Actor Depp gets Hollywood honour
Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp has joined scores of other stars on the Forecourt
Actor Johnny Depp's hand and footprints have been immortalised in concrete on Hollywood Boulevard.

The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory star told hundreds of watching fans that it felt "weird" to be there.

Depp's girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, was at the ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre with their two children.

"To say that this is overwhelming is probably the understatement of the millennium," Depp said.

He joined other luminaries, such as Sofia Loren and Tom Hanks, in the collection of Hollywood star prints on the Forecourt of the Stars in Los Angeles.

The ceremony coincided with the release of Depp's latest film, the animated Corpse Bride, by Tim Burton.

Depp is currently filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean 3.
