Anne Hathaway Finally Gets Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame
Anne Hathaway has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, and the actress gave a touching speech as she received the prestigious accolade on Thursday night in Los Angeles.
The Princess Diaries icon acknowledged the indigenous people of LA as she accepted the star in the sweetest way.
She said: "I started to think about the land that goes underneath the star, that land that goes beneath all of these stars, and how it was cared and kept for millennia, more than millennia, by the Tongva people.
"I think it's important to mention that they still live here today. So the soul and the spirit that runs through the earth beneath us originates with and continues to be kept by them.
"So I would like to begin by thanking the Tongva people and by acknowledging that they are the rightful keepers of the land this star is on."
The crowds watching on as she accepted the star applauded her speech, clapping and cheering.
The Tongva people historically inhabited the Los Angeles Basic and Southern Channel Islands, an area covering approximately 4,000 square miles.
Anne was joined by her family and friends for the awards ceremony on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, including her husband Adam Shulman, mum Kate McCauley Hathaway and her dad, Gerald Hathaway.
Rebel Wilson, who Anne stars alongside in new film The Hustle, was also there to mark the milestone, and the pair posed for the cameras.
She honoured those closest to her, too. "The gift of being the focus and recipient of your tremendous and enlightened love is, along with motherhood, the most important and profound part of my very blessed life," she said.
"I am able to walk through this world as I do because you make me safe, held, seen and adored. I love you."
Mum-of-one Anne is currently running a busy schedule as she is also filming the musical series Modern Love for Amazon, as well as the film The Witches. And she is also starring as a reporter in The Last Thing He Wanted.
Congratulations, Anne. So well-deserved!
