Gianni Russo came through for his first-ever interview with VladTV, and he detailed his family's mafia ties in Italy, including his mafia boss uncle being hanged in Italy. After speaking about having polio as a child and being quarantined, Gianni spoke about moving to America with his family and working for Luciano mob boss Frank Costello when he was 13. It was while working with Costello that Gianni got to know Marilyn Monroe, who Gianni lost his virginity to when he was 16 and Marilyn was 28. The two stayed close throughout the remainder of Monroe's life, and Gianni recalled being with her days before her death, which Gianni says was a murder carried out by Monroe's former lover, Bobby Kennedy.

During the conversation, Gianni spoke about being cast as Carlo Rizzi in The Godfather, which was his first-ever film, and he detailed threatening Marlon Brando at the first rehearsal for the movie. He went on to explain how he was kidnapped and beaten after Pablo Escobar put a hit out on him, and how Escobar stopped the hit after realizing Gianni was in The Godfather. To hear more, including his friendships with Frank Sinatra and Bill Clinton, hit the above clip.

If your a solid guy, I mean really spiked, it just on weekends or Witt people that you think you can gain off, life will take you places. Men take care of other men. These are things you may learn in life if your lucky enough. I’ve got stories you would never believe all around the world and I’m a regular guy from a small Jersey town. I grew up with these Italians and guys like this have no reason to lie to guys like you. Just stay solid, or real as y’all say, plus you gotta be cool, can’t be no pussy as cat, people see through that. Basically someone has to believe you will kill to protect them, they will do the same for you. That’s how it works.

My father had polio in 1912 at age 2. His brother would massage his limbs. They did not expect him to live but one morning he rolled out and crawled into the living area. Many doctors stated he was the worst case they had ever seen that survived. He shredded his clothes until he figured out a way to use homemade crutches. Again, the doctors were stymied. He attended a quaker school, got a degree in English and went on to live a productive inspirational life. He was the greatest father a girl could ever have.

I see he had not turned into a monster using polio as an excuse. I had a father like yours that went through hell and came out squeaky clean and made something out of himself for his family. As a child of 6 in a small sleepy town in Cuba, his father was already in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, he had a household of 10 people that did not work and poverty was a real threat to life. He became rich and lost it all too. As an adult in the US, at the beginning he had a 40hr a week job carrying drums filled with chemicals, went to night school Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, in a different language than his own and graduated, and worked as a waiter Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. He never got drunk, was faithful to mom for 60 years of marriage, and put me in the best private school in Philadelphia being a poor immigrant. There is no end to the stories.

What an AMAZING character and life, Gianni! I'm saving this interview to watch multiple times. Congratulations to the interviewer on finding him and what a coup to get an interview, but hell, man, you're so underwhelmed by the AMAZING things he is telling you. You do so much so well, that if you will allow yourself to be more emotionally present you'll have something exceptional. Don't preload the followup question, let it flow naturally. Great photography too - at 72, the guy is still great looking and very fashionable - a natural alpha male - looks, charisma, machisma and insoucisance. It's surprising to hear a life story from a killer, mobster and to like the guy and be on his side.

One fascinating narrative of a 20th & now 21st century life. Russo comes across as so genuine and self-deprecating - Amazed me from start to finish. Arrived here after watching Mark Shaw's talk about his definitive work on the murder of Marilyn Monroe on The Commonwealth Club of California (Shaw also wrote about the deaths of Dorothy Kilgallen and RFK) and the facts intersect in places that make that investigation fairly plausible. But this man has an amazing old New York way of talking that is so engaging and magnetic - really enjoyed his views and hearing about his time.

He tells fantastic stories...I love that. Maybe not all true, but I prefer to believe them. I have a daughter, who happened to be in Las Vegas at a medical convention. Probably was in the late 1980s when a guy sat down next talking to her. He told her that he was Sonny in The Godfather movie. She was totally unimpressed, but I would have loved meeting him. He is so interesting to say the least. I love the man!

Thank you for your fabulous and riveting interview, he's a charismatic storyteller, it must be fascinating to interview old-school Mafia members and associates. Unlike other comments, believe him but with a proviso of potential exaggeration, however he wasn't a made-man for the Mafia, which is probably while he's still alive. I do know he's spot on regards M. M's death. His enditements can be googled and checked. I am interested so I shall research him before accusations of him of lying. He was also Carlo in the Godfather film so it seems unintelligent to make a sweeping generalisation as to his account of life experiences. Xxx

When I was a kid(under 10), I used to say my grandpa was either Mr. Frank Costello, or if I was being bullied by a group of kids I would tell them to go look up my Grandpa, Mr. Vincent Gigante. i wasnt allowed to see my own dad or his side of the family. I was not afraid to stand my ground, but I also had a BIG nose and a really nice tan. So I said I was Italian. I didn’t know any difference and no personal family history. I was Italian, a skinny little white kid, a little crazy when it came to fighting and going straight for the big kid that opened their mouth. Oh and that we had to change our names to stay protected. I wish I didn’t do it because I feel like I took from them in a way. I loved the family bond, the way that they could handle themselves without getting loud and acting like a peacock and the way the older men taught the younger boy the right way to handle himself and even to stay away from that sort of life. My favorite thing was the respect. I learned at a very young age to pay respect to my elders. l could not understand how kids could cuss at teachers and take things that didn’t be;one to them. Even to this day it’s something that really upsets me to see, especially if I’m not allowed to do anything about it. I guess being a kid in the 80’s had different standards than today. Best of luck. And best of health during this crazy virus crud.

All I can say is this, Liars have bad memories, their stories change over time . I believe Russo is telling truths because he never waivers.

@Avinash Singh Mr. Singh, he sure does tell a heck of a story doesn't he! I couldn't keep that level of detail in my head for ten minutes. Lol. I'm sure you are right. I have never met an Indian that was easily fooled over. Appreciate your response sir.

“So there I was at the Last Supper. I saw Jesus staring down Judas the whole night. I says, ‘Christ! Will you relax already?’ Got a big laugh from the Apostles and soon that nickname stuck. A month and a half later, he came back from the dead just to tell me off. Can you believe it?” - Gianni Russo

I really enjoyed this interview! Not only is Mr. Russo handsome, but he has also had an intriguing life. He had me spellbound from the beginning to the end of the interview.

Its unbelievable how most can't or won't remember the hardships or failures of life. To lose the ability to empathize with others bec afraid of the idea of reliving what hurts. I rather relive than to live with myself if I don't.

This man implied he'd seen Some Like It Hot (1959) many time before he'd first met Marilyn, then said their alleged first meeting was in 1953 when he was sixteen years old. Later he referred to Marilyn's infamous Cal-Neva weekend saying she'd left Monday and "they" killed her Tuesday. August 4, 1962 was a Saturday. On a different note, how can Oswald come out of the restroom of the ship you're on when, at the same time according to the time line of his story's set up, he would have been in the hands of the Dallas police? It's difficult to believe this man.

I think he said when he was 16 when she banged him. That puts him at least in 1959 as he was born late 1943. If he said he was 16 in 1953 then he made a mistake he obviously meant 1959.

I see all sorts of people poking fun at this man. Facts are he is from where he’s from, he was in two of the most iconic movies of all time and I LOVE hearing him talk. He is truly an amazing story teller and for once I don’t care if he is lying or not. He is charming and has the memory of an elephant.
