Robert De Niro wants to break the record for the number
of Oscars handed to one actor so he can give each of his five children a
statuette.

The Hollywood icon is the proud recipient of two Academy
Awards, one for Best Actor for the 1980’s film Raging Bull and the other for
Best Actor in a Supporting Role in The Godfather: Part II.

Robert’s been shortlisted a further four times, but the
Goodfellas star hasn’t given up hope of winning a record-breaking five Oscars
so he can pass them down to his kids.

The A-list actor tells Britain’s The Sunday Times, “If I
had one to give to each of my kids that would be fine. But I don’t and I can’t
give one to one and not to the other.”

Katharine Hepburn and Clint Eastwood are the actors who
have won the most Academy Awards, with four each.
