Our photographers spotted Robert out by Bono's boat playing with his and the U2 frontman's kids in the waters off the shore of Lerins Island. Bono spent the afternoon relaxing on the deck, while the usually dour DeNiro seemed pleased as punch at the chance to play with the kids, taking them for rides on his Jet-Ski and helping push their banana boat (no, really!). Hey, Robert may act like a tough guy in the movies - but in real life, he's a Goodfella!
