He was 81.

Peter O’Toole was joined by family and friends as he placed his hands and feet in cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Introduced as ‘Peter the great’ by Robert Osbourne on behalf of the TCM Classic Film Festival, O’Toole was flanked by his son and daughter as he quipped “it’s been many years since I had an intimate relationship with cement…and that relationship turned out to be not a happy one.” He was joined by a host of stars including Anjelica Huston and Rose McGowan.

 

The 78 year-old actor is best known for his roles in Lawrence of Arabia and Becket, and more recently for his part in the TV show The Tudors. He’s been nominated for eight Academy Awards, but has never won an Oscar, making his the record holder for the most nods without a win. He was however bestowed with an honorary Academy Award in 2003, celebrating his body of work.
