Robert De Niro joins Benjamin Millepied in new Ermenegildo Zegna ad

Robert De Niro and Benjamin Millepied have suited up for the latest Ermenegildo Zegna campaign.
The veteran actor was tapped by the Italian fashion house at the end of 2016 and appeared in his first advertisements earlier this year (17), looking dapper in a project titled Defining Moments opposite American Honey star McCaul Lombardi.
Now, in his second outing for Zegna, De Niro continues his style streak with Natalie Portman’s dancer and choreographer husband Millepied, with both men posing in turtleneck jumpers and suit jackets for the marketing imagery.
“No, I had never met him before, so this was a treat,” Millepied told W magazine of working with the Taxi Driver star on the campaign. “He is someone I admire, and it was interesting to get to know him a bit. I got to talk to him about some of things that I am interested in, like some of the work that he has done and the collaborations he’s had. He had worked with (late director, producer and actor) Elia Kazan, so I was very curious about that. We talked about the performing arts, we talked about film, we talked about acting – I am actually directing my first film next year.”
