ROBERT DE NIRO really wanted to watch the U.S. / Germany World Cup game yesterday. Unfortunately, he was filming his upcoming movie "The Intern" in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill neighborhood.
The production actually sent an email to a nearby apartment building, asking if they could put a satellite dish on their roof and run a cable from it down to the street, so he wouldn't miss the game.
But before that could happen, De Niro found an easier way to watch. One of the residents in the building says, quote, "Apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them."
