Franco gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
IANS  [ Fri, Mar 8, 2013 ]
Los Angeles, March 9 (IANS) Actor James Franco has received the honour of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame here,

He was honoured with the 2,492nd sidewalk plaque at a special ceremony, where guest speakers included funnyman Seth Rogen and Franco's "Oz the Great and Powerful" director Sam Raimi, reports dailystar.co.uk.

Franco was almost in tears as he thanked his family, friends and colleagues.

"I wish that I could put a bunch of names on this star because this is a collaborative business. The people behind the scenes, the people who have been there for me, all the way through, if I could, I'd put all your names on there. Thank you, and I'll always remember this," he said.

His mother Betsy, actor brother Dave and "Oz the Great and Powerful" co-star Joey King were also present at the event to lend their support.

Raimi poked fun at Franco for his wide-ranging interests.

"Working with James over the years, I've learned many things about him. James is a teacher, a poet, a sculptor, an actor, a director, a writer, a producer, a basket weaver - the thing goes on and on for days! Seems like we're always discovering James' next endeavour.

"Today we join the rest of the world to honour you in your achievements with a much-deserved star on Hollywood's Walk Of Fame, a star made from marble - which you yourself have hewn from a mountain, from brass that you have smelted," he added.
