The 88-year-old comedy legend sunk his hands into the cement outside the TCL Chinese Theatre, and he unveiled a disturbing secret while being honored on Sept. 8.
Mel Brooks wore a prosthesis to the Hollywood Cement Ceremony on Sept. 8, leaving a memorable and lasting impression on the historic forecourt. The veteran comedian, 88, came to the event with six fingers on his left hand!
Mel Brooks Has 11 Fingers?
The eleven-fingers stunt proved Mel, who wore a white suit and floral tie, still has a great sense of humor.
“I desperately need to wash my hands,” he tweeted after getting his foot and handprints cemented outside the iconic theatre.
“Hands are clean but the shoes will never be the same. Now I’m off to tape @ConanOBrien tonight #teamcoco,” he later added.
“I want to thank you all for being here and being part of the wonderful charade,” Mel told the crowd at the event, E! News reports. “I really love it.”
Mel Brooks: A Hollywood Success Story
Mel, a very successful film director, is on a short list of entertainers who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award!

Congrulations, Mel! We hope there are many more years of laughs ahead. We’d love to give him a high-five, but we assume it’d be called a high-six!
