LOS ANGELESLethal Weapon director-producer Richard Donner and his producer wife Lauren shared a rare romantic honor Thursday: the unveiling of their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Guests at the ceremony included Dakota Fanning, who appears in the new film The Secret Life of Bees, which Lauren Donner produced.


“I was in Hollywood yesterday going to a screening, and I said, ‘Let’s go drive by my star.’ I was so excited about it we drove by twice,” said Lauren Donner. “I wanted to stop the passers-by and say, ‘I’m getting one of these tomorrow!'”


She praised her husband, calling him “the light of my life.”


Richard Donner, in turn, gushed, “I thank Hollywood for Lauren.”


The pair met during production of 1985’s Ladyhawke, which Richard Donner directed and produced, and Lauren Donner co-produced.
