Samuel L. Jackson and Ellen Degeneres helped honor their pal Steve Harvey in Los Angeles on Monday as the comedian and TV personality received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Tony Award-winning Family Feud host donned a flashy yellow suit as he celebrated the achievement with friends and fans before thanking his wife Marjorie and their children for their never-ending support.
Pulp Fiction actor Jackson was on hand to photograph the occasion, as was TV psychologist Phil McGraw, and comedienne DeGeneres delivered a few remarks, joking, “When they asked me to come and do this today, I didn’t have to think – I said yes right away, then I realized that I wasn’t getting paid and I tried to back out, but I couldn’t, it was too late. So I’m here.”
The veteran entertainer admits he was overcome with emotion to be recognized for his lengthy radio and television career – telling Eonline.com, “People call it luck, but what luck actually is – luck is when hard work runs up into opportunity and people describe it as luck. I do work very hard, I kid you not – but I’m also a recipient of a lot of grace and mercy.”
