Helen Mirren lands Walk of Fame tribute
Dame Helen Mirren will kick off the New Year by unveiling the 2,488th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Oscar winner will be feted with the sidewalk honour on 3 January.
Ironically, The Queen actress' pavement plaque will be placed right next to The King's Speech star Colin Firth's, right in front of The Pig N' Whistle Pub, a British-themed bar.
Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, says: "What a way to start the New Year on the Walk of Fame with one of the most acclaimed actresses known around the world. We are thrilled to honour Helen and welcome her to our Walk of Fame family."
