British director Ridley Scott was immortalized in Hollywood on Wednesday, as his hands and feet were cast in cement outside the fabled TCL Chinese Theatre. The ceremony comes the same week as the U.S. release of his latest movie, 'Alien: Covenant.' Joined at the celebration by star of classic Scott film 'Blade Runner', actor Harrison Ford, Scott said he was thrilled to receive the honour at the legendary site. (SOUNDBITE) (English) RIDLEY SCOTT SAYING: "I walked past it everyday and I used to walk around here and I never ever could have dreamed that this was happening right now. So this is beyond an honor, it is a dream. And never a dream because I never expected this." Despite turning 80 this year, Scott says he never gets tired of working in the film industry. (SOUNDBITE) (English) RIDLEY SCOTT SAYING: "I had to learn a lot but I'm still learning and still curious after 40 years in film which honestly felt like a blink in time for me. I don't feel I've ever worked a day in my life, I think to me it's one big holiday, I just adore it." Celebrating with Scott were 'Alien: Covenant' cast members Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride - as well as hundreds of fans. Scott's other hit films include 'Alien', 'Gladiator' and 'Thelma & Louise'. 'Alien: Covenant' is released in the US on May 19.
