Robert De Niro cemented into Hollywood history

Robert De Niro`s hand and footprints Robert De Niro, 69, had his hand and footprints immortalized in cement. The Silver Linings Playbook actor has become 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 yesterday. The two-time Oscar winner 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." Robert, who is best known for making gangster movies, then joked to the crowd: "You know, Joe Pesci (his Goodfellas co-star] always said I'd end up with my feet in cement!" Stars including Billy Crystal and Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell paid tribute to the veteran actor, who was accompanied by his proud wife, Grace Hightower. 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.

    I would like to see the Lohan family fitted with cement boots and taken swimming deep in the ocean. LOL. Just kidding.

    I thought that ceremony would have happened long ago. Good for him. As everything regarding De Niro accolades are: Deserved.
