Scarlett was honoured with the 2,470th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday and she thanked her lucky stars to be immortalised in cement.
She told fans and friends she was “over the moon” about her latest accolade as she unveiled her plaque, confessing she never dared to dream she’s be among the 2,500 famous folk feted on Hollywood Boulevard.
“This industry in which I was practically raised has been so impossibly kind to me. There’s never a day where I go to set and don’t thank my lucky stars to simply be a working actor.”
Her mother, grandmother and sister joined her and The Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner at the ceremony. Renner paid tribute to her, stating: “Scarlett is built like a classic Hollywood movie star. However, it is only betrayed by her no-nonsense attitude, her sharp wit and self-deprecating sense of humour that truly defines her alluring charm. [...] For six months she continuously threw me around, beat me, stepped on me, and wiped the floor with my dignity and self-respect every day all with a smile on her face. But it was her emotional intelligence and commitment to truth that allowed for me to be a better actor and, as a friend, made me a better man.”
We can only congratulate our girl for this. It’s something huge for any actor, to have her own Star in Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame, and at such a young age! We’re thrilled for her. You can read her whole speech here *, and check out tons of pics in our gallery.
