Award winning actress Cameron Diaz is the latest Hollywood celebrity to receive her very own star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony was held Monday (Jun 22) in Hollywood, CA in front of the Egyption Theater and her friends Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Lucy Liu all came through to show their support. Her new movie, “My Sister’s Keeper,” hits theaters this Friday (Jun 26).
Diaz, the 2,386th star to be so honored on the sidewalk, which runs along Hollywood Blvd. and Vine St., dedicated the star to her mother and father. Her father, Emilio Diaz, passed away in April 2008, but her mother Billie and her older sister Chimene attended the ceremony.
“I dedicate this star to the eternal love that my mom and dad shared. It was what has given me the strength and courage to live this extraordinary life, and it was that powers the light that burns inside of me, bright enough for me to be honored today with this star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
