Depp's hand and foot accolade
09:30 21 September 2005
Johnny Depp has had his hand and footprints set in cement outside Hollywood's iconic Chinese Theatre.
The 'Pirate of the Caribbean' actor admitted he felt "weird" having his prints immortalised alongside those of legendary stars Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, Bing Crosby and Judy Garland.
The heartthrob, who was accompanied by his girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, and their two children, said: "To say that this is overwhelming is probably the understatement of the millennium."
Other stars who have their hand and footprints outside the Hollywood Boulevard theatre include Steven Spielberg, Shirley Temple, Tom Hanks and Elizabeth Taylor.
Meanwhile, Johnny's hands are allegedly so feminine movie bosses are searching for a hand double for his role in 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.
Producers reportedly are on the hunt for a gnarly-handed actor to replace Depp's "girly man hands" in his role as swash-buckling pirate in the hit movie sequel.
Although a spokesperson for the film has denied the claims, a source claimed to America's MSNBC website: "Johnny has very feminine hands with long, slender fingers. It's posed a bit of a problem."
