Scarlett Johansson receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Wellington: Scarlett Johansson has said that she is “totally thrilled” to have received a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 27-year-old actress smiled broadly as she was surrounded by family and friends to receive the honour.

She was also joined by her ‘Avengers’ co-star Jeremy Renner who planted a big kiss on her cheek as she knelt down by the California landmark.

“I was totally thrilled, of course, because I feel very nostalgic about that kind of thing,” quoted her as telling the crowd.

“It’s a wonderful tradition, and I felt like I finally made it. I really did!

“I was like, ‘Wow! I’ve been in the industry for 20 years, and I’ve worked since I was a kid.’ It felt like a big milestone,” she added.

Johannson received star number 2,470 in the motion picture category.

The blonde beauty just wrapped filming on independent movie ‘Under The Skin’ and will next portray Janet Leigh in ‘Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho’ co-starring with Anthony Hopkins.
