Warrior director Gavin O’Connor said: “Nick is a man of many colours, he was a felon, manufactured draft cards in the 1960s.
“Then he became an actor. He locked himself in a room and devoured all the great plays, treaded the boards across the country performing in regional theatre. Nick was a gypsy and then he accidentally became a movie star.”
O’Connor praised Nolte as a “master of his craft” with a voice “that sounds like he’s swallowed a bag of nails”, adding that he is “crazy to the bone”.
Taking to the stage after it was declared the day would be named after him in Hollywood, the actor said: “Nick Nolte Day I can barely get through one myself.”

With his characteristic gruffness, he said through a thick beard that he was “deeply honoured” and praised the Walk of Fame for paving Hollywood Boulevard with a history of the actors who have passed through the street.
