Martin Scorsese urges people to not watch ‘The Irishman’ on a phone

"She's terrific and it resonates", De Niro added.

Later during the film, Paquin's character asks De Niro's character about Hoffa's disappearance, and asks why De Niro's character hasn't reached out to Hoffa's wife, as they were friends.

One Twitter user called Paquin "underused" in the film, while another said she "deserves better" as an award-winning actress.

De Niro slapped down the criticism, however, and told USA Today that her line was important and her character "powerful". However, it's when Peggy's an adult that her silent condemnation of her father, who's been working for the Bufalino crime family and hurting people on her behalf since she was little, becomes so much stronger, especially by the time she utters those seven words.

It's a pivotal moment in The Irishman - Frank later reveals that Peggy "stopped talking to [him] that day" and "disappeared" from his life forever - but some viewers have criticized Scorsese for using Paquin only in this one scene. If he wanted the character to be such a small role, cast a smaller actress.

This week, De Niro finally stepped in to defend Scorsese's long-gestating mob drama. "Maybe in other scenes, there could've been some interaction between Frank and her possibly, but that's how it was done".

De Niro weighed in on the controversy surrounding his colleague's lack of dialogue over the holiday weekend, contending that Paquin's performance packs a "powerful" -albeit quiet -punch.

But the short speech was not enough for those who have followed Paquin since she became the second-youngest victor in Oscar history at just 11 years old in 1994 for her work in "The Piano".

Some say it was distracting - others say it was great - but Kevin seems to be alluding to the fact these fellas might've made this a little late in their careers.

Rodrigo Prieto, Scorsese' cinematographer, who has been performing camera tests for the movie, said the principal photography will start in March 2020. "Nobody was doing any 'ordering, '" she tweeted.

The Irishman is now streaming on Netflix.
