Emma Thompson gets Hollywood star

Emma Thompson has been enshrined in concrete outside the historic Pig 'n' Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard.

The 51-year-old actress was presented with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, two weeks ahead of the August 20 release of her latest film, Nanny McPhee Returns.

Nanny cast-mate Maggie Gyllenhaal and House star Hugh Laurie, whom Thompson dated when they were at Cambridge University, were on hand for the ceremony, as was a baby pig, who posed for photos with Thompson on her new star.

Thompson also had a pint of beer on her new piece of pavement property.

She won an Academy Award for her leading role as Margaret Schlegel in 1992's Howard's End.

She won a second Oscar in 1996 for best adapted screenplay for Sense And Sensibility, for which she also received a best actress nomination.
