James Franco - James Franco receives Hollywood star

James Franco fought back tears as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday (07.03.13).

The 'Oz the Great and Powerful' actor appeared overwhelmed with pride as he cemented his place in entertainment history by receiving the commemorative plaque in front of the El Capitan theatre.

Addressing a crowd which included his mother Betsy and brother Dave, he said: ''I wish that I could put a bunch of names on this star because this is a collaborative business... The people behind the scenes, the people who have been there for me, all the way through, if I could, I'd put all your names on there. Thank you and I'll always remember this.''

James is known for his multiple creative endeavours, including painting, writing, and lecturing, which his 'Oz the Great and Powerful' director Sam Raimi mocked in his tribute speech to the 34-year-old star.

Sam said: ''Working with James over the years, I've learned many things about him. James is a teacher, a poet, a sculptor, an actor, a director, a writer, a producer, a basket weaver - the thing goes on and on for days! Seems like we're always discovering James' next endeavour.

''Today we join the rest of the world to honour you in your achievements with a much-deserved star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, a star made from marble - which you yourself have hewn from a mountain, from brass that you have smelted!''

James' friend and 'Pineapple Express' co-star Seth Rogen also gave a speech at the ceremony.
