When acting great Robert De Niro calls you six times and you don't call him back, expect him to call you out on it -- at least that's how the story goes with regard to a recent interaction between him and rap mogul Jay-Z.
When De Niro saw Jay-Z at Leonardo DiCaprio's star-studded birthday bash, he made no qualms about calling the rapper rude and disrespectful, according to Page Six of the New York Post.
So why does De Niro want to talk to Jay-Z so badly?
According to Page Six, De Niro was reaching out to Jay-Z, a fellow Tribeca resident, about a song Jay-Z agreed to record for the Tribeca Film Festival. Jay-Z was reportedly unfazed by De Niro's comments and tried to joke about it, but De Niro wasn't going to be sweet talked. De Niro didn't even soften up when Jay-Z's wife Beyonce approached the pair, a source told the New York Post.
