Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher and Tom Cruise were among the celebrities who turned out to applaud producer Jerry Bruckheimer as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles on Monday (24Jun13).
The moviemaker unveiled the 2,501st pavement plaque, and the famous faces from his films were on hand to witness the ceremony.
Jerry O'Connell, Marg Helgenberger, Jon Voight and Martin Lawrence attended the ceremony, as did the producer's wife Linda.
Depp made a speech in honour of the moviemaker, who he has collaborated with on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and this year's (13) The Lone Ranger.
He declared, "Without Jerry, there would be no Pirates, there would be no (character) Captain Jack. Without Jerry, there would be no Lone Ranger, there would be no reinvigorated Tonto. So I have a lot to thank him for.
"The man is a legend to me, a legend to us all, hence this congregation to celebrate him for his long-deserved star on the Walk of Fame."
Bruckheimer called the star an "unbelievable honour" and joked, "I won't get too big-headed, though, because the list also includes Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and the Three Stooges."
