Anjelica Huston was honoured in Los Angeles over the weekend (23-24Jan10) with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Oscar-winner was on hand to watch as the tribute was unveiled in front of a crowd of her friends and family.
Huston follows in the footsteps of her late father John Huston, who also has a star on the famed Hollywood Boulevard.
The actress admits she is overwhelmed by the honour, because it is a permanent reminder of her stellar career.
She says, "The beauty of this award is that it's as permanent as anything in life these days. It can't be misplaced or left in the ladies' room by accident and I always get the same billing. From here on, I'll always know where to find myself and so will other people.
"Now I don't have to join Facebook, because when someone wants to find me, this is where I'll be and I'll always be here."
