Scorsese started his career with the so-called "movie brats" of the 70s; his friends Brian De Palma, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. It wasn't until his eighth Oscar nomination after an almost 40-year career that he won Best Director for his film, The Departed.

Scorsese loves to collaborate with the same actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Harvey Keitel. In fact, there are only three of his films to date where he hasn't reunited with someone from a previous film of his: Kundun, Bringing Out the Dead and Hugo. To hear about his collaborations with De Niro and Pesci, watch the video above.
