Double Oscar winner Robert De Niro was honored Monday by placing his hands and feet in concrete in front of Hollywood's historic Chinese Theatre.
"(Actor) Joe Pesci always said I'd end up with my feet in cement. I don't think this is what he had in mind...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'm proud to be a citizen of Hollywood. Thank you for this honor and thank you for making me feel at home here," joked De Niro, 69.
De Niro is running for a third Oscar this month for his supporting role in the comedy "Silver Linings Playbook."
The film director David O. Russell praised De Niro's sensitivity in taking on the role of the father of a bipolar son in the movie.
De Niro won Oscars for his lead role in "Raging Bull" and his supporting part in "The Godfather II."
The Chinese Theatre celebrated De Niro's acting history lining his imprints next to those of the iconic Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
