Helen Mirren gets her star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren received her own spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday.

Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and chief exec said: “The ‘queen’s’ star is located right next to that of the ‘king,’ Colin Firth. We’ve kind of made this, in front of the Pig ‘N Whistle, we’ve kind of made this a Brit location.”

Helen Mirren, who received the 2,488th star on the iconic area and is known for her sense of humor, said of her star: “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. Sorry darling,” as she told husband Taylor Hackford, who attended along with the couple’s two sons. “I do love you very much, but, you know …”

The 67-year-old actress continued her speech: “This is such, honestly, the most spectacular day for me. 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, Angelenos and their dogs. But please, please, no chewing gum.”
