Tim Robbins Earns Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

by | 11 October 2008

Actor Tim Robbins has become the 2,371st celebrity to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Shawshank Redemption star said he was "really honoured" to receive the prestigious accolade at a Los Angeles ceremony.

Robbins, an Oscar-winner in 2004 for Mystic River, joked about the fate of his star after the honour was confirmed.

"I used to take the bus from here to Burbank to go to work," he explained.

"When the bus was late, I would walk up and down and throw my cigarettes down. Now I have the honour of having this done to my star."

The 49-year-old's star sits next to that of his partner Susan Sarandon, who also attended the Friday unveiling.

"I am so pleased to be a part of his life, and I want to present Tim's best production - our three kids," she said.

Robbins was nominated for a best director Oscar in 1996 for Dead Man Walking, which saw Sarandon claim the best actress Academy award.

Actor and comedian Jack Black also attended the Walk of Fame ceremony and raised a laugh with remarks about his friend's height.

"I literally looked up to him," he commented. "I actually became his stalker because I wanted to be part of his world."

Robbins can currently be seen alongside Bill Murray and Saoirse Ronan in City of Ember.
