Dame Helen Mirren receives Hollywood Walk Of Fame star
With a new year comes a new raft of A-List actors to be welcomed into the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The first person of 2013 to receive such an honour is Dame Helen Mirren. To be frank, we're surprised it's taken her this long to stick her pawprints on the famous stretch of footpath, considering she's already a Dame 'n all.
Speaking at the event - where she was joined by her husband - the Dame cracked a few jokes about how fitting it is that her star is side by side with Colin Firth's and how much it means to her to be walked upon; great GSOH eh? After being introduced by writer/director David Mamet, Mirren said: "I couldn't be prouder and more happy that I'm actually going to finally lie next to Colin Firth - something I've been wanting to do for a very long time... I'm so very, very proud to be henceforth walked upon, have fries dropped upon - maybe even be peed upon by future generations of tourists, Angelinos and their dogs. But please, please, no chewing gum."
Who else do you think deserves to be inaugurated into this elite group?
