    We Gave Robert De Niro And Anne Hathaway The BFF Test And Here's What Happened

    We put the stars of The Intern to the test.

    The thought of having seniors intern at a fast-paced fashion internet startup run by a staff of twenty- and thirtysomethings might sound slightly insane, but that's exactly what happens in the new heartwarming comedy The Intern. Anne Hathaway stars as Jules, the founder of an online fashion site who forms an unexpected bond with Ben, her new 70-year-old intern played by Robert De Niro. By the end of the film you'll laugh, cry, and become infinitely more obsessed with both of the Oscar-winning stars.

    When we got the chance to sit down with Anne and Robert, we put them to the test to see how well they really know each other. As you can probably guess, it was pretty damn hilarious.
