Sally Field - Sally Field Gives Moving Speech At Hollywood Star Unveiling

Sally Field brought her close pal and peer Jane Fonda to tears with a passionate speech about her love of acting as she unveiled her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Mrs. Doubtfire actress was honoured with the 2,524th star on the iconic walkway, in front of the Hollywood Wax Museum, on Monday (05May14).

Beau Bridges spoke about working with Field on 1979's Norma Rae, while her lifelong friend Fonda also told the crowd about her relationship with the Oscar winner.

The On Golden Pond star was overcome with emotion as Field gave an impassioned speech about her determination to become an actor.

She said, "Yes, so it's true - 50 years ago this year, I began this journey. I was 17 years old, didn't have an agent, wasn't a member of the Screen Actors' Guild, and all of a sudden, I was the star of a television series.

"To have a long-term career, you have to want what you want, more than you think you're capable of wanting. You have to constantly step aside of anything having to do with ego, and entitlement, and just head to the work wherever it might be. I've ridden the highs, and tried to learn from the lows... I've done a love scene with a pelican, but then I've also done a love scene with Paul Newman...

"I've been fully clothed, semi clothed and fully naked. I've worked my whole life and feel the many miles I have accumulated in this saddle, and I can tell your right here and right now I have never, in this last 50 years, never, not once, considered changing my mind."
