Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese recently opened up about their partnership that goes 50 years back.

The lethal actor-director duo is known in Hollywood for their strong and deep-rooted professional and personal friendship.

In a new issue for PEOPLE magazine, Robert recalled that he has known Martin since they were teenagers.

“We met at a Christmas dinner after I saw Who’s That Knocking [at My Door], and I said, ‘That was a really terrific movie. He said, ‘I have the script.’ And Mean Streets was at that time called Season of the Witch, and so that’s how it started,” the 80-year-old actor shared.

For his part, Martin gushed over Robert’s versatility of taking on whatever role he wants to play.

“When Bob commits to a role, he starts digging in with research, questions about absolutely everything, from what the character wears to what he eats for breakfast,” the 81-year-old director said.

He continued, “At this point, I treasure the sheer longevity, the shared experience and knowledge,” he says. “The trust. The love. And also, the desire to explore together, to go further.”
