Kate Winslet receives Walk of Fame star

Kate Winslet received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday (03.17.14).

The 38-year-old actress was honored with the accolade hours after an earthquake shook the Los Angeles area, and admitted it had "frightened her quite a lot".

She added: "I had no idea that this was going to be such a well attended event."

Kate - whose husband Ned Rocknroll or three children Bear, three months, Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, were not in attendance for the ceremony - said being given a star was a "wonderful" moment she would always remember.

She told the assembled crowd - which included her 'Divergent' co-star Shailene Woodley and fellow 'Titanic' actress Kathy Bates - at the Hollywood Boulevard: "Here I am this morning at the infamous corner of Hollywood and vine.

"I believe that so many great young aspiring actors first stepped off the bus with the hope of embarking on a film career from this very spot we all stand in today.

"I feel very honored 20 years into my own career to be standing in such a poignant place and being celebrated in such a spectacular fashion.

"It's really, really wonderful to be here and to be given this award, this accolade, this wonderful moment in my life that I know I will never forget."

Meanwhile, Kathy, 65, made a joke about the 'Reader' actress' star getting "dirty with poo".

She said:"You deserve to have stars strewn at your feet.

"Even though stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame sometimes get a little dirty with a little poo or whatever, what will last is your wonderful beautiful films, characters that you've played that have stolen our hearts.

"Nobody can ever poo on those."
