Cape Fear, Robert De Niro’s incredible expense to the dentist to prepare for the role

Among the many memorable roles played by Robert De Niro one often forgets, in a rather guilty way, to remember that of Max Cady: to give a face to the protagonist of Cape Fear the good Bob did not discount himself, even intervening in various ways on his physical appearance.

In addition to the large number of tattoos that ours sports throughout the film (all obviously fake and come off without problems after filming), for example, the actor of Once Upon a Time in America and Taxi Driver decided to incur an expense quite large from his dentist before and after the shoot, in order to … Ruin your teeth!

Before getting into the role of Max Cady, in fact, De Niro paid 5,000 dollars to make his teeth appear damaged in order to make his character’s smile more credible and threatening; at the end of work on Scorsese’s film the actor obviously had to run for cover, thus paying for others $ 20,000 to repair the damage voluntarily inflicted on his poor teeth some time before.

In short, yet another demonstration of our Bob’s insane attachment to his work! Speaking of teeth: some time ago Sharon Stone indicated Robert De Niro as the best kisser in Hollywood.
