Los Angeles:  Veteran actor Robert De Niro had filming on “The Intern” halted so he could watch a World Cup soccer game with fans in a nearby building.

The 70-year-old actor took a break from shooting in Brooklyn, Thursday to watch the USA play Germany in the World Cup after finding a group of fans in a nearby house who were hosting a viewing party, reports contactmusic.com.

Executives on the movie had originally asked officials at a nearby apartment building to help the movie legend be able to see the game in his trailer.
An email was sent which read: ''Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12 pm. Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?''

However, following the request, a resident stepped in to invite the “Taxi Driver” star to watch it with them.

A neighbour told the Business Insider: ''We got another email from a neighbour saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them.''

Production was halted for two hours so the legendary actor could enjoy the game.
