Movie/TV Trivia

Robert De Niro paid a dentist to ruin his teeth


In Cape Fear, Robert De Niro played Max Cady, a sadistic sex offender who vows revenge on his former attorney (portrayed by Nick Nolte).


In order to get an authentic look for the movie, De Niro decided to take things to the extreme by paying a dentist $5,000 to intentionally mess up his teeth. He then had to fork out another $20,000 for his teeth to be fixed afterwards.

That’s a good chunk of his pay check on dental work alone!

That wasn’t the only film prep De Niro did for the shoot. He hit the gym hard several months before filming began and reportedly brought his total body fat down to only three percent. Wow! Talk about dedication.

The actor also used to regularly call veteran director Martin Scorsese’s home and leave voicemails in Cady’s thick accent because he knew that Scorsese hated the voice.

Fortunately for De Niro, he and Scorsese are good friends so the director got over it in the end!
