LOS ANGELES – The hands that were replaced with cutlery in "Edward Scissorhands" and wore gloves in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" are now immortalized in concrete.
Johnny Depp (search) signed his name and placed his handprints and footprints in wet concrete in front of the Grauman's Chinese Theatre (search) on Hollywood Boulevard.
"So this is weird," Deep said as hundreds of fans watched the ceremony Friday. "I mean, to say that this is overwhelming is probably the understatement of the millennium."
The sidewalk honor coincided with the release of Depp's latest film, the animated "Corpse Bride," which opened in limited release Friday. The movie expands to wide release next weekend.
It was his fifth collaboration with director Tim Burton (search), who also directed "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Edward Scissorhands."
Depp is currently filming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" and "Pirates of the Caribbean 3."
