Emma Thompson receives Hollywood star

Monday August 9, 2010

Emma Thompson has been honoured with a Hollywood star outside the Pig 'n Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard.

The 51-year-old actress revealed her satisfaction with the star's location: "I'm right outside a pub, which couldn't be better because I love pubs and I love drinking.

"Not something that you can easily admit to in Los Angeles because no one drinks here and they're very puritanical about it, which I don't approve of because it's a very spiritual activity," she joked.

Her delight was clear as she willingly posed for pictures on her star, pint in one hand and pig in the other.

Old schoolmate Hugh Laurie was also present to join in the celebrations, as was Emma's co-star in the film Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, Maggie Gyllenhaal.
