Roger Federer pitched a film to Robert De Niro. He even sent him a cute little ‘mood film’, trying to convince the Oscar winning actor to join him for a promotional video for his native country.
But sadly, De Niro wasn’t impressed.
Apparently, Switzerland is ‘too perfect’ for the actor’s liking. The people are too nice with their charming little towns and green valleys, and there’s absolutely no drama or ‘jeopardy’ involved.
He tells Federer to call Tom Hanks instead in this film:
Did he really say no to the ad though? I mean, who could say no to this smile?
All very meta, great humour, and no drama indeed.
