Robert De Niro reportedly walked off during his recent interview with the 'Radio Times' complaining about the "tone" of the interview.

According to reporter Emma Brockes who gave 'The Guardian' details of what happened on set of the interview, the 72-year-old got upset after been asked about two major topics.

Brockes claimed  she questioned him about the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City, home to the famed film festival which he co-founded, asking if the area had been overrun by bankers. And secondly, she questioned if the Oscar winner ever gets into “autopilot” mode while on set.

De Niro then reportedly asked Brockes to turn off the recorder and began pacing “madly,” complaining about the tone of the interview.

According to Brockes, Niro said: "All the way through. Negative inference… The whole way through and I’m not doing it. I’m not doing it, darling."

De Niro is certainly not the first star in recent memory to cut an interview short. This summer model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne made headlines with her disastrous and awkward televised back and forth with 'Good Morning Sacramento' anchors, in which the journalists said she should go take a nap.

Legendary comedienne, Joan Rivers also took off a CNN set when asked questions about wearing fur on the cover of her book. Rivers complained of the tone of the interview being filled with judgmental conclusions and told the reporter, she's not fit to carry out an interview with someone who is funny.
