Peter Jackson honoured with star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Los Angeles, Dec 9 (PTI) Filmmaker Peter Jackson was awarded with the 2,538th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 53-year-old movie director was supported by his wife Fran Walsh and “The Hobbit” stars like Andy Serkis, Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Lee Pace and Richard Armitage at the unveiling which took place at the Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, reported Ace Showbiz.
“This street here – the first time I ever saw it was when I was 12 years old in 1974 when my mum and dad brought me here on a trip.
“I had been making movies in New Zealand on my Super 8 camera for three or four years and I walked down the street and I looked at these stars and I never ever in my wildest dreams thought I’d be here today,” he said after accepting the honour.
Jackson’s upcoming movie “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”, which is the third and final instalment of “The Hobbit” trilogy, is scheduled to hit theaters on December 17.
