Kate Winslet - Kate Winslet receives Walk of Fame star

Kate Winslet received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday (17.03.14).

The 38-year-old actress was honoured with the accolade hours after an earthquake shook the Los Angeles area, and admitted it had ''frightened her quite a lot''.

She added: ''I had no idea that this was going to be such a well attended event.''

Kate - whose husband Ned Rocknroll or three children Bear, three months, Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, were not in attendance for the ceremony - said being given a star was a ''wonderful'' moment she would always remember.

She told the assembled crowd - which included her 'Divergent' co-star Shailene Woodley and fellow 'Titanic' actress Kathy Bates - at the Hollywood Boulevard: ''Here I am this morning at the infamous corner of Hollywood and vine.

''I believe that so many great young aspiring actors first stepped off the bus with the hope of embarking on a film career from this very spot we all stand in today.

''I feel very honoured 20 years into my own career to be standing in such a poignant place and being celebrated in such a spectacular fashion.

''It's really, really wonderful to be here and to be given this award, this accolade, this wonderful moment in my life that I know I will never forget.''

Meanwhile, Kathy, 65, made a joke about the 'Reader' actress' star getting ''dirty with poo''.

She said:''You deserve to have stars strewn at your feet.

''Even though stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame sometimes get a little dirty with a little poo or whatever, what will last is your wonderful beautiful films, characters that you've played that have stolen our hearts.

''Nobody can ever poo on those.''
