VoiceIf your initial reaction to seeing Robert De Niro in an advert for Warburtons bagels was a resounding “WTF”, then we’re pleased to say we finally have a few answers for you.
Robert De Niro Explains Himself After Appearing In Warburtons Advert
Earlier this year, De Niro – who is currently appearing in Joker, and will soon star in Martin Scorsese’s new Netflix film The Irishman – appeared in a new ad for the bread brand, which parodied the 1990 gangster film Goodfellas.
Explaining his decision to appear in the campaign, De Niro told GQ: “Look, they asked me to do it and I met the guy [Jonathan Warburton, who also appears in the ad], and I thought it was funny.”He continued: “I saw [Sylvester] Stallone do it and I thought at least he has a sense of humour about it and about himself. And I thought I can look at it two ways.
“Should I think I should never have done that? I’m too good for that or something? And I said, fuck it, I’ll do it. Why not?”
“Don’t hold it against me,” he joked. View this post on InstagramA post shared by British GQ (@britishgq) on Oct 29, 2019 at 1:01am PDTBut the Oscar-winning actor is far from the only A-lister to have signed up to advertise a beloved British food brand.
In the lead-up to Christmas, it’s been revealed that the queen of all things festive Mariah Carey will appear in a new ad campaign for Walkers crisps, which will feature her iconic hit All I Want For Christmas Is You.
