Considered one of the finest American actors, Robert Di Niro is also among those celebs who did not complete high school. Born in Greenwich Village in NYC, the future Godfather and Raging Bull actor attended two private schools, but never graduated from either. He dropped out of high school to join the Stella Adler Conservatory, where he polished his acting skills to pursue his dreams of becoming a sought-after actor.

His first role as the Cowardly Lion in a school production of The Wizard of Oz helped relieve him of his shyness, and through his love of cinema as well, he eventually dropped out to pursue acting as a fulltime career. He and Marlon Brando are the only two actors to have ever received an Oscar award for portraying the same character.

Robert Di Niro is most popular for his method acting techniques that not many celebs have in the industry. He is also one of the few actors who frequently get roles in Martin Scorsese’s mega-hit films.

Robert Di Niro is a talented actor who mostly stars in roles that are angry, depressed, or shifty. He has the ability to add intensity and life to any type of character that is presented to him, which is the reason that he is crowned as the best American actor.
