Fantasy Flick Features Faggy De Niro

Neil Gaiman fans have something to look forward to this summer – the big screen adaptation of the comic genius’ graphic novel, Stardust. Starring Charlie Cox and Claire Danes, the film tells the story of a man named Tristan who ventures into the faerie world to find a shooting star. Fantastic insanity ensues.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a faerie land without a bit of sexual ambiguity. The gender-bending comes in the form of Robert De Niro‘s Captain Shakespeare: a pirate with a taste for the sexually untraditional. New York Daily News‘ Ben Widdicombe offers a little insight:

“Whenever [Robert De Niro ] had any gay questions, I just said, ‘What do you think, Bob?'”

That was director Matthew Vaughn (aka Mr. Claudia Schiffer ) at the premiere of his fantasy film Stardust on Saturday night. Somehow, he got De Niro into a corset (for a cancan number, no less) for his role as a flying pirate with a nontraditional lifestyle.

“He asked me, ‘Am I [supposed to be] gay or am I transsexual?'” Vaughn told me. ‘Any kind of pirate you want to be, Bob.'”

De Niro as a butt pirate? That alone is worth the price of admission.
