Julianne Moore's Walk of Fame Star
Los Angeles - Julianne Moore received the 2,507th star on Hollywood Boulevard's "Walk of Fame" have bestowed actress Julianne Moore with a star Thursday.

Wearing a yellow dress and white heels, Moore unveiled her star, located opposite Hollywood's historic Pantages Theatre, one week before the release of her latest film Carrie, a remake of the classic 1976 horror flick.

"Growing up it never even occurred to me that it was possible to be an actor for a living," Moore, 52, said.

"But I did it because my favorite thing to do was read and it was a way for me to imagine that I was in the book and I loved it," Moore said.

Honour from Game Change director

Multiple colleagues from Moore's career in film were present to honor her, including Jay Roach, director of the HBO television movie Game Change.

Moore's performance as US vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin in the 2012 film won her an Emmy Award for best TV movie actress.

Working alongside Moore, Roach said "everybody has to step it up. Everyone has to work much harder And she's not pushing people or trying to control everything. She's just collaborative and patient and generous."

"The only downside to work with Julianne Moore is that you become addicted to working with Julianne Moore," Roach said.

Gordon-Levitt also gives his say

Actor-director Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who shares the screen with Moore in Don Jon, which he directed and is currently in theaters, honored his colleague as well.

"She's not faking it when she's performing. She's feeling what the character is feeling. It's a very difficult thing to do," Gordon-Levitt said.

Nominated four times for an Oscar, Moore has nearly 60 films under her belt including Boogie Nights, The Big Lebowski, Magnolia, Hannibal, Son of Man and Crazy, Stupid, Love.
