Noel Gallagher went for lunch with Robert De Niro and was adorably star struck


Noel Gallagher may be one of his generation's most prolific musicians, but even he seemed to get a bit star struck when going for lunch with Hollywood A-lister Robert De Niro.

The former Oasis rocker posted a couple of pictures on his Instagram page from an al fresco lunch in France he had with the acting great, the two of them looking very chatty indeed after meeting at a mutual friends' house.

He revealed the picture - which showed him deep in conversation with the Taxi Driver star at a cleared-away table and half-drunk glasses of wine - had been taken by his wife Sara MacDonald.

He also didn't try to hide his amazement in his accompanying caption.

The musician gushed: "So we've been down to The South Of France for a few days and at a 17 hour lunch at our friends house THIS..THIS.. Actually happened!!! Photo by Saspg..X."

He shared a second picture and asked his fans on the social networking site to offer up their best captions for a retro "Star Bar".

Many were, of course, loaded with expletives, but one read: "R kid always paid the bill ...."

Another Instagram user joked: "Have you ever even been to Scarborough...?"
