Christopher Walken, 80, spotted at Robert DeNiro's star-studded 80th birthday bash in rare public outing | The Sun

HOLLYWOOD legend Christopher Walken made a rare public appearance at Robert DeNiro's star-studded 80th birthday party in New York.

The Pulp Fiction star was spotted leaving the bash at swanky restaurant Locanda Verde with his wife Georgianne, 79, and was immediately swamped by dozens of fans.

Christopher cheerfully obliged the autograph hunters as security attempted to to subdue the crowd.

The film icon, who starred alongside DeNiro in 1978 film The Deer Hunter, looked in good health, and wore a navy jacket and trousers which he teamed with New Balance trainers.

One of his most recent projects was appearing alongsde Stephen Merchant on The Outlaws on BBC One, filmed in Bristol during the pandemic.

Merchant became good friends with the actor and revealed last year that he is a technophobe.

He said about the legendary star: "He has a landline phone and he has a fax, but there's no cell phone or iPads or things like that – so whether he's seen the show I don't know."

Despite shunning technology and probably never having used zoom, Merchant also told how his trip to America to try talking Christopher into joining the cast was like a "zoom conversation in person".

He said the legend would pause for thought before speaking again and it was like he was constantly "buffering".

He added: "I went out to see him in Connecticut where he made me an omelette.
