Amy Poehler honored by Rashida Jones at star ceremony

Comedienne Amy Poehler was feted by her TV co-stars Rashida Jones and Maya Rudolph as she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.

The funnywoman unveiled the plaque on the famous sidewalk on Thursday (03Dec15) and made the event a family affair by bringing along her parents and her two sons from her marriage to Will Arnett.

She was also joined by her former Parks and Recreation co-star Rashida, who took to the podium to give a speech praising her pal, declaring, "Congratulations, my dear friend. You have the unique combination of boundless talent and unwavering integrity."

Amy's ex-Saturday Night Live co-star Maya Rudolph also attended the event to support her friend, along with Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur, who also spoke during the ceremony.

"I've been told I'm in between Roseanne Barr and Sally Field, which also describes my career in a way, if I play my cards right," joked Amy.

The star was unveiled in front of the Hollywood Wax Museum in Los Angeles.
