Jennifer Lopez has received the 2,500th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 'On The Floor' hitmaker - who was joined by her five-year-old twins, Max and Emme, boyfriend Casper Smart, 'Monster-in-Law' co-star Jane Fonda and music collaborator Pitbull - admits she feels ''inspired to work harder'' after being presented with the commemorative plaque.
Jennifer paid tribute to her fans by saying: ''I love you, thank you so much for going on this journey with me. This landmark moment inspires me to work harder and dream bigger for all that is the future.
''I hope you feel as I do that it was all worth it, and I hope that I have touched your hearts even in a small way. I really am overwhelmed. ''This all feels, I don't know, kind of surreal, but so real. It's awesome.''
She added: ''A star on Hollywood boulevard, I said I wasn't going to cry. I really am overwhelmed - it all feels kind of, I don't know, surreal. I'm a lucky girl. My dream was always to entertain. I just wanted to be good at what I did.''
Gregory Nava, who directed Jennifer in 'Selena,' branded her ''the hardest worker'' he's ever known.
He explained: ''We made a couple of movies together and when I directed `Selena,' - she rocked the world when she played `Selena.' Jennifer said to me, `Greg, I'm gonna become the first Latina superstar. I'm gonna have a number-one movie and a number-one record at the same time.' And I said, `Impossible, nobody does that.' Yeah. Impossible for everybody but Jennifer.''
