It’s about time right..?? Tim Burton has finally been honoured with a hand and footprint ceremony on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in front of the historic Chinese Theatre.
One of his greatest friends Winona Ryder, introduced the filmmaker to the crowd and thanked him for kickstarting her career.
Honored: Winona Ryder joined Tim Burton as he placed his hand and foot prints in cement in front of Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre on Thursday
The actress said: ‘Tim understands the human heart in a way I have never seen certainly on screen.’
She went on: ‘He knows the pain of the misunderstood, of the odd and even of the mad. He celebrates them in a way that is both totally unique, so very, very tender, sometimes terrifying and very often hilarious.’
Ryder is set to team up with Burton and Michael Keaton again for a long in the works sequel to 1988’s Beetlejuice and I am so excited!!
Winona worked with Burton on his 1988’s Beetlejuice and 1990’s Edward Scissorhands and said the filmmaker ‘knows the pain of the misunderstood, of the odd and even of the mad’
