EDWARD SCISSORHANDS star Johnny Depp's handprints and footprints have been immortalised in concrete in front of Hollywood's legendary Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

The sidewalk honour coincided with the release of Depp's latest film, the animated Corpse Bride, which opened on limited release on Friday (16SEP05).

Depp said at the ceremony, "So this is weird. I mean, to say that this is overwhelming is probably the understatement of the millennium."
