Tarantino receives star on Walk of Fame
Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre. “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.
“The line went all the way down the block and at one point, as I stood in that line, I stood right here.” Samuel L Jackson, who was celebrating his 67th birthday recalled how they both used to walk the boulevard and marvel at the immortal stars honoured there.
“Knowing what kind of cinephile he is, the reverence he holds for these names, I was very, very proud the day I got my star and I know what it means to him, cause of what he thinks and how he reveres this business and the art of filmmaking,” Jackson told the crowd.
