On Wednesday, television and film actor Paul Rudd received the 2,554th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actor has currently been making his rounds in the media to promote his new film, Marvel’s Ant-Man, which had its premiere in Hollywood last night. Incidentally, Rudd also co-wrote the film’s screenplay along with Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish and director Adam McKay.
Rudd is best known for his roles in Clueless, Anchorman and its sequel, Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer and in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, as well as in the television shows Friends and Sisters.
“I remember being a kid and walking this boulevard and reading the names, and thinking about what so many other millions of people thought about, which is, ‘Who’s that?'” Rudd said during his HWOF induction speech. “The fact that million of people are going to be able to now see me and ask that same question… is humbling beyond belief.”
Rudd was accompanied at this morning’s Walk Of Fame ceremony by his good friend and fellow actor Adam Scott, Ant-Man co-star Michael Douglas–who both spoke on Rudd’s behalf–and by his family, including his wife Julie and their two children, his mother, sister, nephew and brother-in-law.
Congratulations to Paul Rudd, who definitely deserves the recognition! ☺ 🐜+👨
