Scarlett Johansson lands Walk of Fame honour

Scarlett Johansson was honored with the 2,470th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday (02May12) and she thanked her lucky stars to be immortalised in cement.

The Avengers star told fans and friends she was "over the moon" about her latest accolade as she unveiled her plaque, confessing she never dared to dream she's be among the 2,500 famous folk feted on Hollywood Boulevard.

A native New Yorker, Scarlett Johansson said, "This industry in which I was practically raised has been so impossibly kind to me. There's never a day where I go to set and don't thank my lucky stars to simply be a working actor."

The actress' mother, grandmother and sister joined her The Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner at the ceremony.

Jeremy Renner paid tribute to the unique Lost in Translation star, stating, "Scarlett is built like a classic Hollywood movie star. However, it is only betrayed by her no-nonsense attitude, her sharp wit and self-deprecating sense of humor that truly defines her alluring charm."

And talking about his experiences with her on The Avengers set, he added, "For six months she continuously threw me around, beat me, stepped on me, and wiped the floor with my dignity and self-respect every day all with a smile on her face.

"But it was her emotional intelligence and commitment to truth that allowed for me to be a better actor and, as a friend, made me a better man."
