Oscar winner Emma Thompson has been immortalised on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after unveiling her star on Friday.

The actress was joined by her Nanny McPhee Returns co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal and her ex-boyfriend, House star Hugh Laurie, when she was honored with the 2,416th star, located outside the historic Pig ‘n Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard.

The 51-year-old Brit won her first Academy Award for Best Actress in 1992 for her role in Howard’s End, and scooped her second Oscar in 1996 for Best Adapted Screenplay for the film version of classic Jane Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility.
