocks Some Extra Tall Platforms For Movie Role—And Twitter Is Living For It

Robert De Niro Rocks Some Extra Tall Platforms For Movie Role—And Twitter Is Living For It
Updated 5 months ago

Robert De Niro is returning to work with longtime collaborator Martin Scorsese on a new film detailing the life of hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran. De Niro won his 1981 Best Actor Oscar as the lead in Scorsese's Raging Bull. Fellow Oscar-winner and Scorsese stalwart Al Pacino will join him in the film as Jimmy Hoffa. All things considered, it looks like another hit is in the works. When on-set pictures began circulating, however, Twitter was too distracted by a costuming detail to get excited. 

To realistically portray Frank Sheeran, who was 6 foot 4, De Niro wore platform shoes.

How big are those shoes, you ask? Oh... they're BIG.

Let's hope De Niro looks a bit less silly in the final film.

In the meantime, Twitter is having a field day with the images:

I'd pay to watch this movie...

Scorsese may be asking De Niro to channel his inner Spice Girl:

Or perhaps this is a "next step" for fashion?

But wait!

Some Twitter users are holding off on seeing the movie unless certain conditions are met.
