Robert De Niro jokes about owning ‘all’ Taylor Swift albums

It turns out that Robert De Niro knows Taylor Swift’s music all too well.

The Hollywood legend, 78, opened up about his unlikely use of Swift’s music and joked that he owns all of the Grammy award-winning singer’s albums.

Speaking to Variety about the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival, actor and co-founder of the event, Jane Rosenthal, was asked for their thoughts on Swift showing her short film “All Too Well” at the festival.

De Niro remained tight-lipped about whether or not he had seen the project, but noted that he was “probably” familiar with her music.

When asked if he’s a Swiftie, De Niro laughed, “I’ve got all her albums.”

“I’m not a fan. I probably hear her music and like it on the radio,” he added.

“My young daughter turns on a transmitter and it drives me crazy when they chat. If they have music, it’s okay,” he continued.

Swift will screen “All Too Well: The Short Film” at the festival later this week and discuss the process of bringing the 13-minute track’s backstory to fruition.

Titled ‘A Conversation with Taylor Swift’, the event will take place on June 11 at 3 p.m. at the Beacon Theater in front of a live audience.

Swift released the project last November, which was based on a 10-minute version of the song she released the same month.

In the short film, ‘Stranger Things’ actor Sadie Sink and ‘Teen Wolf’ star Dylan O’Brien starred as a young Swift and her ex-boyfriend – rumored to be Jake Gyllenhaal.

While Swift has never officially confirmed that the song is about the 41-year-old ‘Nightcrawler’ star, it’s generally accepted that it is.

The couple reportedly dated from October to December 2010, when they broke up just before her 21st birthday, which also features in the short film.

The Tribeca Film Festival will take place from June 8 to 19.
