Robert De Niro was immortalized in cement on Monday before he went to the Oscar nominee luncheon. He put his handprints, footprints and signature in the wet cement to be placed alongside other iconic film stars.
He's currently nominated for an Academy Award for his role in "Silver Linings Playbook." It would be the "Goodfellas" and "Taxi Driver" star's first in over 20 years.
