London, Dec 17 (IANS) Actor Owen Wilson was tongue-tied when he had to shoot alongside Robert De Niro for “Meet The Parents”. He says he even fumbled his lines due to nervousness.The comedian admits he made a fool of himself on the set of the 2000 comedy thanks to De Niro’s powerful presence, reports contactmusic.com.
“I have a strong memory of the first time I was in the scene with De Niro. I’m taking (the family) to my house, and showing this like great big house I have and I turn to talk about the house…I see De Niro’s face. It was the whole cast, but I just kind of froze up when I saw De Niro, and Ben (Stiller) started laughing cause he could see what was happening,” said Wilson.
“None of my lines came out - it was just gibberish. I was like - I had to steel myself for the next takes and (tell myself), You’ve gotta get it together or you’ll get fired!’”
However, gradually he has overcome the feeling to resume his role alongside Stiller and De Niro in the second sequel in the franchise, “Little Fockers”.
