Noel Gallagher has admitted Rob De Niro “didn’t have a clue” who he was when he met him in France recently.
The High Flying Birds man recently uploaded a photo of the pair dining together on Instagram along with the caption: “So we’ve been down to The South Of France for a few days and at a 17 hour lunch at our friends house THIS..THIS.. Actually happened!!!”
On the meet up Gallagher has now said: “I sat next to him and I’ve got to say he didn’t have a clue who I was.
“We had this lunch that started at one o’clock in the afternoon… and he left at about eight or nine. He was there for about eight hours.
“As he was leaving, he said, ‘Write down the name of that band again that you were in.’
“If I ever have the pleasure of meeting him again, he’ll just go, ‘I’ve never met this guy’.
Gallagher also said he grilled him on his films and Donald Trump.
He told The Daily Star: “We’re all huge fans of him and his films and I was bombarding him – stuff like how did you make Raging Bull, how did that come to be in the film and where do you get the inspiration for your parts? All that kind of thing – I have no idea what he said!”
“He did the De Niro face when he was slagging off Donald Trump. I nearly had a tear in my eye when he was doing it. The day after I was saying to (my wife) Sara, ‘I think the only thing that could top that would be going on a bender with Jack Nicholson, that’s it really.”
