Ben Stiller cemented his place in Hollywood history, literally, by placing his hands and feet in cement in the courtyard of the historic TCL Chinese Theater.
The comic actor and director was joined at the honorary ceremony by his wife, Christine Taylor, as well as his good friend Tom Cruise, who introduced him to the audience.
Stiller has directed and appeared in "Tropic Thunder," "Zoolander," "The Cable Guy," and "Reality Bites."
The actor joked about having his hands and feet imprinted next to so many screen legends.
SOUNDBITE: Ben Stiller, actor and director, saying (English):
"I'm humbled and I'm touched, and I'm very proud to know that wherever I go, and long after I'm dead, my footprints will be here in Hollywood being stood on by a fake 'Shrek' posing with tourists for a dollar. Thank you very much."
His next directed film is "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," in which Stiller also stars, and is a remake of the 1947 classic Danny Kaye film about a man looking for excitement and meaning in his mundane life.
"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" releases in theaters on December 25.
