Robert De Niro & Danny Devito plea with New Yorkers to "stay home"

Ben Stiller

He then smiled and pointed to his eyes and then the camera, before he added: "I'm watching you".

The last line of his post seemed to be a wink at his character from the 2000 movie "Meet the Parents" in which he plays a former Central Intelligence Agency agent who intimidates his daughter's new boyfriend, played by Ben Stiller.

As part of the campaign, celebrities including Robert De Niro, Danny DeVito, Ben Stiller, Alec Baldwin and La La Anthony sent videos of themselves at home to reinforce the Governor's message that young people must stay home not for themselves but to help protect older and more vulnerable New Yorkers. "I'm asking you from the bottom of my heart, all over the state of NY, stay home", Danny asked in ernest. "Not just to protect ourselves, but to protect others and all the other older people you love", De Niro says in the video, which was shared online by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

"Hi everybody, it's Danny DeVito, and I'm asking you from the bottom of my heart, all over the state of NY, stay home", DeVito said in his PSA.

"We all need to stay home", "The Irishman" star tells his fellow New Yorkers in the video.

The Twins star added: "I mean everybody". "I mean everybody. I mean, we got this virus, this pandemic, and, you know, young people can get it, and they can transmit it to old people and the next thing you know".

In New York City, police have been given the authority to break up large public gatherings, with Mayor Bill de Blasio mulling over closing streets on Sunday to further encourage residents to stay home. "All we're trying to do is slow the spread, but it will spread".
