WATCH: Robert De Niro Makes Immigration Joke during Golden Globes Speech

Robert De Niro had tongues wagging at last night's Golden Globe awards in Los Angeles, CA. While accepting his Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, De Niro positively killed it with his speech, during which he compared making movies to having children and even managed to sneak in a joke or two about immigration reform and SB 1070.

"I'm sorry more members of the Hollywood Foreign Press aren't with us tonight but many of them were deported right before the show, along with most of the waiters...and Javier Bardem," laughed De Niro. The New York city based actor may have been joking, but he made his point. Check out the speech below:

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
