Goodfellas: Behind-the-Scenes Secrets

De Niro’s Bling

If you’re going to play the part, you have to look the part — and that is exactly what Robert De Niro did in this gangster classic. As you can see in the picture above, De Niro’s James Conway is sporting a pinky ring and watch. What isn’t obvious from this image, however, is that De Niro’s character was given a new ring and watch to match whichever suit he was wearing in a scene. According to those involved with the film, De Niro was able to pick out the jewelry he would wear while shooting.
