Quentin Tarantino has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre.
The Hollywood director was joined at the December 21 ceremony by the cast of his latest movie Hateful Eight including Samuel L. Jackson.
“Wow, I guess I must have become a big shot,” he told the crowd, recalling the first few times he had walked the stretch of sidewalk that would bear his star.
Samuel L. Jackson, who was celebrating his 67th birthday, introduced Quentin Tarantino, recalling how they both used to walk the boulevard and marvel at the immortal stars honored there.
Quentin Tarantino said he was only 7-year-old when he was taken to see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid at the famous Chinese Theatre.
His 9th theatrical release, The Hateful Eight, has already collected a Golden Globe nomination ahead of its Christmas release and December 31 expansion.
Quentin Tarantino appeared jubilant as he posed for photos and signed autographs, saying: “I take it seriously that I am a member of this community, I am a member of this town.
“I’m happy to have my star on the Walk of Fame with all the other people who have done a wonderful job in this town.”
