Robert De Niro cements starry honor

'Silver Linings' thesp joins Pitt, Clooney in Chinese Theater forecourt

One could argue that Robert De Niro has already left an impression on the Chinese Theater, but the star will make things more permanent on Monday.

The “Silver Linings Playbook” thesp will leave his handprint and footprint in the theater’s famous cement during a ceremony on Monday morning.

Honoring De Niro is “enthusiastically lauded by an honorary committee of filmmakers including Al Pacino, Martin Scorsese, Joe Pesci, Irwin Winkler, Harvey Keitel and Morgan Freeman,” according to a press release announcing De Niro’s ceremony on Thursday.

The Hollywood theater’s handprint-footprint tradition dates back to 1928, a year after the Chinese opened. Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks were among the first celebs to be honored. Recent ceremonies have honored Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Jennifer Aniston.

A Chinese company bought naming rights to the venue in January, changing its official name from Grauman’s Chinese Theater to TCL Chinese Theater.
