Stan Lee - Lee Overwhelmed By Hollywood Star Honour

Comic book legend STAN LEE has spoken of his delight after he was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday (04Jan11), insisting he "can't believe" he's been awarded an iconic sidewalk star.
The Marvel publishing mogul, who helped bring to life characters such as Spider-Man, the X-Men and Iron Man, was on hand to see his permanent tribute unveiled on Los Angeles' Hollywood Boulevard, surrounded by cheering friends and fans.
And he told reporters of his shock at being named as an inductee on the famous strip, saying, "Would you believe I'm on the same block as Paul Newman and Sophia Loren?... I really still can't believe it. I think they have me confused with someone else, but I'm not gonna tell them!"
Lee, who has enjoyed numerous cameo roles in his characters' superhero films, also joked that he hopes his Hollywood star will lead to more acting slots, adding, "One good thing about it: Maybe now I'll be able to get cameos of more than 30 seconds in length. With my new elevation to legendhood, maybe I'll rate a full minute from now on!"
The Hollywood star came as a belated birthday present for Lee, who turned 88 years old on 28 December (10).
