Although Drena doesn’t have Robert’s genes, she certainly has some of his talents. Over the years, she’s worked as a model, DJ, fashion consultant, and even ventured into acting.

Speaking about her personal life, not much is known about it, but what we know is that she has a son, Leandro De Niro Rodriguez.

It’s too early for the young man to decide what he wants to do professionally, but he might follow his famous grandpa’s career path.

Leo is starting to make a name for himself

Drena has dabbled in acting since the ’90s, but she hasn’t had any major roles yet. Her latest appearance in a feature film was her role as Paulette Stone in A Star Is Born.

You may or may not remember that scene, but Leo also appeared in the film alongside his mom!

It’s easy to assume that a career in acting is a given for someone born in an artistic family, but we’ll have to wait and see if Leo wants to be like grandpa.
