Russell Crowe’s star shone bright despite dark rain clouds threatening his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. The New Zealand-born, Australian-raised actor has been honoured with the 2404th star outside the Kodak Theatre, home of the Oscars.

 

Fellow Aussie Sam Worthington, US talk-show host Jay Leno, director-producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazier and Crowe’s wife Danielle and sons Tennyson, three, and Charles, six, attended the ceremony.

 

Many in the crowd of more than 500 were spotted wearing Crowe’s beloved South Sydney Rabbitohs jumpers and caps.

 

“Thanks for the privilege. I’ll always be grateful for it,” Crowe said.

 

With rain threatening, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce decided to hold the ceremony under a tent. But Los Angeles’ famed sunshine tried to break through as the star was unveiled. Leno joked that Crowe had sought divine intervention.

 

“It was pouring rain this morning and Russell Crowe made one phone call. The sun has come out,” Leno said.

 

Crowe’s star sits next to those belonging to Nicole Kidman, Anthony Hopkins and Martin Scorsese.

  Russell Crowe has earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. 

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has revealed its honorees for 2010 and Russell Crowe’s name was on a list of 28 entertainers.

 

A date for the New Zealand-born Oscar winner’s ceremony, where a star will be placed on Hollywood Boulevard, is yet to be scheduled, but it will occur during 2010.

 

Other celebrities set to cement a place in Hollywood history in 2010 are director James Cameron, actors John Cusack, Colin Firth, Adam Sandler, Emma Thompson and Mark Wahlberg, and musicians Bryan Adams, The Funk Brothers, Chaka Khan, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, the band ZZ Top and Roy Orbison.

 

The Chamber of Commerce selected just 28 names from more than 200 nominations.

 

Australians who recently received the honour include Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett.

 

Earlier this year Hugh Jackman received another honour, leaving his hand prints in wet concrete outside Hollywood’s Grauman Chinese Theatre.
