Tarantino receives star on Walk of Fame

Quentin Tarantino

Director Quentin Tarantino received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday.

The director left imprints of his hands and feet in cement at Hollywood's Chinese Theatre in the week that his new movie, The Hateful Eight, opens in cinemas.

"I wanted to put my hands and footprints in the Grauman's Chinese courtyard way before I ever had a career, so this is something I wanted to do my whole life," the director said.

Tarantino, 52, was a passionate movie fan before becoming a director and worked as an usher in movie theatres. He has won two screen-writing Oscars for Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained.
