Woody Allen has added his handprints to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but not the one in California.

It's in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

Woody was in town filming a new movie that stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.

Local officials said they worked with Woody's crew as he filmed at a newsstand and elsewhere, and the director agreed to add his handprints to Pawtucket's so-called Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The director put his prints and signature into wet cement while filming in neighbouring Providence.

Pawtucket's walk is outside a city diner and includes handprints from Dustin Hoffman and others from the movie American Buffalo, which was filmed in the blue-collar mill city in 1995.

Local officials are still hoping Joaquin and Emma will add their handprints.

"It's our dream that we complete it with the last two stars," Bob Billington of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce said. "We respect everybody's privacy, but we're hoping that we'll be graced with that opportunity."

Woody's handprints are not on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles. Neither are Dustin's, Joaquin's or Emma's.
