Jack Black gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
UPI News Service, 09/19/2018
Jack Black was honored with the 2,645th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday.
The actor, who was honored for his career acting in film as well as his work with his comedy rock group Tenacious D, said he was "nervous" and "embarrassed" to receive the star, which fulfilled a lifelong dream.
"If you get one of those starts on the sidewalk, that mean's you've made it and I feel like I've finally grasped that sweet brass ring!" Black said. "The question is, where do we go now?"
Actor and writer Mike White, who starred alongside Black in "School of Rock," commended Black for being a "warm, genuine and kind person" and for taking time to interact with fans.
"To be as famous as you are, and still be a human, takes a strong sense of self, a strong sense of character," White said.
"He loves people, he loves to be loved and people love him. What I think is the most impressive is that the legend that they love is incredibly close to the actual person that he is."
