Funnyman Adam Sandler finally has his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
‘Waterboy’ costar Henry Winkler was part of the ceremony Tuesday, as was Kevin James, who appeared with Sandler in ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.’
‘This is a big deal,’ Sandler said. ‘I feel honored and can’t believe this has happened in my life.’
The actor-comedian attended the ceremony with wife Jackie and their daughters Sadie Madison and Sunny Madeline in tow, pulling at his leg and asking to be picked up during the festivities.
‘Let’s hear it for my kids, who are now showing you that I cannot control them,’ he joked as he took the podium to receive the 2,341st star, this one in front of the W Hotel.
‘All they ever did was make me feel like I’m good at things, and even when I was terrible at things made me brim with confidence,’ he said.
(We love it when the stars bring their adorable kiddie constellations to these events.)
Sandler got his start in the early ‘90s as a writer and featured character on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ then grew to super-stardom with flicks including ‘Happy Gilmore,’ ‘Billy Madison’ and ‘The Wedding Singer.’
He has starred in 11 films that grossed $100-million-plus and will soon share the screen with Jennifer Aniston in ‘Just Go With It,’ which hits theaters Feb. 11.
