Raging Bull star Robert De Niro turned into exactly that when Reese Witherspoon dropped out of their upcoming movie, The Intern, and left him without a leading lady!” begins a badly written story from Star.

A supposed “industry insider” tells the tabloid, “Bob is angry. He wished she’d given him a heads up before she quit.”

The mag notes that Witherspoon pulled out of the comedy due to a scheduling conflict, and claims that the star “wants to focus on scoring an Academy Award for her upcoming role in Wild.”

Wait, Witherspoon has already started campaigning for an Oscar for 2015, for a movie that hasn’t yet been released?

Of course not.

Anyway, Star further alleges that De Niro “begged Reese to stay on, but she ignored him.”

No, he didn’t.

A rep for De Niro tells Gossip Cop the mag’s report is complete “bullsh*t.”
