“I never thought I’d hear myself saying this but you know it’s an absolute honor to be walked all over in Hollywood,” Craig quipped as his star was unveiled.

“And if happiness is measured by the company we keep, then, me being on this pavement surrounded by all of these legends, makes me a very, very, very happy man.”

Further down the storied street, where over 2,000 stars pay homage to some of the biggest names of film, television and music, fans gathered to toast their gadget-wielding hero.

Actor Remi Malik, who plays Bond’s rival in the 25th installment of the mega franchise, was on hand to offer praise for the star, who he said had been a delight to work with.

“If you’re lucky enough to play a bad guy, you’d better make sure the good guy is legendary. This good guy’s the best,” he said.
