Hollywood star Christoph Waltz is to become an Austrian citizen, it has emerged.
The federal government agreed today (Weds) that the Vienna-born actor - who bagged an Academy Award for his performance in Quentin Tarantinos "Inglourious Basterds" - will receive an Austrian passport later this year.
His German father applied for his son to become a German after his birth in Vienna.
The 53-year-old German has been annoyed by questions about his nationality.
Asked whether he felt Viennese, Waltz said recently: "I was born in Vienna, grew up in Vienna, went to school in Vienna, graduated in Vienna, studied in Vienna, started acting in Vienna - and there would be a few further Viennese links. How much more Austrian do you want it?"
Waltz recently finished shooting "The Green Hornet" - an action film by Michel Gondry based on a popular TV and radio series - and "Water for Elephants", a drama based on the novel of the same name by Sara Gruen. He will also star as Cardinal Richelieu in an upcoming cinema adaptation of the "Three Musketeers" story.
Showbiz magazines have speculated he has been in the running to play Natascha Kampuschs abductor Wolfgang Priklopil in an upcoming movie produced by Bernd Eichinger ("The NeverEnding Story").
