It's a scene that's been five years in the making. Acclaimed Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci finally got to see his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. He said he'd only found out about the star from the friend. SOUNDBITE: Bernardo Bertolucci, saying (Italian): "I knew about the star because some teenager daughters of friends took a picture by the star and sent it to me. I'm glad I made it here, and the thing I like is that people can walk all over me." 73-year-old Bertolucci's repertoire includes "Last Tango in Paris," "1900," and "The Last Emperor," for which he won two Oscars. But while some say Tinseltown may have been transformed since Bertolucci's early works, he said he still sees signs of its golden past. SOUNDBITE: Bernardo Bertolucci, saying (Italian): "I think that Hollywood is still the same as it ever was. Its strength is that, despite becoming high tech, it still retains its connection with its history, like Musso and Frank's, which to me is classic Hollywood." Bertolucci's was the 2,513th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
