Oscar winner Jodie Foster finally gets Hollywood star

Jodie Foster, who has won two Academy Awards and whose career spans nearly five decades, receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame alongside her onscreen daughter Kristen Stewart.

LOS ANGELES, USA (Reuters) - After over forty years in the entertainment industry, which have included two Oscar wins, actress and director Jodie Foster received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a prominent spot outside the TCL Chinese Theatre.

"Well it's wonderful because it's in honor of a big career, a long career, the stuff that I've done in the past," Foster said after unveiling the star and posing for photographers.

Foster has directed the film Money Monster starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts about a young man Kyle (Jack O'Connell) who invades a financial news live television show demanding answers about why a company's stock crashed.

Speaking on the podium, Foster addressed the delay in getting a star saying "The star ceremony is something I've always thought of and dreamed of. Foster's co-star from the 2002 thriller 'Panic Room', Kristen Stewart paid homage to the actress turned director, saying "She did everything young, she kicked Yale's ass, she won Oscars, she became a film maker herself, she created a family and still is just normal and cool and kind."

Foster's star is the 2,580th on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
