Robert De Niro lays it on the line to NYU grads: “You’re f**ked.”

Robert De Niro recently delivered the commencement address to grads of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and he didn’t try to sugarcoat their future. “You’re fucked,” he said, telling them they  can expect a constant struggle and frequent unemployment. “A new door is opening to you,” he said. “A door to a lifetime of rejection. It’s inevitable.”

His solution? “I hear that Valium and Vicodin work.”

Luckily, he was born in 1943. So he is too old (just barely) to be considered another one of those obnoxious Baby Boomers who delivers unsympathetic advice to Millennials while refusing to get off the stage and die, already (see the post below).
