READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Coming up this evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," legendary actor, director, and producer Robert De Niro visits the program, bringing along his unique insights and perspectives on everything from finances to film.
The star of such classic movies as "Taxi Driver" and "Raging Bull," De Niro supports President Obama's proposed "Buffett Rule," calling for increased income taxes on the wealthy:
"As far as, again, the middle class, just having the opportunity that it should have, the taxes being paid compared to the people that have a lot of money, is ridiculous sometimes," he tells Piers Morgan. "You hear about some people, the taxes they don't pay, is like, insane."
Now while De Niro contends he already pays an "enormous" amount of taxes personally, he admits he'd agree to more, adding "I'll do whatever I have to do, whatever's fair."
But first he'd like to see a certain Republican presidential nominee open up his checkbook:
"Even people like Romney, the taxes he pays, are kind of astounding really, from what I've seen," says the two-time Academy Award winner. "Low. Yeah. Very low."
Watch the clip, listen to the interview, then tune in this evening to find out what makes De Niro's heart "swell with pride."
