How do you get an Oscar-winning actor to attend your party? Well, it appears if you're a soccer enthusiast all you have to do is throw a viewing party when team USA competes in the 2014 World Cup, and you may have some surprise celebrity guests in attendance.

Robert De Niro is apparently such a massive fan that he crashed a stranger's party in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, to ensure he would not miss out on watching the U.S. soccer team compete against Germany on Thursday, the Business Insider reports.

So why didn't the actor just head home and watch the game? According to the publication, De Niro was in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill neighborhood filming his new movie The Intern and didn't want to miss out on the game.

However, the Silver Linings Playbook actor didn't completely gate crash because according to a neighbor, Warner Bros. emailed the partygoers in the apartment building to ask if De Niro could attend.

"Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12pm. Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?" the email read.

However, De Niro wasn't going to be boring and watch the excitement all on his own. According to the neighbor, the actor found a house of people watching the game and decided to join in.

"We got another email from a neighbor saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them," the neighbor added.
