We already knew Steve Carell was a star, but now it’s official.
The Massachusetts-born actor was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at a ceremony in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon.
While the festivities were dampened a bit by the rain, that didn’t stop a few of Carell’s famous friends from swinging by to show their support. Ryan Gosling, who co-stars with Carell in The Big Short, stopped by the celebration, as did Will Ferrell, who gave a hilarious introduction for his old Anchorman pal.
“Today, the City of Angels is crying, but not tears of sorrow. They are tears of joy as we honor Steve Carell,” Ferrell said. “There is not just one Steve Carell, there are thousands of Steve Carell. We are all Steve Carell.”
Not only did Carell receive the first star on the Walk of Fame for 2016, but Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Leron Gubler also declared January 6 “Steve Carell Day.”
The actor thanked the organizers for the honor and all of the people in attendance for braving the lousy weather to share the special day with him.
“This means an awful lot to me,” Carell said. “Thank you for this really lovely honor and thanks for coming out on such a dreadful, dreadful day.”
