Austrian actor Christoph Waltz did something many dream of, but only a very selected few, and even fewer Austrians, achieve: He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday December 1st 2014.
His star, the 2536th, is located in front of the historic Musso & Frank Grill on the 6000 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
The two-time Academy Award winner was thrust into the international spotlight by Quentin Tarantino, who cast him in his now legendary role in “Inglourious Basterds”.
The Austrian said: “My heart is not just a little bit throbbing with pride, it is bursting,”
