Russell Crowe gets Walk of Fame star

Russell Crowe with his family on Hollywood BoulevardRussell Crowe has been given a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. The Oscar-winning actor – who has previously refused offers to have the prestigious honor – was accompanied by wife Danielle Spencer and their two sons, Charles, six, and three-year-old Tennyson, as he was presented with a plaque to commemorate the unveiling of his star on Hollywood Boulevard. Accepting his star, Russell said: “Next to Sir Anthony Hopkins, that’s not a bad spot. It’s a nice piece of real estate. There’s no place I would rather be, apart from with my family, than on a movie set on a feature film – particularly those first few days when the excitement and the freshness is still there. Anyway, as I said, thanks for the privilege and I’ll always be grateful for it. Cheers.” As well as his family, the 46-year-old Gladiator star was also joined by former colleagues and friends, including director Ron Howard, producer Brian Glazer, actor Sam Worthington and talk show host Jay Leno. Leno described him as “an all-round good guy who just happens to be one of the greatest actors in the world.”

    What a great movie and story The Gladiator Have watched it several times. Now looking forward to Russel playing in Robin Hood. Personally I like his acting and I think he deserves the star .

    one of the most deserving actors of all time…not one, but numerous outstanding roles to date…agree totally Mary, on both Gladiator and Robin Hood!

    loved him in A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man and The Insider, amongst many many other good films…
