emma1Los Angeles, Aug 7, (THAINDIAN NEWS) British star Emma Thompson was enshrined on the Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in front of an English-themed pub on the Hollywood Boulevard on Friday. The ceremony which was held outside the Pig ‘n Whistle pub witnessed the celebrated actress and screenwriter receive the 2,416th on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in presence of some of her co-stars as well as an enthusiastic crowd which had gathered at the Hollywood Boulevard to catch a glimpse of the moment of glory of the “Love Actually” star.

The ceremony in which the much-coveted honor was bestowed upon Emma Thompson, was attended by “House” star Hugh Laurie as well as her co-star in her upcoming flick “Nanny McPhee Returns,” Maggie Gyllenhaal. However, one of the major highlights of the mid-day event turned out to be a baby pig who even posed with the 51-year-old actress on her new star. As Emma Thompson received the recognition in front of the spectators who cheered incessantly when the renowned actress was enshrined in concrete, the Oscar winning star revealed that winning the award in front of the English-themed pub was indeed appropriate.

While talking to the media later, actor Hugh Laurie who had dated Emma Thompson when they studied together at Cambridge University, revealed that the huge bundle of talent that the actress possessed was quite obvious even during their college days. In the meanwhile, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal who was also present at the ceremony also had only words of praise for the “Brideshead Revisited” star as she described the actress as an extremely generous person who never fails to shower her as well as her daughter with gifts.
