Robert De Niro has officially been named the greatest actor of all time, and not a single vote was cast.
The world-famous American movie superstar beat out the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood and Charlie Chaplin in a survey that looked at the top 200 films (excluding sequels) in terms of overall rankings and how many times each actor played a lead role.
Factors like industry awards and popularity were not considered…
De Niro has quite a few great movies under his belt, including Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Casino, Once Upon A Time In America, Heat and Deer Hunter. He was easily the top pick, with seven of those 200 films having him as a lead actor.
Chaplin, Eastwood and DiCaprio tied for second place with five movies apiece.
