Robert De Niro defends Anna Paquin's role in 'The Irishman'

Anna Paquin and Robert De Niro

In the film, Paquin plays Peggy Sheeran, the daughter of De Niro's Frank Sheeran.

So she has questions when Hoffa goes missing and her father reveals that he has not yet reached out to Hoffa's wife.

One Twitter user called Paquin "underused" in the film, while another said she "deserves better" as an award-winning actress.

Paquin, though she appears throughout the film, says those words - her first and only lines in the film - almost three hours into the movie.

De Niro told USA Today in an interview published on November 29, 2019, that the actress delivered a good performance.

Speaking in an interview with USA Today, the 76-year-old actor defended Paquin's role in the movie and shared that she was really powerful in the epic gangster pic. "She's terrific and it resonates". Maybe in other scenes, there could have been some interaction between Frank and her possibly, but that is how it was done.

"Why", Peggy asks Frank to which he responds "Wha?"

Copa America draw reveals path to glory
The 12-team tournament, which runs from June 12 to July 12, will be co-hosted, for the first time, by Colombia and Argentina. The 2019 Asian Cup champions competed in last year's Copa America earning a draw against Paraguay in a competitive campaign.

"Why? Why?" Peggy asks Frank in the film. Even after being the most prominent female character in the movie, Paquin only speaks seven words in her ten-minute screen time.

Here's how the conversation - if you want to call it that - happens in the film between De Niro and Paquin's characters, according to CNN Entertainment.

Paquin doesn't appear to be too upset about her limited dialogue, either.

Rodrigo Prieto, the cinematographer who worked with Scorsese on The Irishman, as well as other Scorsese movies including Silence and The Wolf of Wall Street, confirmed the plans to Collider, including the March, 2020, start date.

Paquin replied to the tweet with the following: "Nope, nobody was doing any 'ordering, '" Paquin tweeted. "I auditioned for the privilege of joining the incredible cast of The Irishman and I'm incredibly proud to get to be a part of this film".

As for "The Irishman", we won't know how many people actually watched it unless Netflix releases numbers, which the streaming giant has only done for some of its most successful movies and TV shows.
