Russell Crowe gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Russell Crowe, the star of Gladiator, has been honoured with the 2,404th star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

Crowe told hundreds of fans who gathered for a dedication ceremony: “Thanks for the privilege. I’ll always be grateful for it.” The actor was joined by his wife Danielle and sons Tennyson, three, and Charles, six. Fellow Australian actor Sam Worthington, talk show host Jay Leno, and director Ron Howard, also attended the ceremony which was held under a tent because of rain.

Crowe asked that his star be placed in the nearest available space to legendary actor Marlon Brando, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. It will sit close by, next to those of Nicole Kidman and Anthony Hopkins. He had reportedly turned down a star before because he didn’t believe he deserved it.

The 46-year-old actor was born in New Zealand, and is a naturalised Australian. He began acting on television in the early 1990s.

He has been nominated for three Oscars and won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2001 for Gladiator.
