Star sighting: Robert De Niro

AP photo

AP photo

Robert De Niro, in town filming the moving “Killing Season,” dined recently with his wife in the St. Regis hotel’s elegant new restaurant, Astor Court.

He also went clubbing with T.I. TMZ just posted a bunch of photos. Here is the link.

“Killing Season” co-stars John Travolta, who has been spotted all over the place. De Niro has kept a lower profile until recently. We’re told that during his time at the St. Regis he and the Mrs. enjoyed Astor Court, billed repeatedly as a “discreet” place to dine with friends.

We will skip mentioning what De Niro actually ate, since we know that drives some of you crazy, but we were told that he laid an awesome tip on the servers.

I heard he was nice, but very quiet, shy and reserved. I’d love to run into him, but kind of knowing this, I would be afraid to approach him.

Thanks for the stalking update!! Apparently the AJC thinks we are all idiots and celebrity worshipers!

His wife and kids ate at South City Kitchen in Midtown. Close, but no cigar. ;-)

So, did you also learn:

1. Which commode he sat on in the restroom?
2. Which lavatory did he wash his hands–or did he wash his hands?
3. Did he cough or sneeze while dining?

Idol worshiping…how utterly unattractive!

He didn’t have “running water” in the “hills”? Don’t know where you got your info but the location he was at in Rabun County is pretty nice. Running water, in-door facilities, and even golf. What an asinine statement trying to be “funny”.

I have lived in Rabun County all of my 45 years, and I have always had running water. You might want to visit us in the “hills” sometime. It’s a pretty amazing place. I’d say at least 90% of Atlantans would love to live here, rather than that sht hole Atlanta.

He was in the Atlanta area a few months ago too. I’ve heard his wife Grace and he gave ‘birth’ at Northside Hospital via a surrogate in December….Dinero made an appearence incognito….what a wise guy…..

Hey Steve, wink-wink. “I ain’t got no runnin’ water up here on my side of this here mountain! And if I did, I wouldn’t let the likes of city-slicker Jennifer Brett know about it. Maybe she can keep put in the big city with such amenities as traffic, crime, smog, and indoor plummin’.”

Some people just can’t hangout like Travolta’s doing and I’m actually surprised he’s out as much as he is. De Niro has his wife and family with him and he’s probably nervous some hillbilly might scare em. Some of them hollyweirds are weird but I do like his acting.

Apparently the AJC doesn’t realize how many Atlantans have homes –yes, WITH running water — in Rabun County. What an ignorant crack.

A bit of this flick was in fact shot in Douglas County earlier this year;
Here, we were mostly gracious hosts of these guys and kept it quiet, except for a few non-local stalkers who drove out and tried to get pics of these guys with their kids …. like some sort of trophy, I guess?
Some of those folks have named their children after these guys; “Travolta” as a first name, for example … some choose Lexus or GE or LGE or Micronta, etc, as first names for their spawn, .. but some go for the stars’ names. As an aside ..
Some of us out here have running water … some few do not … was someone keeping a score-card on running-water or is this just stalkers forum?
Good Lord.

Yesterday it was an idiot statement about Whitney not leaving any money to her ex husband and today it’s no running water in North Georgia. Maybe it’s time for the AJC and your family to accept the fact they need to find a “home” for you. And make sure the doors require a password of at least 3 digits. Anything over two digits will secure you when you get like you are.

The number of people picking on you about these blogs should be an indication of how much humanity despises you. Just because a handful of people enjoy this blog means nothing, There are more than a handful of people that think talking on their phones while driving is OK…..And we know that is wrong.

Wow, yes his wife is black and they adopted a baby in December. Personally, I think they are crazy. I would not adopt anything at this time in my life being in my fifties as they are. Will this be a baby for them to nurture or one to leave on the nanny? His wife seems peculiar….

Um, no, they wouldn’t. If they did, Rabun county would have 5 million people. They do have the best school name ever though: Gapindacoochie, or something like that.

LOL @ people getting so worked up over a harmless joke.

I think you’ll find that the prices at the Chevron in downtown Clayton are the same as they are at your General Store off Warwoman Road. No need to change your prices.

I don’t understand why all the folks who claim to hate this blog keep reading it in the first place. You know what, some of us think it’s fun to find out when celebrities are in our town. Does it change the world? No. Is it even important? No. But it’s fun. And it’s harmless.

So, lay off the negativity. Jeez.

I’m not going to stoop to name-calling but, Ms. Brett, you really need to visit Rabun County & see the multi-million dollar homes on Lake Burton & Lake Rabun. I’m quite sure they all have running water.

Hmm, back to Atlanta for running water…interesting since Atlanta, unlike most of the rest of Georgia, is the one with the major unresolved plumbing issues (sewer problems anyone?). Lived intown, wouldn’t go back.

Dear It’s official,

As of this morning this blog’s PV total for the year is 1,498,868. I’d say that is more than a handful.

Also, the word heifer has only one F.

Hope that helps,

I am so excited about this report that I just extedned my people magazine another five years through 2025 and watched two hours of my Showbiz Tonight recorded collection (my life would be a wreck if I didn’t have AJ Hammer every night).

P.S I enjoy reading about these sightings. I once was dining at a Sushi Restaurant in 1986 and in walks Gene Hackman. I about fell out of my chair because there was no reason for him to be in town. Outside of that, it is pretty funny to watch all the celebrity worship in this country. Even more amazing is when these people speak out politically as if they have some sort of realistic political insight. That’s like asking my opinion on how I think the brain surgery should be done (I am in technology sales).

PS I’d like to know what they had to eat as well. This information gives some of us foodies a glimpse into the signature entrees of various restaurants in town.

I agree, We have a house up there as well. A rainy day in the mountains is better than a sunny day in the city!

Dear URnotUA,

Keep this under your hat:

The De Niros started with a caesar salad and roasted beet salad, followed by a goat cheese tart with roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, arugla, truffle & lemon vinaigrette and butternut squash bisque soup. To drink Hendricks and Grey Goose Poire cocktails, followed by glasses of Karl Kaspar Kabinett Riesling and Macon Villages Bourchard & Fils chardonnay. Tip was a generous 30 percent.

That’s going to drive some people crazy, I know, but since you asked!

Di Nero is just another in a long line of liberal slime.

It is just amazing how some so idolize one whose contribution to man is pretending to be someone they’re not. I guess this pretending (acting) comes natural after a while.

For those of you acting as if you’re above celebrity gossip, the link you clicked on to read this article was “Robert De Niro spotted at St. Regis.” So, clearly, you thought this fact was semi-enticing, or you wouldn’t have clicked on the link. There’s nothing wrong with interest in celebrities being in Atlanta. After all, big celebrities in your city typically means more money for your city. Does that make it more newsworthy for you?

I love De Niro and work right next to the Regis, wish i could have caught a glimpse. He is still so sexy!

Jen, don’t pay these idiots on here any attention, the more they log on and comment the better for you!

You aren’t doing something right if you don’t have any HATERS!!!!

March 9th, 2012

Jennifer, way to shoot back at all the folks on here hating. The only reason they spew so much venom is because they probably have no life to begin with anyway. That’s why they click on a link to read a story, then post why they don’t like it. Where’s the sense in that??

For those of you who are impressed with these entertainment clowns run on down to Macon and try to find Clint Eastwood who is filming there. Go ahead and make his day,lol.
