Felicity Huffman and husband William H Macy larked around as they received a double star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Desperate Housewives actress and partner William, who stars in the US version of TV hit Shameless, were awarded the rare honour during a ceremony in Los Angeles.

Felicity - whose co-stars Marcia Cross and Vanessa Williams turned up to show their support - laughed as her husband danced on top of the star and pretended to fall asleep on it.

During their acceptance speech, William - who married Felicity in 1997 - joked: "The first time I saw Felicity she was doing a scene for acting class wearing a silk, cream-coloured blouse with no bra. I thought, 'Man, this girl is talented'."

Felicity quipped in return: "The first time I saw Bill, he was wearing an Izod shirt with a tie. I thought 'Man, is his wife gorgeous'."

The actress, looking chic in a black shift dress and matching heels, told E! News at the event that she'd be sad to see Desperate Housewives wrap after eight seasons.

"I still get chills when I arrive at the Universal gates," she confessed. "It may be time, but it's sad. We're a family, I love the show."
