De Niro is portraying the role of William Hale in the titular movie. During the conversation, he claimed he struggled to understand his character in the titular film. Robert De Niro said,

“I don’t understand a lot about my character. Part of him is sincere. In the other part, where he’s betraying [the Osage people], there’s a feeling of entitlement. We became a lot more aware [of that dichotomy] after George Floyd with systemic racism.”

He then seemingly took a jab at Donald Trump and added,

“It’s the banality of evil. It’s the thing we have to watch out for. We see it today, of course. We all know who I’m going to talk about. But I’m not going to say the name. That guy is stupid. Imagine if you’re smart. Even Hale was smart in many ways. There are people who still think he can do a good job. Imagine how insane that is.”
