Star quality: Helen Mirren honoured on Hollywood Walk Of Fame


Helen Mirren has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

She described the occasion as "the most spectacular day for me" and joked, "I'm 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," she added.

Dame Helen has won an Academy Award, four Baftas, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards, and two Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards.
