Robert De Niro and Tai Chi

What do you get when you take the funny and talented actor Robert De Niro and team him up with actress Anne Hathaway,  locate them in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and ask them to try and follow along with a local tai chi class?  You get a hilarious scene from their upcoming movie The Intern of course!  Robert De Niro is one of my top 10 favorite actors and Anne Hathaway is always a joy to watch! So yes indeed, celebrities enjoy tai chi!

I always enjoy seeing Tai Chi incorporated into movies and media.  Though it may not always be a “perfect portrayal”, as long as it is not harmful or blatantly incorrect information, I am open to having fun with it.  Besides, who here has not struggled with the same situation of trying to follow along while an instructor teaches the form?

In fact I think the more we see tai chi discussed and displayed, the greater the awareness and curiosity; that’s how the word is spread and that is exactly what I want to encourage!  So when I saw this news clip about the new film The Intern with Robert De Niro (who is the intern) and Anne Hathaway, playing tai chi in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, I wanted to share it with you all.  Here is the only YouTube trailer I found so far…

Let’s all look for this film when it comes out, and I hope you join me in encouraging more tai chi conversation by going to see it!
Also, feel free to share this post with your friends to let them know too!

I welcome your thoughts, insights or questions
