We thought we'd seen every side of Robert De Niro, but clearly not.

The Oscar winner and acting legend has been getting technological by using Snapchat, fulfilling all your dreams of seeing De Niro as a puppy.

De Niro is given a crash course in the app by filmmaker Alex Berry, one of the finalists in Tribeca Film Festival's Snapchat Shorts competition, who helped him test out Snapchat's wide range of filters.

Naturally, that included the flower crown which Berry promised De Niro would "make you look beautiful".

Decide for yourself.

De Niro might have starred in a series of dodgy comedies – hello, Dirty Grandpa – but he's actually pretty happy to take the piss out of himself.

He was one of a dozen celebrities to feature in Jimmy Kimmel's Oscars edition of Mean Tweets, even going so far as to record an extended edition of him reacting to angry tweets about himself on camera.

De Niro's responses included him believing one of them was "some little f**king 15-year-old with nothing to do in your life", and this classic response to someone saying he should "eat shit and die"...

"You eat shit and die you worthless piece of shit, because you probably are a worthless piece of shit. I feel that way about you. So f**k you," he hit back.
