Paul Rudd receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Paul Rudd was "humbled beyond belief" to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 46-year-old actor unveiled his star yesterday (01.07.15) in a ceremony attended by his 'Ant-Man' co-star Michael Douglas, wife Julie and their children, Jack, nine, and Darby, five.

At the event on Hollywood Boulevard, Rudd told the crowd: "I remember being a kid and walking this boulevard and reading the names and thinking about what so many other millions of people thought about, which is, 'Who's that?'

"The fact that millions of people are going to be able to now see me and ask that same question is humbling beyond belief.

"In the last week I've made a specific point to take a mental and emotional snapshot of what has been going on in my life. There have been some incredible things that I really want to treasure and getting a star on the walk of fame is the high water mark."

Michael introduced Paul to the crowd and joked he thought the actor was homeless the first time they met.

He added: "The next time I saw him the trench coat he had been wearing was gone and he was so ripped."

Paul said of Michael: "We all have a list of actors we would kill to work with and Michael Douglas is at the top of my list and has been for a long, long time.

"I can't believe that I worked with him and that he knows my name and that he is here today. It makes no sense to me at all that Michael Douglas is here."
