Robert De Niro has had his hand and footprints immortalized in cement.
The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actor became the latest film icon to have his prints enshrined outside Hollywood's historic TCL Chinese Theatre - formerly known as Grauman's Chinese Theatre - in a ceremony celebrating his career on Monday (04.02.13).
The 69-year-old star - whose impressive filmography includes 'Casino', 'Raging Bull' and 'Taxi Driver' - told the crowd: "They say everyone in the film industry has three homes: The home where they live, the home where their first wife lives, and Hollywood. I love New York and I am proud to be a citizen of Hollywood. Thank you for this honor and thank you for making me feel at home here."
The excited actor mistakenly dated his cement plaque '2/14/13' (February 14), but representatives for the TLC Chinese Theatre have corrected the date to February 4.
Robert is currently celebrating a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nomination for his role in the Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper-starring comedy about mental illness. It marks the actor's first Oscar nomination since 1991 for 'Cape Fear'.
