"I had my Bar Mitzvah today at the wall. Finally I'm a man," the boyish-faced Arquette tweeted.

Arquette, whose mother is Jewish and father converted to Islam, was in the Holy Land filming a segment for the Travel Channel series Mile High.

During his visit to the wall, the Scream star donned a prayer shawl known as a tallit, tefillin (the small leather black boxes) and a kippah, as is the custom among observant Jews, and read from the Torah in a ceremony right there at the historic site that's traditionally reserved for those turning 13 years old.

Per vosizneias.com, Arquette subsequently received a bar mitzvah certificate from the local rabbi.

Better late than never!
