By The Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) ' Robert De Niro helped revitalize lower Manhattan after the 9/11 terror attacks but says he has no plans to go to ground zero on the 10th anniversary.

The New York resident was in Toronto on Saturday for the premiere for his film, "The Killer Elite." He says he feels the ground zero ceremony is "for certain dignitaries and the families."

He returned home to New York for Sunday's anniversary.

A resident of the Tribeca neighborhood that housed the World Trade Center, De Niro was instrumental in starting the Tribeca Film Festival, which brought business back to the devastated area.

De Niro produced a prerecorded address commemorating the day that will be played at halftime when the New York Jets open their season against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night.
