2005_06_robertdeniro.jpgPerhaps more distressing than his latest film roles, everyone's favorite tough guy, Robert De Niro, wept an exhibit of his late father's paintings in France. Perhaps it's a nod to Father's Day, and of course it's sweet that a son would get so verklempt at seeing his father honored...but, well, Gothamist just prefers our De Niro fix tough, crazy, or mercenary.

And Happy Father's Day, to everyone out there! We hope you found gifts more imaginative than ties or golf balls - unless your dad really wanted those things.
